Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif had been the center of attraction of 2013’s blockbuster Dhoom 3. Their sizzling chemistry was one of the many reasons that got the crowd to the theaters. Seems like Aditya Chopra is planning to recreate the same kind of magic with his latest mega offering Thugs Of Hindostan!
Yes, you read that right! contrary to all the speculations that Fatima Sana Shaikh will be romancing her on-screen daddy from Dangal Aamir Khan(a piece of news which made us a little uncomfortable), it will be Katrina Kaif who Aamir Khan will fall in love with!
A source close to the affair revealed “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’’
After hearing what the grapevine was speculating, an upset Fatima Sana Sheikh stated “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.”
