When quizzed Aamir about Mallika being finalized for the role, he said, “No, the casting is still going on. Mallika is a wonderful actress and it was really sweet of her. In fact, she contacted my casting director. Right now, we are concentrating on the casting of the girls. when I say girls, we have got Fatima and Sana but were are sharply concentrating on the casting of the girls who will be playing the younger roles (12-14 years old) of Geeta & Babita because these are the though casting; the girls have to be good actresses, they have to be good in wrestling. When I say good in wrestling, they have to be athletic, we will teach them wrestling but if the person isn’t athletic then they will not be able to learn wrestling also.”
He added, “So once that is done we will be coming to the other casting- the wife, the other lovely role of my nephew and other parts. So we will come to that.”
The film also stars Fatima Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, who will portray the role of Aamir’s daughters. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by UTV Motion Pictures, DANGAL is slated to release on the Christmas weekend of 2016.
