Aamir Khan‘s growing proximity to his Dangal co-star Fatima Sana Shaikh is now a known fact. The young actress who made her debut in Bollywood as Aamir Khan’s elder daughter, Geeta Phogat, is one of his leading ladies in Vijay Krishna Acharya and Yash Raj Film’s Thugs of Hindostan. Now rumour has it that Fatima’s growing closeness to her mentor, Aamir, is making the film’s other leading lady, Katrina Kaif, extremely insecure. She is reportedly vary of how her role will pan out and if it will receive enough limelight.
Deccan Chronicle, quoted a source close to the project as saying, “The heroines never had much to do in this plot. It was always Aamir Khan and Mr. Bachchan’s film. Katrina decided to come on board because of her longstanding relationship with Yash Raj Films and Aditya Chopra. But seeing the rapidly-developing friendship between Aamir and Fatima, Katrina is somewhat perturbed.”
The leading daily further reported that Katrina’s growing insecurity led her to meet Aditya to express her qualms in this regard. Seeing her growing concerns, Aditya Chopra reportedly assured her that her role in the film will not be tampered under any circumstance. However, being well aware of Mr Perfectionist’s influence on the set, there’s a looming doubt over whether Katrina could truly be at peace with this situation. The film that stars Aamir, Fatima, Katrina and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead, is slated for a Diwali release. There’s a buzz doing the rounds that the film could clash with Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar starrer, sci-fi film, titled 2.0, and needless to say that it has Khan worried.
