Reportedly Mallika Sherawat had auditioned for the role of Aamir Khan's wife in 'Dangal' but eventually lost that part to TV actress Sakshi Tanwar.
Now Mallika has revealed the real reason why she didn't bag that character. She says that she didn't get that role because Aamir Khan didn't think that she looked old enough to play mother of four teenage girls.
As per an Indian Express report the actress was quoted as saying, "I had auditioned for the role of Aamir’s wife in ‘Dangal’. Aamir Khan and the film unit loved my auditions. But as my role would be a mother of 4 grown up girls, Aamir felt that regardless of whatever could be done; I might not look old enough to play a mother to four teenage daughters. That is the only reason why I did not get cast in the film."
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari 'Dangal' is loosely based on the life of the famous Indian wrestler Mahavir Phogat. The flick will hit the big screens on Christmas 2016.
