Fatima Sana Sheikh, the Dangal girl has made a bang on debut in Bollywood alongside Perfectionist, Aamir Khan in Nitesh Tiwari’s sports drama Dangal. Since then Fatima Sana is unstoppable and went on to grab her second movie once again with Aamir in Thugs Of Hindostan which doesn’t go well with the audience as well as critics. This movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif in lead roles.
Amid her career’s making highs, her link-up rumours with Aamir is getting strong and everyone seems to talk about it. With her second project with TOH star, these rumours of her love-affair with Aamir buzzed around the internet more strongly.
In an interview with a leading daily, Fatima admitted that she was really bothered by the link-up. “It’s very weird. My mother keeps on watching TV and the other day she showed me ‘Your photo has come’ and I was like ‘Read the headline to know what’s written.’ I used to get disturbed and I felt like I should explain myself,” she said.
The actress added, “If someone accuses you of something, the first instinct is to come out and tell, ‘Listen, why do you think it is like this?’ If you are an aggressive person, you will attack. If you are a submissive person, even then you will talk about it.”
However, Fatima is no longer affected by such rumours. “Now, I do not feel the need to explain because I feel no matter what you do, people will talk about you. ‘Logo ka kaam hai bolna woh bolenge.’ No point getting affected by it. People, who write these things, are the people who will meet me nicely. I know it’s their job but I hope they sleep well,” she said.
Talking about her work front, Fatima is currently shooting for an untitled saga of Anurag Basu’s next, which is said to be the sequel of Life In A Metro.
