Know what makes Aamir Khan different from his contemporaries?

by Vibhuti Gupta, Monday, May 28, 2018

Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood Aamir Khan has a brilliant approach for each and every project that comes his way. On the occasion of completing 30 years in the film fraternity, Aamir decided to take a walk down the memory land. The actor, is known for his fine works and for introducing roles that now considered as a replacement of yesteryears’ ‘jubilee weeks’ – the 100 crore club.

Aamir made his debut opposite Juhi Chawla

In a media interaction, Aamir Khan took the time out and spoke about how different elements at various stages of his life helped him make what he is today. Talking about his first day of shoot for Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Aamir said, “It was my first day of shooting, we were in Ooty. The scene was where we are lost, and I was lying on the straws. All of a sudden there was so much fog there that we had to wait the whole day to shoot, and I felt that if my first day of shooting as an actor is a washout, then this isn’t a good omen. I hoped my career wouldn’t be like that (laughs).”

He has surely worked his fame but always remained down to earth and humble. When asked about his opinion regarding his acting chops, Aamir simply said, "I’m not a born actor… like Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Dilip Kumar, Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan), Zaira (Wasim). They all are a powerhouse. When they give a shot, it comes out very naturally and effortlessly. I don’t think I have that gift.” He explains this referring to a case he observed while shooting for Dangal. “When we were rehearsing for Dangal, Zaira got the accent in about a week’s time while I took four months to get it right and still on the days we used to shoot I used to struggle with it. So I need to work my way to get it right, I’m not a natural.”

Giving an insight of what he likes as an actor, he said, “The first reading I feel is so bad…(smiling) During Lagaan’s reading, I felt Ashutosh (Gowariker) would drop me from the film with the likes of Raghubir Yadav around. So my first reading is pathetic according to me. Post that I start working on it and my biggest strength is that I’m not scared to fail. So even if my rehearsals are bad, I keep doing it, so I figure out what and how I eventually want to pitch. Also, I have a good sense of performance. So while some are gifted, I know for me I’ve to work and achieve that point.”

Aamir also revealed the one character that has actually been challenging for him to play on screen. “It has to be PK. It is because I play an alien and I have no reference points. But Raju gave me a good cue. He said that I should think I’m from the earth and have been transported to a different planet. ‘Now think this way, and everything will be new to you,’ he had said. But no, this was also difficult because actually, I know everything that is there on earth but my actions cannot convey that. So the process of unlearning was challenging.”

On the work front, Aamir Khan will be next seen in Vijay Krishna Acharya's action-drama Thugs of Hindostan, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Sheikh and Katrina Kaif.Follow our Bollywood Magazine For Latest Bollywood News and Gossips.
