Fatima Sana Shaikh responds to rumours of an affair with Aamir Khan
Bollywood actress Fatima Sana Shaikh responded to rumours of her having an affair with her Thugs of Hindostan co-star Aamir Khan, saying that she felt disturbed by the speculations at times.
In an interview with Filmfare, Fatima said that she felt worried about the rumours because she had never dealt with speculations such as these on such a large scale.
“A bunch of strangers that I had never met were writing things about me,” she said. “They don’t even know if there’s any truth to it,” he added.
Fatima said that she felt disturbed because people who read such stories about her assumed that she was ‘not a nice person’.
“You feel like telling that person, ‘Ask me, I’ll give you an answer’. 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),” she said.
She said that she’s learnt to ignore the rumours now but at times, she does get affected by them.
A couple of months earlier, she had addressed the rumours in an interview with Bollywood Hungama.
“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,” she had said back then.
She has starred in not one but two movies with Aamir Khan, Dangal and Thugs of Hindostan.
