Aamir Khan: Shakti Kumar an unusual character for me
Aamir Khan‘s next production ‘Secret Superstar’ revolves around a little girl with big dreams. While she aspires to become a famous singer, religious and societal norms block her way. Zaira Wasim of ‘Dangal’ fame will be donning the protagonist’s character. However, Aamir’s character is amusing us no less!
The superstar plays a music teacher. But from what the trailer showed us, his on-screen appearance is drastically different than how he really is. Not just us, he felt the same initially; and couldn’t even imagine himself doing the role.
In fact, debutant director Advait Chandan conducted a look test for Aamir; something he himself can’t believe. “Can you believe, I did a screen test of Aamir Khan for my first film,” he quipped. (Also Read:‘Secret Superstar’ is a family film and has a much wider scope, says Aamir Khan)
“When I heard the script from Advait I liked it a lot, then one day he said why don’t you act Shakti Kumar’s part. I said I can’t imagine myself doing that role. Even Kiran said the same. I said I’ll do a screen test first if I do well in the screen test then I can do the role.
During the screen test, I felt I was enjoying. It is an unusual character for me, very different from my actual self. So it was a challenge for me as an actor, to play a character and make people believe it’s genuine. Watch the film to decide how do you like it,” Aamir said.
‘Secret Superstar’ releases on October 19.

The teaser of the film will be out on 26th June!
Earlier, debutant director Atul Manjekar had spilled the beans on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s character in the film. He told Mumbai Mirror that the film features her as an “Indian Madonna”.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had recently shot for the biggest song of her career. The song is sung bySunidhi Chauhan and has been choreographed by award-winning dancer and creative director, Frank Gatson Jr, who has worked with Beyoncé and Rihanna in the past.
He told Mirror, “Aishwarya plays a huge pop icon who’s extremely popular with the youngsters. Her character is a fabulous dancer and singer who performs on the global stage. While fleshing out her character, we began referencing a bunch of choreographers who do international live shows. Frank is among the best in the world and we decided to approach him.”
“We have kept the tone of the film real and this song too is being choreographed tastefully. I’ve been extremely lucky with my cast as none of the actors turned me down,” Atul added.
The film is produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Anil Kapoor, and Bhushan Kumar. ‘Fanney Khan’ will hit theaters on August 3 and it’s loosely based on the Oscar-nominated Dutch film ‘Everybody’s Famous’!
Huma Qureshi gets mercilessly trolled for her swimsuit picture!
Bollywood actresses have become a fodder for trolls over the web and every other day we see actresses getting trolled. From body shaming them to even judging them for their life decisions, people on social media misuse the freedom of speech and mince no words while leaving a comment on their pictures. We wonder what is going in their mind while they post such demeaning comments. Forget mean comments, these jobless trolls even post few nasty comments, which are downright disgusting.
The latest actress who became a victim of the trolls is the ‘Jolly LLB 2’ actress, Huma Qureshi. The 32-year-old beauty had recently posted a picture in a swimsuit. But trolls being jobless, as usual, demeaned her in no time. (Also Read:EXCLUSIVE: Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem plan to start their own production house?)
Check out her picture:
We wonder what is so vulgar about her picture? But then, people out there are way smart (which they think), and started judging the lady on basis of her weight and other things which we do not find appropriate to mention.
Have a look at the few trolls here:
It is extremely saddening to read such lewd comments! Talking about her professional front, the actress was last seen in a Tamil film ‘Kaala’ featuring South superstar Rajnikanth. The film was dubbed in Hindi and Telugu and was loved by the audience.
