Fatima Sana Shaikh
actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has been enjoying all the compliments for her performance as wrestler Geeta Phogat in the film. Among all the praises, the ones from Bollywood veterans, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Rekha have given her a lot of satisfaction. She would treasure their words of appreciation for life. Bachchan and Rekha have written to her personally, praising her acting skills in the film.
Fatima is overwhelmed with this gesture, as a personally handwritten letter by such iconic actors to a newcomer means a lot. Kapoor took to social media and tweeted, “Prediction. This girl Fatima of Dangal will be a huge star. Let her hair grow ! Or may be not you never know lol.” Fatima was surprised and emotionally moved by her favourite Kapoor’s words.
Says the actress, “When such acting powerhouses take note of your work and express their appreciation, it is an overwhelming feeling. I could not believe it when Rishiji tweeted. Then Amitji and Rekha ma’am sent handwritten letters which I have read more than fifty times. Dangal is a very special film for me and these are my lifetime treasures.” Sharing screen space with Aamir Khan and standing out despite his towering presence are achievements that will do wonders to Fatima’s confidence.
