Almost a couple of years ago, Fatima was asked if epilepsy affected her career aspirations, to which she had said, “I mean I have to go a bit slow. But I can do everything. There are some odd and tough days. That slows me down. But I have been fortunate enough to work with people I have been dying to work with.

In fact, it pushes and drives me to work harder.” The actress also said that her pet Bijlee is her therapy dog.
