Though her last film Thugs of Hindostan (2018) did not set the box-office on fire and turned out to be a money-losing affair for the makers, actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has some interesting projects in hand to look forward to. After wrapping up renowned filmmaker Anurag Basu’s next film with Rajkummar Rao, the actress is now gearing up to begin work on her next.
Fatima next stars in a horror-comedy titled Bhoot Police. To be directed by Pavan Kirpalani, who has previously helmed critically acclaimed psychological thriller Phobia (2016), Bhoot Police also features Saif Ali Khan and Ali Fazal in lead roles. It is the first time when Fatima Sana Shaikh will share the screen space with Saif Ali Khan and Ali Fazal.
The actress is really psyched up about commencing the first schedule of the film in coming few days. “I am very excited to kick-start the shoot for Bhoot Police. It will be my first horror-comedy, so there will be a lot of learning that will happen on the job. I like this genre personally, and there is so much yet to be explored in this space in terms of filming horror cinema.”
Though Fatima Sana Shaikh is a fan of horror and horror-comedy movies, she does not prefer watching them alone. “I really enjoy watching horror and horror-comedy films but not alone. I get too scared to watch it alone. It is really fun to watch it with friends and family. The entire experience of watching a horror film in a theatre, with great sound and other effects is something else altogether.”
