Fatima Sana Shaikh is known for the versatile actor she is and the varied roles she plays with great ease on screen. In the upcoming Netflix anthology film Ajeeb Daastaans, she plays a brave and strong bride who has her moments of vulnerability, stuck in an unhappy marriage. Always competing for love and attention, her character of Leepakshi is multifaceted and very layered.
Accompanying Fatima are maverick actors Jaideep Ahlawat and Armaan Rahlan appearing together in the short film Majnu, directed by Shashank Khaitan. Majnu is the story of a young couple caught up in a battle of affection, neither one nor the other. The entry of a young new male employee leads to a series of strange events. Speaking about her character in the film, Fatima Sana Shaikh said, “My character Leepakshi is very different from myself or any other character that I have played before. I would like to think I’m brave like her, but luckily I have love in my life, unlike her. Leepakshi is very aggressive and has no inhibitions. I, on the other hand, am full of inhibitions. My character can grab attention and play games to any extent, unlike me. It was definitely a challenge to play someone as uninhibited as Leepakshi.
The talented cast of the ensemble includes Fatima Sana Shaikh, Jaideep Ahlawat, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Abhishek Banerjee, Inayat Verma, Konkona Sen Sharma, Aditi Rao Hydari, Shefali Shah, Manav Kaul and Tota Roy Chowdhury.
Ajeeb Daastaans brings together four unusual stories that delve into the complex themes of fractured relationships and human emotions such as jealousy, law, prejudice and toxicity, and their effects. Bringing together some of the country’s best talent, the film is produced by Dharmatic Entertainment, directed by a team of notable directors – Shashank Khaitan, Raj Mehta, Neeraj Ghaywan and Kayoze Irani – and is set to release on April 16, 2021, only on Netflix.
