Story highlights

Fatima starred with Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif in 'Thugs of Hindostan'.

‘Thugs of Hindostan’ was possibly the most underwhelming film of the year with it crashing on the box office like no one thought it would. 

Speaking on the failure of the film at the green carpet premiere of Netflix’s original Selection Day on Tuesday, Fatima who was earlier seen in ‘Dangal’ said, "Yeah, it hasn’t done well. It is very heartbreaking. It is very sad because we all tried our best to make a good film. That’s what we tried to do. But unfortunately, the film didn’t work, people didn’t like it. I’m just feeling very bad about this,”

Fatima starred with Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, and Katrina Kaif in the film. 

On another note, when asked about ‘Selection Day’, ‘Dangal’ actress said: “I found the trailer very interesting. I’m happy that with Netflix there are a lot of Indian show coming up. So we have a lot of opportunities, writers and directors have a lot of opportunities. These days, we have a lot of options for us to perform. It’s great that these series are out. Like Sacred Games is an amazing show and I hope Selection Day will be great as well.” 

Fatima is currently working on a film with Rajkummar Rao which will be directed by filmmaker Anurag Basu.
