Aamir, who is co-producing the film along with Siddharth Roy Kapur, has asked director Mahesh Mathai to take a look at Fatima’s work.

It seems that the link-up stories with his protégé Fatima Sana Shaikh aren’t upsetting Aamir Khan in any way. While the media is having a field day writing about every time the two are spotted together, or  about why Aamir is suggesting the actress’ name for his films, the actor merrily continues recommending her.

Even though there has been news that Priyanka Chopra has bagged the Rakesh Sharma biopic — supposedly called Salute, opposite Aamir Khan — it is learnt that Aamir has asked the makers to audition Fatima and then decide on the girl to be paired opposite him.

Aamir, who is co-producing the film along with Siddharth Roy Kapur, has asked director Mahesh Mathai to take a look at Fatima’s work.

Even though Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao did mention that Fatima was not cast in Thugs of Hindostan because of Aamir’s suggestion, trade sources say otherwise.

A trade insider says, “It is quite unusual that Aamir has been recommending Fatima, since he never repeats his heroines. Although Fatima was his daughter in Dangal, she will play his romantic interest in Thugs of Hindostan. It will be an interesting development if Fatima is cast in that film.”
