Popular television actress Sakshi Tanwar, famous for her role in serials like ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii’ and ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’, has been signed to play the role of Aamir Khan’s wife in his much-awaited film ‘Dangal’.
Sakshi has acted in a couple of small-budget films and also made a guest appearance in ‘C Kkompany’.
While Mallika Sherawat was rumoured to be playing Aamir’s wife, more than 70 actresses were auditioned for the role. Known for being a perfectionist, Aamir enacted a few scenes with almost all the candidates as he wanted to gauge how they looked on-screen and also the comfort level they shared.
Sakshi was finally confirmed after Aamir and his team were convinced that the two would look good together on-screen.
The actress will now undergo intense training sessions to get the Haryanvi diction and the body language right. She will also be meeting real life Haryanvi couples to better understand their mannerisms.
The attention to every minute detail and the effort that Aamir puts into each of his films is truly mind-boggling.
