As soon as Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao announced their separation, Fatima Sana Shaikh found herself trending on Twitter. She shared screen space with the superstar in Dangal (2016) and Thugs of Hindostan (2018).
A section of netizens raked up reports of the alleged closeness of the two actors and the gossip that did the rounds about them during the filming of Thugs of Hindostan.
The statement further added that the couple has been in talks of separation for a while, but will continue to work together on their passion projects.
Shaikh became popular even before the audience knew her name. Way back in 1997, she endeared herself to viewers playing Kamal Hassan and Tabu’s daughter in “Chachi 420”.
