Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who turns 53 today, celebrated his special day with fans and well wishers.
Bollywood's Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan rang in his 53rd birthday with fans and close friends from the media. The superstar who is currently busy shooting for his next mega project 'Thugs of Hindostan', took a break from Rajasthan schedule to celebrate his special day with near and dear ones.
The actor cut the mandatory birthday cake along with his wife Kiran Rao and shared some moments with media people at his Carter Road residence in Mumbai. The actor said, "I'm grateful to my director Victor (Acharya) who allowed me to take a break for two days. I'm happy spending my birthday with my son Azad, Kiran and my mom, like every year."
Aamir's wife Kiran went to receive him at the airport to wish him on his birthday. He lovingly kissed his wife, a sweet gesture like never-seen-before. Kiran stood by Aamir’s side throughout the birthday celebrations with the media, which is rather an unusual gesture noticing that Aamir celebrated his birthday alone over all these years. She even shared heart-warming thoughts on her ‘beloved’ husband saying, “The things that I like the most in him are his sensitivity and intelligence for which I married him. The deep understanding that he has of people, his love for people and his sense of caring and empathy for people, I think those are the qualities that most attracted me to him. Also his incredibly sharp mind his ability to understand ideas; I really hope he doesn’t change.”
It is quite interesting to note that Kiran and Aamir deliberately came in media's limelight amidst their separation rumours, and they even went on to show their intimate moments on camera for the first time in all these years that Aamir celebrated his birthday.
The separation rumours began when Aamir was rumoured to be dating his younger co-star, but the kiss might just put all speculations to rest.
Interestingly, Aamir made his Instagram debut today, by sharing a picture of his mother. He said," Kiran is quite fond of social media especially Instagram, so I thought of it too. I posted my mother's picture on my birthday because she brought me to life and that's very special to me."
On speaking about his 'Thugs of Hindostan' co-star Amitabh Bachachan, who is news for health issues, Aamir said, "I shot with him last night. He has problem in the back and shoulder as he has a lot of action sequences in the film. After a long time audience will get to see him doing action. So definitely it is a challenging film for him. But he is coping up well.
"There are times when you have physical problems. He has injury on the shoulder and back. Day before yesterday he had lot of problem but he is better now."
"I was so much lost while shooting that I forgot the time. Suddenly his booming voice come on the mic and he wished me in front of everyone. I was happy. I was wishing he should wish me first and he did," he added.
Aamir even went on to comment about Shah Rukh Khan's views on charging fees. "Main toh fees leta hi nahi. Bahot saal ho gaye maine fees lena band kiya hai. Jo film agar kam kamati hai toh main kam kamata hoon. Agar jyada kamati hai toh jyada kamata hoon. (I don't take fees. I have stopped taking fees years ago. If a film makes less collection, I take less fees; if the film makes a big collection, eventually I earn more)," said the superstar.
When asked about his competition with Salman and SRK, Aamir said, "There's no competition with anyone but myself. I feel happy seeing other people's good work."
On asked whether he would return for another season of Satyamev Jayate he promptly said, it would be great but currently the entire team of the show is working on water conservation initiative Paani Foundation. Me and Kiran are active participants of the project. It's been three years working on it. We shall put a special show on Marathi channel to highlight the issue."
Speaking of his future projects Aamir said, "I'll let you know about it at the right time."
Talking about how he wouldn’t want to clash his 'Thugs Of Hindostan' with '2.0', Aamir said on Instagram live, “I hope ki woh humare saath naa aaye warna humei problem ho jayegi. Rajinikanth bahot bade star hain aur mein unki izzat karta hu.”
Speaking about the sequel of 'Sarfarosh', Aamir added, “It is one of my favourite films. 'Sarfarosh' part 2 bane toh sabse zyaada khushi mujhe milegi. ACP Rathore ka kirdaar parde pe laana chahunga. Maine John (director) se kahaa ki aap iska part 2 banaie. Woh ab tak kahaan nahi leke aaye. But I am hopeful we will make the sequel one day.”
Aamir concluded media interaction by thanking everyone for the warm wishes....
