Fatima Sana Shaikh has made a mark for herself by taking on challenging and unconventional roles. From playing a young mother in the dark comedy 'Ludo' to portraying a woman trapped in a loveless marriage in 'Ajeeb Daastaans,' Fatima's career is a testament to her dedication to her craft.
Her upcoming role as India's former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, in 'Sam Bahadur' alongside Vicky Kaushal is her most challenging yet. In a recent interview, Fatima opens up about her choice of roles and the allure of layered characters.
Fatima said, “Layered characters challenge me. I am subconsciously drawn to them. I was not even sure if I was the right fit (to play Mrs Gandhi) . My brief was not to emulate Mrs Gandhi, but to capture her soul".
The film also stars Sanya Malhotra as Sam Manekshaw's(Vicky Kaushal )wife, Silloo. Neeraj Kabi, Richard Bhakti Klein, Edward Sonnenblick, Saqib Ayub, and Krishna Kant Singh Bundela are also playing pivotal characters in the biopic. The film is set to hit theatres on December 1.
Apart from her much-anticipated role in 'Sam Bahadur,' Fatima will also be seen in 'Metro In Dino.'
