Aamir Khan has garnered an increasing number of followers after the success of his films Dangal and Secret Superstar in China. Talking about the same to a leading Indian daily, he said, “I’ve never even ever felt like India’s superstar! I’m just someone who is excited about my work, and it thrills me that people all over the world enjoy my work. In my head, I’m just a creative person.”
Aamir is currently occupied with the shoot of Thugs of Hindostan which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh. In an interaction with a leading Indian daily, Aamir spoke about his children – Junaid, Ira and Azad Rao Khan.
Aamir said, “My son Junaid (24) has just started interning with me. Not just in my films, but in everything I do, including my NGO Paani Foundation. My daughter Ira (20) is studying liberal arts at the Utrecht University in Netherlands. She’s a fantastic painter. I keep asking her to pursue it seriously. But, bachchey sunte nahi hain. My youngest, Azaad, is six now. He’s totally mast. He likes spending time with me, but I suspect that he doesn’t miss me much even when I can’t.”
Previously, he had said about son Azad , “I only do two things for him. I used to take him every day at 4 pm to play tennis. I’d sit for one hour while he’d play. Whenever I’m in Mumbai, I make sure I’m at home latest by 7 pm so that I’ve dinner with him or rather he sits with me and has his dinner.”
