Recently, when she was asked about her birthday plans and surprises she shared, “As a kid, I used to eagerly wait for surprises. But, now, I just don’t want anyone to give me any surprises. I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better way to celebrate my birthday. The greatest gift that an actor can ever get is he or she is getting work. I want to work and I’m happy doing that.”

Furthermor­e, she adds, “I want to be on a film set every day of my life. I just want to keep getting more and more work” she shares her Birthday wish. Fatima’s next project is Bhoot Police, which is a horrorcome­dy where the actress is experiment­ing with the genre and trying her hands exploring her craft. For Bhoot Police,

Fatima will be seen alongside Saif Ali Khan and Ali Fazal.

Fatima Sana Shaikh debuted as a child artist through Chachi 420 (1997) and reentered in Bollywood by her amazing character as Geeta Phogat in Dangal. She crafted herself as the character and got a lot of appreciati­on from the critics and audience.

Now, in the recently announced film,

Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari, the actress is teaming up with Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh for the family comedy. Suraj Pe

Mangal Bhari is a unique family comedy that draws humour from the quirks of its refreshing yet relatable characters. The world is set in the innocence of the 1990s when there were no social media or mobile phones.

The actress has been signed to be the first-ever female brand ambassador for a leading automobile brand as well. Slipping into characters that were mentally as well as physically demanding, Fatima has exhibited immense perseveran­ce and dedication for all her films.
