“My mother watches television serials and she loves Sakshi. I told Nitesh to try Sakshi for the role of my wife in Dangal.
She gives the best shot in just one take,” said Aamir.“She (Sakshi) is skilled, she feels the emotions while doing the scene. I found it rare in an actor. I was struggling and she was all Ok.” said Aamir.
The film features Fatima Shaikh as Geeta Phogat, Sanya Malhotra as Babita Kumari, daughters of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, essayed by Aamir.
Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar will play younger versions of the daughters.“It was outstanding working with all four girls. They were unbelievable. These girls are new but were effortless.
I was amazed as I am (in the) industry for over 25 years. I am proud of them. These young actors are very focused and talented”. They learnt wrestling and even got the dialect right” said Aamir.
