“Earlier, I used to get affected. I’d feel bad. Because I’ve never dealt with anything of this sort at such a big level,” she admitted, in an interview with a magazine.
“A bunch of strangers, whom I’ve never met, are writing things about me. They don’t even know if there’s any truth to it. People reading it assume that I’m ‘not a good person’. You feel like telling that person, ‘Ask me, I’ll give you an answer,'” the actress added.
Rumors have it that Fatima had driven a wedge between Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao.
“It disturbs me because I don’t want people to assume wrong things. Agar main asliyat mein haraami hoon toh people should see my asliyat. But if I’m not, I don’t want them to see me as a bad person,” she said.
Fatima has now realized that such link-ups are a part and parcel of being in the entertainment industry.
“But I’ve learnt to ignore it. Yet, there are some days when I do get affected,” she said.
Fatima will be seen next in Anurag Basu’s as-yet untitled film opposite Rajkummar Rao. The film is rumoured to be a sequel of Life In A Metro.
