Now, Mallika finally broke her silence over the issue and was quoted as saying, "I had auditioned for the role of Aamir's wife in 'Dangal'. Aamir Khan and the film unit loved my auditions. But as my role would be a mother of 4 grown up girls, Aamir felt that regardless of whatever could be done; I might not look old enough to play a mother to four teenage daughters. That is the only reason why I did not get cast in the film."

The actress was reportedly spotted performing Ganesh aarti at Ranjit studios. 

'Dangal' is based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat along with Sakshi, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Rajkummar Rao. The film will release next year.
