Fatima Shaikh impressed everyone with her spectacular performance with her fierce character of Geeta Phogat in Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’, which broke all the records at the Box-office. Fatima Shaikh, in no time, became the talk of the town and gained huge fan following.
Fatima Shaikh is once again ready to create magic on-screen with her upcoming movie “Thugs of Hindostan” with Aamir Khan, the movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif.
A few months ago, Fatima Shaikh’s Instagram post created a rumor that she is preparing for her role in Aamir Khan’s dream project on ‘Mahabharata’. But it’s been two years to Dangal and Fatima hasn’t been casted by any other filmmaker.
If reports are to be believed than Fatima has been approaching production houses but she is facing rejections everywhere. It is her closeness with Aamir Khan which has now became a hurdle in her way to success, according to some media reports.
“Fatima (Sana Shaikh) is Aamir Khan’s find. She has approached many production houses, but they all refuse to cast her saying that she is an Aamir Khan product. So she cannot find work beyond Aamir Khan films.”
Last year, the media was speculating reasons behind their closeness as the two were spotted together on a few occasions.
In fact, Fatima Shaikh’s name was suggested by Aamir Khan for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ to YRF. ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is the only film she has got after ‘Dangal’.
Despite giving a spectacular performance and being a talented new-comer, we really wonder what why filmmakers are not casting her in their movies.
