When it was announced that Fatima Sana Shaikh was roped in for Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs of Hindostan, speculations started doing the rounds that Aamir Khan would be ‘romancing’ the actress in the film. After having watched Dangal, the thought was almost revolting given that Fatima essayed the role of his daughter in the movie. However, soon it was revealed that Aamir would be paired opposite Katrina Kaif and the idea settled. But if recent reports are to be believed, Aamir and Fatima are likely to come together in Rakesh Sharma biopic titled ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha’, and the idea of the two romancing each other has resurfaced again.

According to a source, quoted by Bollywood Life, “Fatima has been finalised for Saare Jahan Se Achcha and she will essay the role of Aamir’s wife in the film. Aamir has asked Fatima to grow her hair back after Thugs and she will start prepping for her role soon after she completes the YRF film.” (ALSO READ:Himesh Reshammiya to marry girlfriend Sonia Kapoor post divorce with Komal?)

It remains to be seen how the fans are likely to process the idea of the 52-year old actor dating his on screen daughter. But trust Aamir to tread uncharted territories and break images as effortlessly as he has done before and this otherwise repugnant notion may cease to exist. Perhaps once we watch Thugs of Hindostan we will be more accepting of Fatima making the on screen transition from a daughter to wife. Reports indicate that the movie will be produced by Aamir Khan Productions Pvt Ltd together with RSVP and Roy films as the actor wants to bring the movie to reality as per his vision.

As of now, both the actors are entirely focused on their immediate project, Thugs of Hindostan. Fatima was in news recently for being trolled for posting monokini pictures during Ramadan.
