Fatima Sana Shaikh has started shooting for Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial, Thugs of Hindostan alongside Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif in Malta.
Today, the talented actress shared a series of hot pictures on her Instagram page. In the picture, she is seen wearing a black halter neck bikini with high waist shorts. She is sitting on a wooden chair at a beautiful beach.
Earlier, Victor (Vijay) spoke about Fatima saying, "The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of the action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film."
On how she got the role, a source revealed to a leading daily, "Nobody was surprised when Fatima Sana Shaikh was signed opposite Aamir Khan in Thugs Of Hindostan. While a few top actresses including Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and even Vaani Kapoor were in talks to do the film, most of them, save Vaani, weren't so keen once they heard the fee for the film, especially when Aamir was being given his market price and more. The actresses had loved the script as it revolved around the female protagonist taking revenge but the talks fizzled out when they realised that Aditya Chopra wanted them to sign the film almost for free. There was a discussion whether Vaani or Fatima suited the role better — the latter was Aamir's choice and the former Adi's. Eventually, Aamir had his way."
The movie went on floors from June 1, 2017, and will be released during Diwali 2018 weekend.
