Dangal Girl Sana Shaikh was believed to be the first choice to play a romantic character against Aamir Khan in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. A lot has been speculated about the leading lady in the film. And now, rumours are rife that ‘Dangal’ girl Fatima Sana Shaikh has been dropped from consideration.
The reason for dropping her name is reportedly very flimsy. The script requires the actress to kiss the character to be played by Aamir in the film for a dream sequence. According to a report in MissMalini,com, since the pretty girl played the role of his daughter in ‘Dangal’, Aditya felt that it wouldn’t be a good idea to romantically pair her opposite Aamir. Certainly it is not a valid ground to drop an artist from the film.
Sana is a professional artist and expected to play all kinds of role. A kiss can not be a reason to drop someone from the film unless she is found lacking in skills. Her performance in Dangal was appreciated by most of the critics and audience.
The report even suggests that Aamir wanted to have Sana on board for the short by significant part but Aditya opined differently.The hunt for an actress for the character in question is still on!Thugs of Hindostan will see two of the biggest names in the world of Hindi Cinema coming together on screen for the first time – Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan
