We reported a couple of days ago that the casting team of Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’ had auditioned more than 20,000 girls.
Now, there are reports that the makers have signed Fatima Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra to play Aamir’s daughters in the keenly-awaited film.
Mumbai-girl Fatima has done a television serial and a couple of small roles in films. Sanya is trained ballet dancer from Delhi.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal will feature Aamir playing the role of a 55-year-old wrestler, who dreams of his daughters fulfilling his unfulfilled dreams.
The film releases in theatres during Christmas next year.
