Mumbai: The fact that Aamir Khan has taken Fatima Sana Shaikh under his wings since their last glorious outing, ‘Dangal’, together, is no secret. And now, the actress has joined Aamir Khan’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan.

This Yash Raj Films’ next production is written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who confirmed the news.

Vijay told a daily, “The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of the action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”

Before locking Fatima’s name for the film, many other actress were considered for the role. Speculation have been rife about Befikre star Vaani Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor’s names being tossed around as possible candidates for the film. However, a photograph of Fatima Sana Shaikh holding a sword was recently leaked, creating quite a stir in the industry.

It was rumoured that Aamir had suggested Fatima’s name to Aditya Chopra for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ and was very keen to rope her in to star opposite him in the film.

For the second time Vijay Krishna Acharya (Victor) will be directing Aamir Khan after ‘Dhoom 3’. ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ will go on floors on June 1 and is expected to release around Diwali in 2018.
