It is a known fact that Aamir Khan will be essaying a father in Nitesh Tiwari's 'Dangal'. He will be playing the role of real life wrestler Mahavir Phogat.
While Aamir has been prepping for his role, the casting team is hunting for girls who will play his daughters in the film. The team has been scouting and has auditioned more than 21,000 girls till now. But they haven't zeroed down anyone.
It is a tough role. The girls need to be slightly athletic and willing to undergo strenuous training. The director, Nitesh Tiwari, is certain that he does not want to cast someone from the industry. They are looking for fresh faces who have little or no former training in acting. So even when the team selects someone for auditioning, they have to give them time to prepare for the screen test, making the process even more challenging.
