Fatima to join Aamir on screen


THERE has been a buzz that superstar Aamir Khan was quite keen to have Fatima Sana Sheikh – his on screen daughter from Dangal – on board as his heroine in Thugs of Hindostan. But the actress says he is not pushy.

“He is not that kind of 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 said 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 sent me a letter and bouquet after Dangal and I never thought I would 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 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,” said Fatima, who played Geeta Phogat in Dangal. – IANS
