It was reported that Fatima Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra have already been finalised to play to the role of Aamir Khan’s daughters in Nitesh Tiwari's ‘Dangal’. Now, the makers have zeroed in on two more names to play younger Fatima and Sanya.
Zaira Wasim from Jammu and Kashmir and Suhani Bhatnagar from Delhi have been roped in to play Aamir's younger daughters in the film.
‘Dangal’ is based on the real life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh and his famous daughter Geeta and Babita Phogat and the relationship between them.
Earlier in an interview, Aamir had said, “Dangal is not just a film about wrestling but an emotional journey of a father and his two daughters, which teaches us to empower our girls.”
Director Nitesh Tiwari had finalised Fatima and Sanya for the roles, who will be seen wrestling on-screen and Aamir Khan, as on-screen father will be coach of the two Phogat sisters.
‘Dangal’ is set to hit the shooting floors in September this year.
