Aamir had visited her house to console her grieving parents.

Following Suhani Bhatnagar’s untimely death, Aamir Khan reportedly met up with her parents.

Aamir co-starred with Suhani in Dangal (2016). He played her father in the film.

Suhani featured as the young version of Babita Phogat.

Suhani’s uncle Navneet Bhatnagar apparently confirmed that Aamir had visited her house to console her grieving parents.

In an interview, Suhani’s mother stated that even after the release of Dangal, Aamir Khan had always kept in touch with Suhani.

However, she emphasised that the Laal Singh Chaddha star was not aware of Suhani’s illness:

“Aamir Sir has always been in touch with her. He is a nice person.

“We never shared this with him. We didn’t inform anyone. We were so disturbed by this.

“If we had messaged him, he would have immediately been there for us.

“Even during his daughter’s wedding, he invited us. And in fact, he called us to be a part of his big day.”

Suhani Bhatnagar died aged 19 on February 16, 2024.

The cause of her death was attributed to dermatomyositis – a rare inflammation disease.

Her mother had previously spoken proudly about her daughter.

She said: “She was performing very well in college, she even topped in the last semester.

“She was brilliant in everything and wanted to excel in whatever she wanted to do.

“Our daughter has made us very proud. She was camera-friendly from a young age.

“Currently, she was pursuing a course in Mass Communication and Journalism and was in her second year.

“She wanted to complete her studies and then work in films.”

In Dangal, Zaira Wasim also featured as the young Geeta Phogat, while Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra took on the respective roles of the older Geeta and Babita.

Prior to the release of the film, Aamir Khan unabashedly said that the four actresses had performed better than he did in the movie.

He had said: “If I have to rate our performance in the film, I would say that these kids performed ten times better than what I did.

“No, I am not exaggerating anything.

“Once the film releases, the audience will understand.

“I have been working in the industry for last 25 years, but these kids are highly talented.

“After deciding to make the film, I and Nitesh [Tiwari] were sure about the fact that if we cannot cast the right kid, we would not make the film.

“The major part of the film is dependent on their performance.”

“It was not acting, but physical fitness for wrestling. I learnt a lot of pranks from these kids.

“I always believe that I am yet to grow up, and still a child from within.

“Working with these kids made me enjoy that.”

The Aamir Khan Productions X account tweeted that they were “deeply saddened” about Suhani’s death.

On the work front, Aamir Khan is currently gearing up for his production Laapataa Ladies, scheduled to be released on March 1, 2024.

He also has Lahore, 1947 on the floors.
