Ever since Fatima Sana Shaikh made a smashing debut in popular sports drama Dangal, whispers have been doing the rounds that something is brewing between her and her co-actor Aamir Khan. When Fatima landed a second film, Thugs Of Hindostan, with Aamir Khan, the rumors intensified more and more.
Although Mr perfectionist Aamir Khan kept mum, Fatima came forward to explain their relationship. She felt it’s better to explain all these to media before it became an epidemic. Fatima is among the popular searched celebrity on google. She believes such rumors should be confronted before it’s too late.
Fatima admitted that she was really bothered by the link-up in an interview with a popular entertainment site. "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 actor 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 the rumors. “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.
On the work front, Fatima is currently shooting for Anurag Basu’s next, which is whispered to be the sequel of ‘Life In A Metro’.
