For Foxstar Studio's Tantrik movie, makers earlier contacted Abhishek Bachchan but it seems they have approached on Saif Ali Khan for the same role. There have been several rounds of discussions with the actor and many negotiations been made, it seems they have zeroed on Saif. Dangal fame Fatima Sana Sheik bags role in Tantrik. The studio signed Dangal girl to cast alongside Saif Ali Khan in this movie. Saif-Fatima makes an unusual pair, onscreen it will be scintillating for sure. Still, the details unknown the character Fatima will be playing, the actress is pretty confident this role will be another memorable in her career.
Fatima's last film Thugs of Hindostan starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan released with huge expecations but tanked at boxoffice. The film Dangal brought her immense recognition. Last year it was a bitter experience for Fatima. The role in TOH didn't helped her in any way. She has become choosy about the roles instead of accepting the roles in hasty. Apart from Tantrik, she is featuring in the film directed by Anurag Basu. She will be acting as a pair to Rajkummar Rao and she seems very excited to be part of this project. Fatima also completed one schedule relating to this film.
Tantrik movie will be directed by Pawan Kripalani and this flick is said to be a horror comedy.
