Fatima Sana Shaikh made an impressionable Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan's Dangal. That was that and the actress became an overnight phenomenon. The sports drama saw her play the elder daughter Geeta of Mahavir Phogat and honestly, there has been no looking back! Not to mention she shared screen space with Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan and it was really the cherry on the cake.
And if insider information is anything to go by she is all set to work with another khan superstar and it's none other than Shah Rukh Khan. According to Bollywood Hugamam, Fatima is being considered for a role in SRK starrer 'Salute'. A source was quoted saying that while the makers are still hunting for the female face, they are quite impressed with Fatima's acting skills and are keen on casting her. However, nothing has been officially decided as yet. Other big names are also being considered for the part. Directed by Mahesh Mithai, the film revolves around the life of Rakesh Sharma, a former Indian Air Force pilot and the first Indian citizen to travel to the outer space. In fact, the shooting of the biopic will reportedly commence from February this year.
After Dangal, Fatima went to essay yet another interesting character of a pirate in 'Thugs Of Hindostan'. However, this time the movie tanked and took a beating at the box office even after a big opening. It features Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif beside Fatima in the lead role.
