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.
