There was a mystery around the female lead of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s Thugs Of Hindostan. However, it can now be confirmed that Fatima Sana Shaikh, who was seen with Aamir in Dangal will star with him again in Thugs Of Hindostan.
While speaking about female character in the film, director Vijay Krishna Acharya said, “The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”
Earlier, there were reports that producer Aditya Chopra was not very keen with the idea of having Fatima in Thugs Of Hindostan considering the film apparently involves a dream sequence in which Aamir and the leading lady share an intimate kiss. Since Fatima has played Aamir’s daughter in Dangal, Adi thought it will be uncomfortable for the audience to watch a romantic scene between Aamir and Fatima. Now those were just the rumours, as Thugs Of Hindostan might not have that dream sequence at all.
Thugs of Hindostan unites Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan onscreen for the first time and promises to be a larger than life, grand cinematic experience.
The film will go on floor on June 1 and is expected to hit the screens around Diwali next year.
