Aamir Khan to launch two new faces after eight years

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Productions is all set to launch new talent after eight-long years, with 'Dangal'- Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra.

The duo will be essaying Geeta and Babita Phogat, the 51-year-old actor's on-screen daughters, in the sports drama.

Both the girls were chosen after auditioning 10,000 girls in India.

Having to play the role of an international wrestler, Fatima and Sanya went through a grueling training of two years.

They were trained by National wrestling coach Kripa Shankar. Their moves had to look authentic and they were made to follow the same regimes as the real Geeta and Babita Phogat in order to look like professional wrestlers.

They also suffered a few injuries during the training process, but their dedication never let them give up.

They have also been interning with Aamir and learning film making as well.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, 'Dangal' is based on the life of Haryana-based wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and the journey of his daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat.
