Fatima Sana Shaikh, who has collaborated with Aamir Khan in Dangal and this year’s Thugs of Hindostan among others has often been linked to the Bollywood actor. She has finally responded to rumours of their link-up.
In an interview with an entertainment website, Fatima admitted that she was really bothered by the link-up. “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.
Fatima said that how one chooses to handle situations such as this stems from their personality. “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 said.
However, Fatima is no longer affected by the rumours. “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.
Fatima has worked with Aamir on two films. Their first, the sports drama Dangal, was a box office success, going on to make more than Rs 2000 crore worldwide and becoming the most successful Bollywood film ever. Their second film, this year’s historical action-adventure Thugs of Hindostan, is considered one of the biggest commercial disappointments of 2018. The film is touted to be the most expensive Hindi film ever made – it has a reported budget of Rs 335 crore – but has made only Rs 260 crore. Fatima at a recent event called the film’s box office and critical failure ‘heartbreaking’.

The Dangal actress has also been linked with her Dangal co-star Aparshakti Khurana. Talking about her equation with both Aamir and him, she said, “Aparshakti and AK are just too special to me. Why should I get affected by it?
