IT’S OFFICIAL, SAKSHI TO PLAY AAMIR’S WIFE
There has been a lot of speculation about who will play Aamir Khan’s wife in his next film, where he plays a wrestler, and we have exclusively learned that TV actor Sakshi Tanwar has been finalised for the role.
“Yes, it’s true. Sakshi’s part is interesting as well as challenging. Over 70 heroines auditioned for the same role. Around 52 of them were from smaller towns across places like Haryana and Punjab; a few have done work on television. None of those auditioned were known faces from Bollywood because the makers wanted an ‘organic chemistry’ between Aamir and his on-screen wife,” says an insider.
It’s interesting to note that Aamir himself acted with all the 70 aspirants when they auditioned for the part. “Generally, no big star would do it, but Aamir did it since the idea was to gauge the actors’ body language, comfort level and look (together). After several days of discussion and brain-storming, Aamir and the makers collectively took the call to cast Sakshi,” adds the insider.
