Fatima Sana Shaikh who entered the world of Bollywood with Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' recently fell prey to online bullying when a certain section claimed that she used a black photograph as a display picture on Instagram. The incident took place when the entire world was celebrating Independence Day on August 15th. Condemning the act and hitting out at the trolls, the actress penned a rather strong-worded post. Clarifying that the news doing rounds on the internet were fake, she wrote, "So, someone on Twitter has posted a fake post about me uploading a black image as my DP today. For God knows what reason. Because of this, I have been receiving a lot of hate since morning. Please don’t fall prey to fake posts and get swayed by it. Thanks”.
However, while the actress was heavily trolled on social media with many people commenting that she has 'sympathsied with Pakistan', there were others who came to her support and asked the trolls to stop spreading hate.
Meanwhile, on the work front, the actress will next be seen in 'Bhoot Police'. This is the first time that Saif and Fatima will be seen sharing screen space. 'Bhoot Police' will be directed by Pavan Kripalani, who earlier helmed films like 'Ragini MMS' and 'Phobia', among others. Reportedly, the film was initially titled 'Tantrik' and Abhishek Bachchan was set to play the lead role. However, due to some unknown reasons, Saif was roped in for the film.The release date of the film has not been revealed by the makers yet.
