Is Aamir Khan playing Anu Malik in Secret Superstar ?

Is Aamir Khan playing Anu Malik in Secret Superstar ?

The 52-year-old actor, who has been at the centre of some of Bollywood's biggest money-spinners, said he "strongly believes" in equality but change will happen only if there is a paradigm shift in society's attitude.

Zaira Wasim, the National Award-winning actress from "Dangal", seems to have made Aamir Khan her biggest fan as the latter feels that she is the finest actor in the industry.

"And that is not going to be determined by her gender, it is the market that will determine that. I will give her value, from a purely economical point of view", said Aamir, who also co-produces most of the films he stars in. Adds the source, "If you see the parts in the trailer, teaser, or the making of the film, you will find that though Aamir's character may not look like Anu, his mannerisms have a lot of similarities with that of the music director". "That is what we describe as stardom". That can be Salim-Javed or AR Rahman, anybody who has the ability to fill seats gets a bigger payment. Zaira and Aamir had a great time interacting with the media and audience and talked about their upcoming film.

"I am glad that I got to work with him (Aamir) twice. I believe all people of the creative team should be paid equally and perhaps writer and director are the only ones who should be paid higher". Everyone should be valued equally. He said: "We don't see women as heroes. We start planting these thoughts in our heads since childhood". "But it was also very enjoyable as by playing Shakti Kumarr, I could do all the things that otherwise I don't do or I am not allowed to do and so I want to thank Advait for this role".

Aamir Khan is someone who is known to deliver his hundred percent when it comes to portraying a character on the silver screen.

"Dangal" was a biopic directed by Nitesh Tiwari and was released on December 23, 2016.
