Fatima Sana Shaikh is a leading actress in Bollywood Industry. She has appeared in many blockbuster Bollywood films and still continues to entertain through her films, and her lovely social media presence. The beautiful actress recently shared a horrific experience that she experienced as a kid. She said that she was molested when she was 3 years old.
In her recent interview with PinkVilla, She spoke about how society does not let women dream. She said she had faced multiple rejections in her acting career because people told her that she is not heroine-worthy as she doesn’t look like Deepika Padukone or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She further said that sexism exists in all sections of society and that you will always find people who will demotivate you and make you feel worthless. She even went on to say that she was molested when she was three years old.
In her interview, she said, “I have faced people telling me that the only way to get a job is through sex. So that has also happened to me. I have lost jobs to someone else for whatever reason. But I feel that there are a lot of struggles that a lot of people are facing apart from this industry and sexism is very much relevant and it exists in every industry. I was molested when I was five years old. No! I was three years old. So you understand how deep sexism goes. It’s a battle we fight on an everyday basis. Every woman, every minority fights every day. And I hope our future is better,”
Fatima started her Bollywood career with Bollywood’s most successful movie, Dangal. She made her way into Bollywood with her brilliant talent and extraordinary personality. Fatima will be seen in Ludo and Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, she gave the reason behind her choosing these films, she said, “I never think of it as me wanting to try a different genre. Of course, I do want to experiment with different roles so it’s more about how interesting the project is to me. Like with Ludo, I wanted to do the film because of Dada (Basu) and with Suraj Pe Mangal, because of the amazing star cast. There are so many actors and all of them are so good. From Manoj sir to Seema Pahwa, Manoj Pahwa, Annu Kapoor, Diljit, Supriya Pilgaonkar…I mean it’s a heavy-duty cast. And then Abhishek, who has made Tere Bin Laden, so comedy is his thing. So I felt like I want to be a part of it because it is going to be a learning experience. I don’t know when I will get to work with Manoj sir again so I had to jump into it,”
