Dangal ‘s super success worked wonders for actor Fatima Sana Shaikh who has bagged Thugs Of Hindostan, starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Her co-star in Dangal, Sanya Malhotra, hasn’t been offered a film as yet. However, she isn’t complaining, and prefers to take it slow. “It’s very important for me to feel creatively excited about a character when I’m reading a script. It should be interesting and at the same time, challenging as well,” she says.
The Delhi-born actor says the only yardstick for her is the role being offered. “ As an actor, what’s important is what I can do with the character and how I can contribute to the script,” she says.
She isn’t worried about taking on similar roles, as she feels that every role is distinct from the other. “If it’s a sequel then obviously it’s a whole new ball game altogether and the script would require a repeat of the character. But other than that, I feel that each character is different in its own unique way. A character that is often used in movies, whether it is a good or a bad influence, is not uncommon. Despite that, the stories of each film are distinct and I don’t mind if I am repeating a role,” she adds.
So does she have any roles in mind that she wants to do? “No, as an actor I want to try and do any role possible. That’s the beauty of our job. We can be anything and everything,” she says.
