Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh biggest break in Bollywood came with one of Bollywood’s biggest hit movies ‘Dangal’. The young actress shared screen space with debutant Saniya Malhotra and Aamir Khan in the movie.

The young actress once again shared screen space with Aamir Khan in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. This sparked the reports of an affair between the duo.

In her recent interview with Filmfare magazine, Fatima Sana Shaikh addressed the rumours of her affair with Aamir Khan. The actress said that the rumours bothered her and she was dejected by the constant speculations in the media.

“Earlier, I used to get affected. I’d feel bad. Because I’ve never dealt with anything of this sort at such a big level. A bunch of strangers, whom I’ve never met, are writing things about me. They don’t even know if there’s any truth to it. People reading it assume that I’m ‘not a good person’. You feel like telling that person, ‘Ask me, I’ll give you an answer’. It disturbs me because I don’t want people to assume wrong things. Agar main asliyat mein haraami hoon toh people should see my asliyat (If I am a bad person in reality then people should see my reality). But If I’m not, I don’t want them to see me as a bad person. But I’ve learnt to ignore it. Yet, there are some days when I do get affected,” she said in the interview.

This isn’t the first time that Fatima has spoken about the issue. In December, Bollywood Hungama asked about the rumours as well. 

“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 had said. 

Fatima Sana Shaikh will next be seen in Anurag Basu’s untitled anthology film. The actress will share screen space with Rajkummar Rao in the movie.
