Mumbai: Aamir Khan will be seen playing a father in his next film ‘Dangal’. While he has been prepping for the role, the casting team is having a tough time auditioning girls who can essay the role of his daughters. The team has been scouting and has auditioned more than 21,000 girls till now. However, they have not been able to sign anyone.
The girls need to be slightly athletic and willing to undergo strenuous training. The director of the film, Nitesh Tiwari is certain he does not want to cast someone from the industry. The casting has been going on since a couple of months. They are looking for fresh faces who have little or no former training in acting. So even when the team selects someone for auditioning, they have to give them time to prepare for the screen test, making the process even more challenging.
After breaking all box office records with P.K, Aamir does not have a release this year. However he seems to be gearing up for Dangal which will release in 2016. It is a very different role he will be seen playing and the casting team needs to ensure they get the casting right. Spokesperson confirms and shares, “We have been auditioning but have not been able to zero in on the casting yet.”
