Actor Fatima Sana Shaikh says that people writing about her link-up rumours with actor Aamir Khan know nothing about her life and although it doesn’t affect her a lot, they are not right. She was talking in her latest interview with an entertainment portal when she opened up on the rumours.

Fatima, who has worked with Aamir in two films-Dangal and Thugs of Hindostan, said that such rumours make people assume wrong things about her. She said people think she’s a bad person and that’s something that affects her sometimes. She said, “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’. ”

She added, “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.”

Fatima also mentioned that when such allegations are made against someone, the person immediately feels a need to speak up and give a clarification. She said, “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.”

On the work front, the actor is reportedly a part of Saare Jahan Se Achcha, a biopic on the life of astronaut Rakesh Sharma. The official announcement about the cast is yet to be made but speculations are rife that Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh will be seen in important roles in the film.
