The film Dangal starring Aamir Khan by Nitesh Tiwari brought the two girls – Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra together. Somewhere there were rumors that the two girls were dating. However, when Fatima Sana Shaikh heard about the same she said she was laughing like hell as to how come she can date her Dangal co-star Sanya Malhotra. She claimed that she and Sanya are good friends and this could be the worst to see in their lives someone talking about their dating thing.
When asked about what she likes the most about Sanya, Fatima added that she had learnt a lot from her. She said Sanya loves to keep everything around her clear, while Sanya is introvert and Fatima is extrovert. This made Fatima learn to hold herself at times. She added that she also loves the dedication of Sanya for her work. When talked about their religious difference and upbringing, she said the two make an ideal poster girl for secular India.
She said it talks about the unity element despite being so diverse in nature. Talking about Shah Rukh Khan she said earlier that she has been his big fan and commenting about SRK, she said she would love to see him dance on the Mumbai streets and strip. While talking about proposing to anyone she calls a man proposing his wife on the top of the Eiffel tower to be an ideal thing which she would want SRK to do with her.
