Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has stepped into the shoes of a fearless warrior Zafira in Thugs of Hindostan. Going by the trailer, Zafira is fiery and spectacular. She is a really brilliant fighter and specialises in combat by bow and arrow. It may sound all exciting but it was challenging for Fatima. Not action scenes, but hair was the main challenge for the actress.
“I could have never imagined that playing Zafira’s role would be difficult because of the hair. Sitting for three hours every day in the morning before the shoot is quite a pain. Kudos to them because they imagined me so completely different,” Fatima revealed in a statement. Fatima’s look as Zafira became pretty popular but it wasn’t a cakewalk for the costume designers, Rushi and Manoshi. “Zafira was one of the most challenging characters for us. We found fabrics that we thought best described Zafira and then we got her to stand like a mannequin and draped and draped fabric for five to six hours,” Rushi and Manoshi revealed.
Film Thugs of Hindostan is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug. The movie is set to hit the screens on November 8.
