Sakshi Tanwar to play Aamir Khan’s wife in ‘Dangal’

  • Published in Entertainment
TV actress Sakshi Tanwar, who became popular with shows like ‘Kahaani Ki Ghar Ghar Ki’ and ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’, has managed to get her big break in Bollywood with an Aamir Khan film.

Sakshi, who has done a handful of miniscule roles in the past and a prominent role in the controversial film Mohalla Assi, will now play the role of Aamir Khan’s wife in his next titled Dangal.

From what we hear, Sakshi Tanwar was selected after the makers auditioned over 70 actresses for the role. While it was chemistry, comfort level and body language that the makers were looking for, they found that Sakshi fits the bill.

It is also being said that Aamir and others were keen on casting a new face but ended up roping in the popular TV actress for the role after a lot of discussions. However, it seems that Sakshi, will have to undergo intense diction training in Haryanvi.

‘Dangal’ has Aamir Khan playing the role of wrestler Mahavir Phogat and Sakshi along with the actor will be seen as an aged couple in the film. The film also stars a few newbies like Fatima Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra playing his daughters, while Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar will play the younger versions of the daughters. Directed by Neeraj Pandey and produced by Disney UTV, Dangal is slated to release on December 23, 2015
