Fatima Sana Shaikh is currently busy signing projects that will help her move on from the debacle of Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan. She's shooting for Anurag Basu's next multi-starrer with Rajkummar Rao and if recent reports are to believe, she's also in talks to romance Saif Ali Khan in his next. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the Sacred Games actor was approached by Fox Star Studios to star in Tantrik after Abhishek Bachchan refused to give his nod. Though there were a couple of negotiations that happened between Saif and the production house, the project is finally ready to move ahead and Fatima is the latest name to come on board. LEAKED!

While no official announcement of the project is made yet, makers are planning to release a statement very soon. As an actress, she's interested in trying her hand at different genres. After a biopic then a period drama, comedy only seems a wise choice. Fatima Sana Shaikh OPENS UP on Rumors of Dating Aamir Khan.
Fatima relied heavily on the success of Thugs of Hindostan. After tasting immense success with Aamir Khan's Dangal, she was keen to repeat history. However, with the film's underperformance at the box office, she's determined to sign movies that will benefit her career as an actress. Earlier during an interaction with the reporters at an event, she opened up about the failure of TOH. She said, "Yeah, it hasn’t done well. It is very heartbreaking. It is very sad because we all tried our best to make a good film. That’s what we tried to do. But unfortunately, the film didn’t work, people didn’t like it. I’m just feeling very bad about this." Well, we hope she is over the debacle and ready to move on ahead in her life.
