In his next film Dangal, Aamir Khan will be seen playing a father to four daughters.
After having auditioned more than 21,000 girls till now, the casting team has got two girls , Fatima Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra , on board to essay the role of Aamir’s daughters.
Fatima is a Mumbai based girl, has acted in a few films and a TV serial and dabbled in photography. Sanya, born and brought up in Delhi, is a trained ballet dancer.
While the film will focus on the two girls who at the age of 22 and 20 made history, a search is still on for actors who will play their younger versions.
It is a tough role for which the girls are required to be slightly athletic and will have to undergo strenuous training.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari , Dangal is slated for a 2016 release.
