Fatima Sana Shaikh who was last seen in films like Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari and Ludo has a couple of big movies in her kitty. She is a part of Karan Johar's Ajeeb Dastans, and now she has been finalised as the main lead of the Hindi remake of Aruvi (2017). The Tamil film starred Aditi Balan and was directed by Arun Prabhu Purushothaman. But the Hindi film will be made by Eshwar Nivas. The project will be bankrolled by Applause Entertainment and Viki Rajani’s Faith Films. The Tamil movie was a critical and commercial hit. In the film, the lead protagonist is disowned by her family and has to build a new life in Chennai. Aditi Balan put up a wonderful performance of a woman who finds an outlet to her anger on reality TV.
In a statement to MiD-Day, Fatima Sana Shaikh says, "I am thrilled to do the Aruvi remake, and am looking forward to diving deep into the character. I am glad that [the two studios] have come together with E Nivas to make this content." It seems casting is on in full swing for other members of the cast. The film will go on floors in mid-2021. Producer Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment, told MiD-Day, "Equally funny and ferocious, Aruvi is a feminist social satire that stunned us when we first saw it. We were drawn in by its unconventional narrative, deftly balancing its black comedy leanings with the beats of a taut thriller."
Fatima Sana Shaikh was working in Bollywood as a child artiste in the early 2000's. The actress did a number of small roles in films before she bagged Dangal. She played the part of Aamir Khan's daughter. Her next release Thugs Of Hindostan was a flop at the box office. She has also worked on TV shows like Best Of Luck Nikki and Ladies Special.
