Mumbai, March 4 -- A few months back, it was reported that Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is preparing to play a wrestler in an upcoming project. The film is rumoured to be a biopic on acclaimed wrestler Mahavir Phogat, who trained his three daughters and one niece in wrestling.
The makers are currently in the process of casting actresses for the roles of the daughters and the niece. As a result, there has been a lot of speculation with regards to who has been approached.
Initially, Kangana Ranaut and Taapsee Pannu made news in this concern. Now, rumour has it that Akshara Haasan is being considered for the same. "Aamir and Kangana were spotted together a few times in the recent past, leading to the assumption that they are working together. But Kangana denied the news recently," says a source. Taapsee, too, said she had not been approached for the alleged biopic.
According to the source, rumours of Akshara's involvement in this film started when her Wikipedia page mentioned that her next project is with Aamir Khan. "But the details are no longer visible on the page and have clearly been edited," adds the insider.
Meanwhile, Akshara also denies being approached for this movie. When we contacted her, she said, "No, I am not part of the film. I haven't had any discussions about it."
