Dangal star Fatima Sana Sheikh recently made it to the headlines after it was confirmed that not Deepika Padukone, Vaani Kapoor and Alia Bhatt but she will play the lead role in Thugs Of Hindostan. Soon the internet was abuzz with the news that Fatima bagged the role because of her mentor Aamir Khan.
In fact, it was also being said that Aamir Khan was quite keen to have Fatima Sana Sheikh on board as his heroine in Thugs of Hindostan. But it looks like Fatima is really miffed with all these rumours and said that Aamir is not the kind of person to push anybody.
“He is not that kind of a person… He doesn’t push for anybody. He doesn’t get involved in all of this. He is a director’s actor and remains focussed. That’s how I know him, and that’s how I see him. I don’t know where all this is coming from,” Fatima told IANS over the phone from Mumbai.
In Thugs of Hindostan, she is not just getting a chance to share screen space with Aamir again, but will also be seen with Amitabh Bachchan. “Amitabh sir is a legend. He had sent me a letter and bouquet after ‘Dangal’ and I never thought I will get to do a film with him. I am very happy,” she said.
The fact that she will be caught amidst two perfectionists — Aamir and producer Aditya Chopra — how will she deal with that? “Actually, Adi sir is very sweet. He is a great producer, very sensitive and compassionate. Even the director Vijay Krishna Acharya (of ‘Dhoom’ fame) is very good. I have seen his films, he really enjoys the process of filming, understands you and gets the best out of you. I feel fortunate to be working with such creative and intelligent people.”
