Mallika Said, “I had auditioned for the role of Aamir’s wife in Dangal. Aamir Khan and the film unit loved my auditions. But as my role would be a mother of 4 grown up girls, Aamir felt that regardless of whatever could be done; I might not look old enough to play a mother to four teenage daughters. That is the only reason why I did not get cast in the film”. Sakshi will be seen playing the role of Aamir Khan’s wife. Aamir will be seen playing the lead role of a wrestler.
