Aamir Khan's sister Nikhat Khan to star in Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar's Saand Ki Aankh
After a month long grueling schedule in the villages near Uttar Pradesh, Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu wrapped up work of their next film Saand Ki Aankh.
The film, that's based on the lives of octogenarian sharp shooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, is co-produced by Anurag Kashyap. The film recently had a wrap-up party in Mumbai. The entire cast and crew were present to celebrate the occasion.
While Mukkabaaz fame Vineet Kumar Singh plays a titular character in the drama flick, the cast has an interesting addition that not many know about.
A source from the team reveals, "Along with the character of the shooter dadis, there are several roles that are integral to the film's plotline. One will be essayed by Aamir Khan's sister Nikhat Khan. This will be her debut in films and although not many knew of her, when one of the makers met her and suggested her name, the entire team knew she was best suited for the role."
What's the role? "She plays a maharani in the film. It's not a cameo or an appearance. Instead, it's a full fledged role. Her character has some really important sequences," adds our source.
Saand Ki Aankh released two posters featuring the firebrand female leads and announced their release date. The movie will hit screens on October 25 this year.
