Fatima Sana Shaikh who impressed everyone with her portrayal of Geeta Phogat was last seen in her debut film, Dangal. Now, after two years of her debut movie, Fatima is once again working with Aamir Khan in ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’.
Fatima Sana Shaikh has been approaching production houses to work with them, but the actress has been facing rejection.
According to reports, her closeness with Aamir Khan is being cited as the reason why production houses are hesitating offering work to the young star.
"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," a source was quoted as saying by a leading daily.
Aamir suggested Fatima’s name for ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’, which is a YRF venture. Some reports state that it was only because of Fatima’s closeness to Aamir. Alas, this closeness got her nowhere beyond Aamir Khan films, which collaborates on only one movie per year. As they say, luck doesn’t usually favour all.
Meanwhile, Fatima, who is very active on social media, had recently shared a picture of the epic Mahabharata placed on a coffee table which made everyone wonder whether she was hinting at Aamir's dream project Mahabharata.
On the professional front, Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh are currently shooting for Thugs Of Hindostan along with Amitabh Bachchan. The movie, which also stars Katrina Kaif in lead role, is slated to hit the theatres during Diwali 2018.
Meanwhile, Fatima’s co-star Sanya Malhotra too has bagged ‘Badhai Ho’ with Ayushmann Khurrana.
