Aamir Khan: Shakti Kumar an unusual character for me

Aamir Khan in Secret Superstar

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.
