Fatima Sana Shaikh was a popular child artist before making her debut with the 2016 film Dangal. The actress said she does not shy over contacting filmmakers she wants to work with. The actress never has any objection to reaching out to people through text and calls.
In an interview to a leading publication, the actress shared, “I do this to remind people that I am present. I don’t do a lot of films, so I’m not always there. Sometimes people forget in casting that there is this actress also. It is very important to remind them.”
Fatime further added, “If you don’t fight for your location and your position, no one else will. If I have to call someone and remind them that I am present and I don’t mind auditioning, I am ready. There’s nothing wrong with this.”
She added, “I know a lot of artists who have achieved a lot in their lives by doing this. I like to create opportunities for myself rather than just sitting at home and wonder why I don’t have work. You have to work hard and ask for work.”
In the recent race for success, the actress has managed to entertain people with her film LUDO, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari in the last 6 months. She shares, “I’m glad people are getting to see my
work. After all, you work is to entertain people. Things are off now and it can’t be more heartening that people can see my work, which I shot before the epidemic. I like it very much that we have the OTT platform. They are broadcasting films that are not releasing in theatres. Now we have a new way to connect with the audience.”
His latest release, Strange Tales was well received by the audience and her performance was equally appreciated by critics. Fatima shared: “Many people in the industry appreciate your work that recognises and hopes for you, but the audience’s reaction also matters. They are the king and if they don’t like your work, your game is over.”
