When Aamir Khan speaks, everyone listens to him very carefully as he has been an inspiration to many in the industry. Although it’s been a while (2 and a half years, to be precise), and it will take a lot longer to watch it act on screen again. Due to the pandemic, his film Laal Singh Chaddha was delayed like many other biggies.
Recently, Aamir had a frank conversation about his life and how he is fully aware of the privileged status he has. He takes a step forward to say that there is “no difference” between him and the “gentleman sitting outside a temple in a village”. How? ‘Or’ What? Read ahead!
In a recent (not so) video posted by Aamir Khan Fan Club on Twitter, Mr Perfectionist talks about his mother, his privileges as an actor and more. Aamir said, “The credit goes to my mother; she brought me up very well. Whatever I am today, whatever good you see in me, it is because of the great influence my mother had on me. She is someone who is a great force in my life and who continues to be.
He also added: “It was a stroke of luck that I was born in Mumbai in a privileged environment, where my parents could afford me an education, and I had a protected childhood. If I had been born in a village where I had no resources, I would be sitting there.
Explaining further, Aamir Khan adds, “I often notice that there is no difference between me and this gentleman sitting outside a temple in a village. It was just a matter of luck that he was born there, and I was born here. Our rights are the same; our responsibilities are also the same, ideally we should look at each other. “
