After speculations that she would be acting in Yash Raj Films’ ‘Sultan’ (2016), rumour now has it that Mrunal Thakur, a popular television actress, will be seen in Aamir Khan starrer ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’.
A source told DNA, “None of this is true. Aamir was keen to have Alia Bhatt paired opposite him, but she doesn’t have dates till next year and Adi and Aamir want to start the film by early 2017. Then, Adi wanted to sign his blue-eyed girl Vaani Kapoor instead, but Aamir wasn’t too keen. He felt a completely fresh face would be better. Kumkum Bhagya actress Mrunal Thakur is being considered for the role and has undergone a look test already.”
The film is being produced by YRF and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Also starring Amitabh Bachchan, it is slated for a Diwali 2018 release.
