Aamir Khan: As kids, we were kept away from the glamour of filmmaking
Due to his hard work and sheer dedication, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is today known as Mr Perfectionist. The actor has come a long way and people look up to him for inspiration.
Interestingly very few would know that Aamir’s father Tahir Hussain was a filmmaker. However, you all will be shocked to know that during Aamir’s childhood, he was kept away from the Indian film industry and its glamour. Yes, that’s true.
Talking about his father on Zee Cafe’s chat-show “Starry Nights 2. Oh!”, Aamir Khan said, “We kids were pretty much kept away from the glamour of filmmaking. We rarely went to shoots. The only films we would get to watch were the films that my father and uncle made.”
“We were also exposed to the actual filmmaking side of it. Whenever a writer and a director came to pitch a story to my father, I would sit in the corner and listen to the story.” Aamir added.
Notably, Aamir appeared on the chat show with his cousin sister Nuzhat Khan. Together they revealed many secrets from their childhood. Importantly, Aamir Khan has always been a family man. From being by his daughter’s side to witness her great achievements to having fun with his youngest son Azad Rao Khan, the actor makes sure he is a part of every important day of his kids’ life.
On the work front, Aamir Khan’s last outing ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ failed to leave its mark at the box-office. The movie also featured Katrina Kaif, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh. At present, he is apparently busy with his mega project that is based on the ‘Mahabharata’. It is reportedly being made as a seven-part web series.
