By now everybody knows about Aamir Khan’s fondness for his Dangal co-star Fatima Sana Shaikh. The actress who played his daughter in Dangal and is now cast as one of his leading ladies in Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs Of Hindostan is seen to share a warm rapport with her mentor.
Such is their camaraderie that the film’s other actress Katrina Kaif apparently has apprehensions about her own role. Says a source close to the project, “The heroines never had much to do in this plot. It was always Aamir Khan and Mr Bachchan’s film. Katrina Kaif decided to come on board because of her long-standing relationship with the makers. But now seeing the rapidly-developing friendship between Aamir and Fatima has Katrina somewhat perturbed.”
Apparently Katrina has met producer Aditya Chopra to express her misgivings. He has convinced Katrina that her role would not be tampered with. But knowing Aamir and his clout on the sets we wonder how much reason Katrina has to feel secure about her role in Thugs Of Hindostan. Kahin thug na le!
