Aamir Khan has a massive fan-following that is not just limited to India. And when you are a star so loved, it’s not a surprise when fans go completely starry-eyed upon meeting you. Certainly, who wouldn’t get star-struck on meeting the Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist? The same can be said for actress Rani Mukerji, who once got a chance to meet the superstar when she was a little school girl. Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of the actress. She appeared as the celebrity guest on host Simi Garewal’s talk show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’.
It was then, when she was asked about her favourite heroes in Bollywood, Rani first took the name of Amitabh Bachchan, followed by Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. She further revealed how as a little girl, she took and collected the autographs from all three of them. But then, she added another shocking revelation to the story. Rani revealed that though she got the autograph of Aamir Khan, the latter broke her heart. How? Read on to know.

She said on the show, “Like I keep teasing Aamir even today that I remember he was shooting for a film called ‘Love Love Love’ with Juhi (Chawla) and I went up to him and I guess he was in a middle of a shot or something and I went and I was very excited that I am going to take Aamir Khan’s autograph. So I had you know written ‘Dearest Aamir’ on my autograph book. You know it was because his ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ had released and he was like every young girl’s dream and I went up to him and very shy, and said Aamir.” [sic]
“And I bunked school and I went and he was like really rude to me, he just took my book and he signed and he gave it to me, so my heart broke and then when I shot my film with him ‘Ghulam’, once we were shooting for ‘Aati Kya Khandala’, that song and I told Aamir, I said ‘Aamir do you remember once you had given an autograph to this small little girl? He’s like ‘When’, So I said during the time of ‘Love Love Love’, it was me. He said you are lying Rani I’m never rude. I’m never rude to kids or I’m never rude to anybody who comes for an autograph and I said you were rude to me. And then I went home and I got the autograph book and showed it to him,” added the actress. [sic]
Well, it’s really hard to believe that Aamir Khan was rude to a little girl who eventually went on to become his co-star. Poor Rani, though. What she thought to be a moment to remember for a lifetime, turned out to be a heartbreaking one.
