Actor Aamir Khan seems to have decided to become a mentor to his Dangal daughter Fatima Sana Shaikh. After Dangal and Thugs of Hindostan, it has been reported that the duo will now collaborate for the third time in Rakesh Sharma's biopic titled Saare Jahan Se Achcha.

The interesting part is after playing Aamir's daughter, Fatima will now play his wife. Yes, you heard it right! Fatima and Aamir will romance on-screen, Bollywood Life reported.

"Fatima has been finalised for Saare Jahan Se Achcha and she will essay the role of Aamir's wife in the film," a source told the entertainment portal, "Aamir has asked Fatima to grow her hair back after Thugs and she will start prepping for her role soon after she completes the YRF film."

Meanwhile, Fatima and Aamir are shooting for Thugs of Hindostan, which will also feature Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. Earlier, there were reports that Aamir and Fatima have an affair and thus, the former is helping her to build up her movie career.

However, Aamir's wife Kiran Rao later smashed all such rumours by defending Fatima. When asked if Aamir recommended Fatima, Kiran clarified by saying that the Dangal actress was cast purely on basis of merit.

"We don't deal with casting. Aamir, Adi and Victor decided the casting so they must have given it a good thought because it's a big film. There has to be merit or else they wouldn't take a risk with such a big film," Deccan Chronicle had quoted her as saying.
