"Aamir is keen on casting Alia, as he considers her to be a far more established actress in the current lot, but nothing has been finalised yet," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying.

However, there has not been any official confirmation on the female lead of the movie as of now. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is slated to be released on Diwali 2018.
