Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal will be screened for Members of Parliament on March 23, Thursday, in a bid to spread the message of women empowerment.

Dangal is the story of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his wrestler daughters Geeta and Babita.

The movie will be screened on the initiative of Lok Sabha Speaker Sumita Mahajan. It will be screened in Parliament’s Balayogi auditorium in the evening after the session gets over.

“It is my privilege to inform you that the Speaker has desired that popular Hindi Film Dangal be screened for the Members of both Houses on Thursday, March 23 at 1830 hrs.I would be grateful if could kindly make it convenient to grace the occasion along with your spouse,” said a communique by Secretary General of Lok Sabha, Anoop Mishra.

The event is being organised by the Welfare department of the Lok Sabha Secretariat. “The objective is to send across the message of women empowerment so that the law makers can promote it in their respective constituencies,” said a senior official from the department.

Dangal, which gives a message about girl power, is about a wrestler who trains his daughters in the field of wrestling and turns them into medal winners.

Last year, the play Chanakya was staged for the MPs.
