Not Fatima Sana Shaikh, but Aamir will romance Katrina in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’

Ever since Dangal girl Fatima Sana Shaikh was announced to be part of Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs Of Hindostan. While there was a general contention that Fatima will play Aamir’s love interest in the movie.

The idea appears somewhat repugnant in the light of the fact that Fatima played Aamir’s daughter in Dangal.

But wait. There is a twist in the film. We have now heard that Mr. Perfectionist will not romance Sana but Katrina. Yes, If one goes by the buzz then Aamir Khan’s love interest would be played by Katrina Kaif. The duo had earlier shared screen space in Dhoom 3.

While Fatima will play a woman who wants to avenge the death of her family.

The daily quoted a source as saying, “The script of TOH required two actresses – a raw, rough and tough Indian girl who is a part of Aamir’s gang of Thugs and in love with his character and a beautiful British lady with whom Aamir’s character falls in love with. While the Indian girl will be played by Fatima, Katrina plays the British girl.”

Director Vijay Krishna had said that the role of the girl is pivotal to the film and Fatima was a ‘gifted performer of action’. “

Earlier while talking to Hindustan Times Fatima had said, “I knew that people are going to think like this. I am an actor after all. Suppose if I hadn’t acted in Dangal, and got an offer to act opposite Aamir sir, I would have, of course, said yes. Even today, if I am asked to act opposite Shah Rukh Khan, I would stand in the frame immediately.”

When you have grown up watching these stars and are fond of them, you would definitely want to work with them. I used to get disheartened and sad (when I heard such things), because I thought, ‘Me playing his daughter in the film shouldn’t be the reason for me not getting the part’. There have been so many instances of (female) actors playing mothers, daughters and lovers (with the same male actors). That’s our job, and you keep playing different characters from different age groups. So, i don’t have any issues.” she added.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs Of Hindostan is scheduled to go on floors on 1st June and will hit the theatrical screens on Diwali 2018.
