Aamir Khan is one of the very few actors in the Indian Cinema who never gets tired of experimenting with looks for his movies. While we call it his act of perfection, Aamir, on the other hand, takes it as a necessity for an actor to undergo that transition and wear the required mask. Recently in a press interaction, Aamir Khan narrated a rather interesting tale where he confessed how the thought of losing stardom often scares him.
"I won't deny that I never get scared of losing stardom. I get very scared in fact! I remember what happened During Dangal. When I heard the story, I was extremely impressed and I knew that I have to do this film. But then I thought that I have just done Dhoom 3 and PK, and have six-packs and star-image. If I will do this film right now, then I will become old and fat. What my fans will think? I hope I don't lose my fan-following. I didn't have guts to change my image." quipped Aamir who was present here in the capital to promote his upcoming Secret Superstar.
He further said, "Mahavir is shown to be 55-year-old in the film. I am 52 in real life. So, there is less difference between us. We are too close. But my fans don't know that as they see me like I am some 30-year-old. So, I had even told the makers that I have liked the film but I will do it after 10 years when I grow a little old. They agreed to that too."
So what made him change his mind? "As a creative person what I want, I want. I was so fascinated by the story of Dangal that I ultimately decided to should go for it. When my emotional connect with the story is so strong, then I defy all logics and practicality and follow my the emotional instinct. This has happened many times with me," signs off Aamir.
