Soon after the release of ‘Dangal’ and amid much conjectures, Fatima went on to bag another mega project starring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. Produced by Yash Raj Films, the movie has been titled, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.
The whole team of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ had tried their best to keep their look for the movie, a secret. But, unluckily, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s look was leaked within a few days after the movie started rolling, which caused quite a furor on social media. Even Fatima’s look could not be kept a secret for too long. The movie will also feature Katrina Kaif in a never-seen-before look. A source has disclosed that Fatima’s role in the film is crucial to the plot.
Speaking about the experience of working in this movie, Fatima told that she feels lucky to have worked with Amitabh Bachchan and twice with Aamir Khan. Speaking to a tabloid, Shaikh added that director Vijay Krishna Acharya helped her improve her act and made things quite easy for her.
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya had revealed, “The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of the action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”
