Fatima Sana Shaikh made a remarkable debut in Nitesh Tiwari's sports drama Dangal. Whispers have been doing the rounds that something is brewing between her and her co-star Aamir Khan. When Fatima landed in 'Thugs Of Hindostan', with Aamir, the rumors intensified.
Fatima admitted that she was really bothered by the link-up in an interview with an entertainment website. She said, "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.”
"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,” she added.
As of now, Fatima is no longer affected by the rumors. She said, "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.”
On the work front, Fatima is currently working with Anurag Basu for his next film, which is rumored to be the sequel of 'Life In A Metro'.
