However, in a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Aamir has rubbished the reports and said that instead of Katrina it is the Dangal actress who will play the lead role in the movie.
Fans of Katrina Kaif were elated to hear that the actress had bagged a role in Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan, but it appears that newbie Fatima Sana Shaikh is playing the central character in the film, and Kat is just a glam doll. "Mr Bachchan, Fatima, my role are the three key characters in the film", Aamir was quoted as saying. Though rumours suggest that the actor, having worked with Fatima in Dangal talked the makers into hiring her, however, Kiran Rao refutes those claims suggesting the decision of casting her in Thugs of Hindostan was not her husband's decision alone. Talking about her co-star Aamir, she further added, "I still bully him".
Notably, Aamir has been mighty impressed with Fatima's performace in Dangal and had even recommended her for Thugs of Hindostan. The 25-year old actress had played the role of Geeta Phogat, the actor's daughter. The actress is playing a warrior in the film and from her rugged and rough workout, we can definitely say that she is all set to win us over once again with her performance. Aamir Khan was interacting with media for his upcoming film Secret Superstar. According to the lead actor of the film, Aamir Khan, the heroines in the film don't have equal screen time.
