Fatima recalls her journey from 'Chachi 420' to 'Dangal' Fatima Sana Shaikh

Fatima Sana Shaikh is known for her extraordinary role in the path-breaking film 'Dangal'. However, a lesser-known fact is that the actress had also featured in the 1997 supper hit film 'Chachi 420' as a child actress.

Reminiscing about the old days of 'Chachi 420', Fatima recently spoke to a leading newspaper. "The first time I ever faced the camera was for 'Chachi 420'. I was five at the time of shooting and didn't understand what being on set meant. I was just happy to be on holiday with my family in Madras (Chennai), where the film was shot.

When you are the only child on the set you inadvertently become the apple of everyone's eye. I remember being pampered a lot by everyone on the set including Kamal Haasan sir and Tabu. Between shots, they would bring me treats and treat me like royalty."

The actress even took the opportunity to explain how her first shot looked like and what she was expected to do. Fatima spoke at length about how a child is so into the moment that they just don't feel any kind of insecurity in front of the camera.
