Showbiz actor Fatima Effendi revealed she had turned down a film offer from Bollywood due to certain limitations and boundaries.

“I never wanted it to be out, as people believe that it is made up or something but years ago I did get an offer for Anees Bazmee film which I never disclosed to anyone,” Effendi told the outlet.
She added, “I got the offer but did not accept it.”
“I have some limitations – not from family though – these are the boundaries that I have set for myself, which I follow even for dramas, but in films, you know, it is a different genre altogether, there are certain scenes, there is skin exposure [which I’m not comfortable with] in my boundaries,” the celebrity explained.
Effendi said that she is grateful and content with the work that she is doing with the directors who understand her limitations.
“Even in films, if there is something which is within my boundaries, I will definitely do it,” Effendi concluded.
