Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh’s last film, Thugs of Hindostan, failed to impress at the Box Office. The big YRF film, starring Aamir Khan in the lead, was her second Hindi film. Notably, her first Hindi film, Dangal, too featured Aamir in the lead. This lead to the speculations of a link-up between Aamir and Fatima. Now, the actress has finally talked about the rumours.

In her latest interview with Bollywood Hungama, the actress talked about why such rumours mean nothing to her and her equation with AK is too-special-to-be bogged down by such frivolous things. She revealed she got to know about the existence of these speculations when her mother was watching TV and a news flash on her name came on-screen.

Fatima said, “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. 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. But, 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”. She added, “Aparshakti (Khurranna) and AK are just too special to me. Why should I get affected by it?”

On the work front, Fatima hasn’t yet announced any new project. Her performance in Dangal, which was released in 2016, won her many accolades, including many awards for the best female debut. It would be interesting to see what next does she get on her list!
