New Delhi: Superstar Aamir Khan has started shooting for his next ‘Dangal'. Not long ago the Mr. Perfectionist of B-town, who has undergone many changes to give a seamless performance for this movie, took to Twitter to announce he would begin shooting.

Now we know that TV and film actress Sakshi Tanwar will be playing the role of Aamir's wife in the movie, but she wasn't the first choice. They were speculations that actress Mallika Sherawat would perform the role of superstar's wife on screen.

Sadly, Mallika who is known for her bold avatars couldn't be a part of the movie.

At her recent media interaction, Mallika broke her silence on the matter.

“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,” she clarified.
