Mumbai: Fatima Sana Shaikh, of ‘Dangal’ fame, was rumoured to be the first choice of ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ makers and was approached to star opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in the film.

In fact, a popular daily was informed by a source, “The makers of Chanda Mama Door Ke have been hunting for a leading lady, and they’re keen on casting Fatima for this film. Right now, nothing is on paper, so one can’t confirm anything about this.

Fatima, on the other hand, refused to comment on it, saying, “I’m sorry, I can’t talk about it. I can’t say anything right now.”

Now that another rumour, of her starring alongside Amitabh Bachchan and her ‘Dangal’ father Aamir Khan in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, is confirmed. A tabloid claims that the real reason behind Fatima not doing ‘Chanda Mama…’ is her desire to star in the multi-starrer Aamir Khan film.

Recently, Aamir Khan took to Twitter to welcome Katrina Kaif to the world of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. The filming will start from June 1 and is slated to release on Diwali next year.
