However, Fatima isn't upset with the restrictions and she has happily obliged to them. "Fatima is willing to listen to Adi, given that this film is important for her. Also, it revolves around her character, and she believes she'll be able to showcase her talent by paying heed to his suggestions," the source told mid-day.
Earlier this year, a picture of Fatima, dressed as a warrior and reported to be from a look test for the film, went crazy viral.

Of her appearance in the film, the source told mid-day, "Fatima will be seen in a new avatar, one that's drastically different from her look in Dangal. She will sport traditional attire and long hair. She will also be seen performing sword-fighting. Hence, Fatima only wishes to focus on her act."
Fatima Sana Shaikh played wrestler Geeta Phogat in last year's blockbuster release Dangal. Team Thugs Of Hindostan shot in Malta for the film a few months ago.
Thugs Of Hindostan is scheduled to release next year in November.
