Yes, Aamir Khan is at it once again and all we hear of these days is Aamir dining with his Dangal discovery, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and following it up by sweating it out with – yet again – his “on screen” daughter.

Pretty sure, you all recognize Fatima by her first name, here are more interesting facts about the actress which might have found a fan in Aamir.

Dangal: Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan, is known to go the extra mile while preparing for all his roles, and with his latest, Dangal, he has taken perfection to a whole new level.
