There were several speculations about who will play the female lead in Aamir Khan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan. However, after various actresses were rumored to be a part of the project, the makers have locked Shraddha Kapoor to play the lead.
A source revealed, “Shraddha did a look test for a role opposite Aamir a month ago and everyone loved it — producer Aditya Chopra, Aamir Khan as well as director Vijay Krishna ‘Victor’ Acharya. It was a unanimous decision to sign Shraddha.”
The source further added, “The period love story is an Indian adaptation of Philip Meadows Taylor’s novel Confessions Of A Thug, set in India in 1832. Shraddha plays Aamir’s romantic interest and later, wife in the film.”
But the YRF spokesperson said, “Shraddha has not signed the film.”
