Fatima Sana Shaikh: It baffles me why we view competition negatively.

Sam Bahadur star Fatima Sana Shaikh discusses her career aspirations and other topics.

Performer Fatima Sana Shaikh says she is both happy and competitive, citing her successful year as evidenced by the success of her roles in Sam Bahadur and Dhak Dhak. The one thing that bothers her, though, is the unfavorable connotation attached to the word competition.

Regarding her projects, she states, “I follow my gut when choosing a product.” From the screenplay to the director, I can see what excites me about the roles overall. I study the screenplay thoroughly and absorb as much information as I can from it when I’m getting ready for a role. The characters, though, don’t stick with me. I instantly leave the character as soon as I step out.

Based on her career graph, she has played a variety of characters over the years. “Playing a variety of roles makes you more sensitive and empathic to other people. those who are not from your industry or world. You gain acceptance, sensitivity, and empathy,” she claims.

She says, “Times have changed where people are okay to see actors in different roles,” talking about how she has avoided stereotypes. Actresses portraying a variety of roles are now more widely accepted. I’m not helping myself with that. That feels freeing. We only have one life, so let’s make the most of it. I don’t want to let my fear of rejection prevent me from trying something new.

Here, she acknowledges that her priorities are her own needs rather than those of others.

“After working in the field long enough, you realize that insecurities are common. Even though it’s inevitable, you can’t let that deter you. And you can’t think that’s the best course of action by being like Kissi aur Ko neeche karke aage badenge. That is incorrect, Shaikh informs us.

“You should wish that everyone should do well, and you want to do better than that,” the 31-year-old continues. Though I strive to see the bright side of things, I am competitive. That’s my attitude toward life and work. Because it is an endless circle if you are in the habit of comparing yourself to other people. There will always be problems and imperfections.

The actor goes on to express her opinions, saying, “It’s healthy to be competitive. It is not necessary to harm others in order to be competitive. All you need to do is improve upon who you were the day before. Typically, there is a lot of negativity associated with competition. That’s not how things ought to be. And I now view it that way.
