The female lead is the popular soap actress Sakshi Tanwar. This is the first time she has been cast opposite Aamir.
CityLights-fame Rajkummar Rao has also been approached for a supporting role, while Vivan Bhatena essays a negative character in the film.
There have been conjectures that the release of Dangal would be postponed till 2017, as Aamir is worried that the early release of Salman Khan’s Sultan may overshadow the film.
However, a source from the team has confirmed: “Dangal is definitely releasing this Christmas. There are no plans to shift its release.”
For now, Dangal is planned for release December 23, 2016.
