Celebrities are no stranger to receiving cooked-up stories, that does not, however, mean that one gets to mess around with Fatima Shah Shaikh and get away with it. After making an onscreen appearance together with Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan in Dangal and Thugs Of Hindostan rumours roamed that the co-stars have a little something going on off the script and screen. The actor, who for the most time keeps her private life private finally opened up when sitting down with Filmfare about the Aamir dating rumours. The actress replying on the claims responds that she is greatly disturbed by all the gossips when all she sees in Aamir is a mentor and a good friend.
Making clear about the link-up rumours, Fatima told Filmfare, “Earlier, I used to get affected. I’d feel bad. Because I’ve never dealt with anything of this sort at such a big level. A bunch of strangers, whom I’ve never met, are writing things about me. They don’t even know if there’s any truth to it. People reading it assume that I’m ‘not a good 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. But If I’m not, I don’t want them to see me as a bad person. But I’ve learnt to ignore it. Yet, there are some days when I do get affected.”
After having had the chance to work with Mr.Perfectionist, Aamir Khan, Fatima also shared her choice of whom she would like to work with next. Without any hesitations, the actor admitted that she is looking forward to working with romance king, Shah Rukh Khan somewhere in the future.
