The official handle Aamir Khan Productions handle posted a message expressing their condolences. "We are deeply saddened to hear about our Suhani passing away. Our heartfelt condolences to her mother Poojaji, and the entire family," the statement read.

'Dangal' follows the story of the famous Indian wrestlers Babita Phogat and Geeta Phogat.

The statement concluded with, "Such a talented young girl, such a team player, Dangal would have been incomplete without Suhani. Suhani, you will always remain a star in our hearts. May you rest in peace."

Dangal, which released 2016, follows the story of Indian wrestlers Geeta Phogat and Babita Phogat and focuses primarily on how their father Mahavir Singh Phogat (played by Aamir Khan) supported them.
