When Fatima Sana Shaikh made her debut with Dangal (2016), she took the industry by storm.
Her acting in the Aamir Khan-starrer did stun all, but it was her off-screen camaraderie with Aamir that raised eyebrows.
This got pronounced when she appeared in Thugs Of Hindostan, sparking rumors of an affair between them.
However, Fatima lashed out saying these rumors disturb her.
Addressing the rumors, Fatima told Filmfare that these reports have no truth in them.
"Earlier, I used to get affected. Because I've never dealt with anything of this sort at such a big level," she said.
Further, the idea of 'bunch of strangers' writing things about her used to unnerve her.
"They don't even know if there's any truth to it," Fatima emphasized.
As soon as reports about Aamir-Fatima's 'relationship' surfaced, there were rumors that Mr. Perfectionist's marriage with Kiran Rao has hit a rocky path.
However, Fatima clarified and stated that she doesn't want people to assume wrong things about her.
"It disturbs me because I don't want people to assume wrong things. I don't want them to see me as a bad person," she said.
Though such rumors distress her, the 27-year-old actor is slowly learning to ignore them and cope up in her own way. That's because she doesn't need to explain herself anymore, she feels, but admits "there are some days when I do get affected."
On the work front, Fatima has begun shooting for Anurag Basu's yet-to-be-titled directorial, which also stars Rajkummar Rao.
"The film will narrate four different stories which are set in four small towns across the country," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
This is the first time Fatima will be sharing the screen space with the Stree actor and she is quite excited about it.
