After Dangal, Aamir Khan Comes Up With Yet Another Inspiring Film



Aamir Khan is back with another film, which is exactly what is expected out of him. His last film Dangal was about two small town young girls wrestling their way to international glory. This upcoming film Secret Superstar has been produced by Aamir Khan, who will be seen in an extended cameo in the Diwali release. The film is about a teenager from a conservative family who dreams of becoming a famous singer.

Talking about the film, Aamir said “Both Dangal and this film are based on the same topic… That we look differently at our daughters. And probably we aren’t able to give the same treatment to our daughters as our sons. So, Secret Superstar is another film based on empowerment of the girl child.”

The Dhoom 3 actor expressed his thoughts about films for kids. He said,  “We should make more films for children. This film (Secret Superstar is for youngsters, but isn’t restricted to an age group. This is a family film… It has a wider scope. When our kids were younger, we used to show them foreign animated films which are only for kids. And that is definitely something we should do. We don’t make enough films for kids in India.”

After portraying the character of Mahavir Singh Phogat in Dangal, Aamir will be seen in a very unusual avatar in Secret Superstar. He says he and his wife Kiran Rao were both very apprehensive about him taking up the role he plays. “I decided to go through the screen test process. Then while doing the screen test, I had fun and this was a very unusual character, completely opposite of me. So it proved to be a challenge for me as an actor to make the audience believe in the character.”

Kiran Rao, who has co-producer the film, also spoke about not wanting Aamir to play the role. She remembers telling him, ‘Please don’t do this role as it will be very weird to do such a character after a film like Dangal. But when we went through the screen test, we laughed so much that we were convinced he can do this role too. But he wasn’t the original fit.”

Secret Superstar also features Zaira Wasim along with Meher Vij. Aamir looks very different in the trailer. This is for the second time that we would experience Aamir and Zaira’s camaraderie on screen. Earlier, the two shared screen space in Dangal. The film set to release on October 19, 2017, Secret Superstar is directed by debutante Advait Chauhan.
