The 51-year-old star says the film’s director Nitesh Tiwari was impressed with Sakshi’s test following which she became a part of the project.
“My mother watches television serials and she loves Sakshi. I told Nitesh (Tiwari) to try her (Sakshi for the role of my wife in Dangal). Nitesh liked the test and that’s how she came on board. She is fantastic and unbelievable. She gives the best shot in just one take,” Aamir told reporters here.
“She is skilled, she feels the emotions while doing the scene. I found it rare in an actor. I was struggling and she was all OK. I was taking seven-eight takes and she used to do things in one take. She is such a joy to work with,” the Dhoom 3 actor said.
Sakshi has become a household name with her performances in daily soaps like Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki and Bade Aache Lagte Hai.
