Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh hit it off when they worked together in Dangal (2016). The actress went on to intern with Aamir Khan Productions, later to bag a role in Thugs Of Hindostan that stars the Mr Perfectionist along with Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. It is a biggie for Fatima and she has her mentor and co-star Aamir Khan to thank for this opportunity of a lifetime to work with a banner as aspired as the Yash Raj Films.
And she is being prepped well. We know that Aamir has taken Fatima under his wings and it looks like he is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that his conviction and confidence in the actress doesn’t fall flat when the films releases around Diwali 2018. For the same, it looks like the Khan is also overseeing her physical training for Thugs. Fatima has been working out in the gym quite religiously and she often treats fans with videos that act as the perfect motivation.

Talking about Thugs and Aamir’s other heroine in the film, there were reports that the actor was not impressed with a few action scenes starring the Tiger Zinda Hai actress and therefore asked for these to be reshot. However, in an official statement, YRF refuted the reports and said that no scene is being reshot with Katrina or anyone else and that this was just a baseless rumour.
