Fatima Sana Shaikh


Fatima Sana Shaikh shot to fame after playing a sportswoman in Aamir Khan’s Dangal (2016). After the thunderous success of the film on home turf and overseas, we thought the actress would be seen everywhere. Much to our chagrin, nothing of that sort happened and the actress kept struggling for good films.

Fatima Sana Shaikh was last seen in Yash Raj Films’ mega-budgeted period drama Thugs of Hindostan which released on Diwali 2018. In spite of starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan as male leads, the Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial fell flat at the box-office, incurring heavy losses to the makers. In 2019, Fatima had no release. However, 2020 is going to be a busy year for her in terms of work.
