The Dangal star asserted, “It took me 5 years to accept that I have Epilepsy, and it's okay, it’s not a big issue.” The actress believes that the more casually we discuss it and speak out about it, the more it will contribute to raising awareness and highlighting its importance. Accepting it and talking about it is crucial. 

Furthermore, she added, “I didn’t realise how difficult it must be for my parents and how much I was creating trouble for them by just not being ready to take the medicines on time”, hence this was only going to make things easier for her and the loved ones around her.

Fatima also shared her conversation about how a paparazzi called her out for being a patient with epilepsy. Taking it very sportingly, Fatima went along and accepted his words. She firmly believes that there is nothing to be shy or shame of accepting unless you are a bad person or have bad intentions with it. One should rather trust themselves, give it a chance and overcome it. 

Meanwhile, on the work front, Fatima will be seen in Dhak Dhak, directed and co-written by Tarun Dudeja. It is co-produced by Taapsee Pannu, Pranjal Khandhdiya, and Ayush Maheshwari. She has recently wrapped Sam Bahadur in which she will be seen playing the role of Indira Gandhi next to Vicky Kaushal and Sanya Malhotra.
