Fatima Sana Shaikh

Fatima Sana Shaikh will be seen next in Anurag Basu’s directorial Ludo alongside Rajkummar Rao.  It has been a much-awaited film where the actress will be seen in a never seen avatar wearing Saree on screen for the first time.

Talking about working with the leading duo Fatima and Rajkummar Anurag shared, “Everybody is different, yaar. Till the time I hadn’t worked with Sana and Rajkummar, I thought that Ranbir (Kapoor) achha hai, because I was working with him and I did not know about them. I did two films with him and at that time, I thought there is no better actor than him. Then I understood that Sana and Rajkummar’s approach is also different and amazing. This generation is different, everyone is so confident about their craft.

The next project is “Bhoot Police” which is a horror-comedy where the actress is experimenting with the genre and trying her hands exploring her craft. For Bhoot Police, Fatima will be seen alongside Saif Ali Khan and Ali Fazal.

Now, the recently announced film ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’, the actress is teaming up with Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh for the family comedy. ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’ is a unique family comedy that draws humour from the quirks of its refreshing yet relatable characters. The world is set in the innocence of 1990s when there was no social media or mobile phones.

The actress enjoys a huge fan base amongst the interiors of India, as well as the metropolitan cities, has been signed to be the first-ever female brand ambassador for a leading automobile brand as well.

Slipping into characters that were mentally as well as physically demanding, Fatima has exhibited immense perseverance and dedication for all her films

There’s no doubt that Sanjay Dutt is one of the finest, experienced and talented actors of the industry. The actor has worked in many films and has also made the audiences feel emotions of the character on screen- be it love, laughter and not forgetting, the terror that he brings with his characters.

Fans have always done sweet gestures in order to shower their love for the actor in various ways. But this one fan crossing all the boundaries of love and craze left all the money in her account and bank locker left, for the actor after she died. It came as a shock and surprise to the actor for having a fan who loved him so dearly. Nobody has ever done like this for any actor and Sanjay is the first one to be a subject to such a way of loving.

The actor said, “As actors, we are used to fans naming their children after us, chasing us down the street and even giving us gifts. But this has shocked me. I will not be claiming anything. I did not know Nishi and I am very overwhelmed by the entire incident to speak about it”

The actor however refused to take all the money and decided to hand it over to the people who are the rightful owners of the same. This gesture in itself is very generous and will stay as a memory forever.

On the work front, Sanjay Dutt has a busy year set for him with five big-banner films – KGF: Chapter 2, Shamshera, Bhuj: The Pride of India, Torbaaz and Sadak 2 down his pipeline.
