The official description of Fatima’s character reads, “Zafira is fiery and stunning. She is an extremely talented fighter and specialises in combat by bow and arrow.

In the motion poster, Fatima, who wowed the audience as a wrestler in Dangal, sports a warrior’s outfit and a scar on her eyebrow. Just like the film’s logo and Amitabh Bachchan’s character poster, the background score of this recently released poster is something which is going to stay with you for long.
Also starring Katrina Kaif, Thugs of Hindostan is Fatima’s second film with Aamir after Dangal.
Based on a novel by Philip Meadows Taylor, Confessions of a Thug which details the lives and activities of a gang of thugs who murdered travellers for money and valuables, Thugs of Hindostan has been shot across Mumbai, Malta, Morocco and Thailand. The movie will hit screens on November 8, 2018.
