Did you know Dangal actress Fatima Sana Shaikh was a part of this TV serial?
Fatima Sana Shaikh rose to fame after Dangal. She starred alongside Amir Khan in the blockbuster and made a name for herself. She played the role of wrestler Geeta Phogat, who aspires to complete her father’s dream of winning a gold medal in the sport at the Olympics.
Fatima has 1.3 Million followers on Instagram and has garnered the attention of the youth. Although she is just a newbie, brands and movie producers have been lining up to sign her for their projects. In a recent ad campaign for Kit Kat, Fatima and her Dangal Co-star Sanya Malhotra were seen dancing in the streets of Europe.
While we may have come to know this gorgeous actress after Dangal, who florished in sucess after the movie was released. She previously worked as an child actress and also made a small appearance in Akaash Vani. Our girl Fatima is no stranger to struggle, she was just like the millions that have a dream of making it big in the industry and struggled to get roles as an actress. Before making her debut in Bollywood, Fatima tried a hand in Indian Television industry. She played the charecter of Suman in the serial ‘Agle Janam Mujhe Bitiya Hi Kijo’. Her role was small and she didn’t seem to catch the interest of the audience and was written off the show.
While the small screen had not appreciated the diamond she was in making, Amir Khan sure did! When he cast her in Dangal and then yet again in Thugs Of Hindustan, a mega budget Bollywood movie with a big starcast. In her second movie, Fatima will be playing the role of rebel against the British Empire. She will be playing the role of a badass archer! With Fatima’s intense acting and the glimpse of her charecter in the trailer, we can definately say that she will do justice to the role!
Thugs of Hindustan stars, Amir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, John Clive and Ofcourse our Dangal girl, Fatima! We can’t wait for her to leave us speechless, yet again!
