Unlike many actors who bother about losing out on fame, success and stardom, Aamir Khan doesn’t fret about the same, he says, “It’s not ‘whether it will happen’, it’s ‘when it’ll happen’?” Aamir Khan has broken the rules of filmmaking by giving successive blockbusters.
“I actually don’t fear that (losing stardom). I am very clear that I am going to lose it all. I have no doubt in my mind that there will be a day when I will not have all this. So why fear? Death is going to come to all of us. Even creativity goes to a sustenance period and finally, it gets destroyed. It’s a natural process of Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. Everything which exists will get destroyed. I will lose all of this, definitely,” Aamir said in an interview.
The only thing that bothers the actor is whether or not he is rightly managing the complicated process of filmmaking.
“I fear what we have set out to make, can we achieve it fully? The process of filmmaking is so complex, that if you go wrong even in one step, your film won’t be what you set out to make. My constant fear which also keeps me alert—is just that. What we are trying to achieve have we achieved it? My biggest fear is that. We shouldn’t go wrong there. Will I lose my creativity? For sure I will. Will I lose my fame? Hundred percent I will. There’s no question about it. It’s a matter of time,” he says.
Despite of working in blockbuster movies like 3 Idiots, PK, Dhoom 3 and Dangal, Aamir believes that he can never be able be cross the level of superiority of his films.
Aamir said, “Stars are made through films. It isn’t the other way around. I can never claim that a film became a hit because of me. If you look at PK, Dangal, 3 Idiots, as a star the maximum I can do is bring in the first weekend. As an actor, I am contributing in the creative aspect. The big credit of all these films goes to the directors and the writers. They should get the credit or if a film doesn’t work it is the director’s responsibility too.”
Aamir doesn’t take any credit for choosing those films, he said, “It is my good fortune to be a part of these films. Imagine if I didn’t have Taare Zameen Par, Lagaan or 3 Idiots where would I be? My career is built on these films. The choice is mine, I chose well, but I shouldn’t be credited so much for that. “It’s like when you tell your mom to make kaali daal for a meal. When guests have it, you can’t say ‘this was my choice’. You didn’t make the food, you just suggested. The actual credit goes to your mother for cooking the food.”
Aamir Khan will be next seen in Advait Chandan’s Secret Superstar which also features Zaira Wasim. The film is scheduled to release on October 19.
