Dangal movie is finally ready with its leading cast. After finalising Aamir Khan for the role, Sakshi Tanwar has been finalised as the leading lady of the movie, who will be playing the role of Aamir’s wife. Earlier, sensuous actress Mallika Sherawat had been finalised for the role but due to certain reasons she had to give up on the movie. The actress has long been missing from the silver screen of Bollywood since a long time. She was supposed to be cast opposite Aamir Khan in the film Dangal but circumstances went against her. The actress was almost finalised in for the role which is now being played by Sakshi Tanwar. Well oodles of reasons are being speculated, the main reason behind this replacement is that Aamir Khan did not think Mallika fitted in the shoes of a mother.
The actor is attached to this movie and wants it to be one of his best movies. He wants the movie to be as realistic as possible and hence was of the opinion that Mallika did not look of the appropriate age that is required for the character. The role opposite Aamir requires the look of a mother so much old that she looks like a mother to four girls, and indeed Mallika looked too young to fit in those shoes.
The actor was of the opinion that the character opposite him in the movie Dangal requires a realistic approach and that no matter what changes the makers do to her look she would not look old. Sakshi was then stepped in because the makers felt that no matter what she would rather be a misfit in terms of character. Consequently, the role eventually went to television actress Sakshi Tanwar. Sakshi Tanwar was the best fit for Dangal movie female lead as she is a household name in the television industry and has acted in famous serials like Bade Achhe Lagte Hain and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki. The first poster of the film has already been released and has made its way to the social networking sites. The teaser poster received mixed responses from the audience. Dangal is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and the movie is a biographical one based on the life of veteran coach and wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.
Aamir Khan will be leading the film and will be seen playing the main protagonist. Dangal features some fresh faces in the form of Fatima Shaikh, Zaira Wasim, Suhani Bhatnagar and Sanya Malhotra who will be playing Aamir’s daughters.
