Fatima Sana Shaikh is set to star in Sam Bahadur with Vicky Kaushal. Shaikh will essay the role of Indira Gandhi in the film, and fans have anxiously been waiting to see the star’s transformation for the role. The actress recently obliged her fans with a sneak peek inside her vanity van on the sets of the film.
Fatima posted a sneak peek of her preparation for her role on her social media accounts. Fatima seems to be hard at work trying to get into the skin of the character. She posted an image of the book she was reading to prepare for her character, titled Indira -The Life Of Indira Nehru Gandhi. She captioned the post with “Such an interesting book on her life. Half way through.. would highly recommend it.”
She also posted a behind-the-scenes photo of herself seated in front of a mirror on the set of the much anticipated movie Sam Bahadur with the hashtag "Sam Bahadur" in the caption.
Meanwhile, Sam Bahadur is inspired by the life of Sam Manekshaw, the Indian Army's Chief of the Army Staff during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War. He was the first Indian Army commander to be appointed to the rank of field marshal. Meghna Gulzar is the director, while RSVP Movies, owned by Ronnie Screwvala, is the producer of the upcoming film. Sam Bahadur's script was written by Bhavani Iyer, Meghna's father Gulzar, and Shantanu Srivastava.
On the work front, Fatima's last acting appearance was in Modern Love Mumbai's Raat Rani, where her performance was well-received. Fatima has an intriguing schedule, and has Dhak Dhak in the pipeline as well. Co-written and co-directed by Tarun Dudeja; Taapsee Pannu, Pranjal Khandhdiya, and Ayush Maheshwari served as producers for the film. Dhak Dhak also stars Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza, and Sanjana Sanghi.
