Aamir Khan: "Azad starts crying when he sees my films"

Aamir Khan:

Both the films focused on the problems of young kids.

"The objective of films is to entertain, people don't want to hear a lesson on sociology when they are entering cinemas, therefore I look for something entertaining that will also allow me to be creative and if it has a social message, then that is an added plus".

"I feel the industry doesn't differentiate on the basis of gender".

Aamir Khan plays a rather interesting character in his next film Secret Superstar. Azad starts crying when he sees my films.

"Mahavir is a 55-year-old in the film".

As a producer, he said, "It does not matter to me if you are male or female or an animal".

Emirates slashes New Zealand-Australia services

He expressed confidence that she would also make her mark in the upcoming "Secret Superstar" where she is playing the lead.

Aamir thinks there is no gender inequality in the film industry. I haven't charged a fee for the last ten films. That is assuming the film will do well. I follow the oldest method of asking for money in performing arts.

"I am glad that I got to work with him (Aamir) twice". That is something unique that I am adding to the film and that is what we describe as stardom. His role is that of a music director named Shakti Kumarr, who is past his career prime. He comes up with one movie every year or two and that movie becomes the Biggest Blockbuster of the year, it's a fact.

Aamir Khan's "Dangal" not only set a new benchmark at the domestic box office collections but has minted huge moolahs on the foreign shores too. What is more, viewers are excited to watch the "Dangal" pair of father and daughter playing mentor and mentee in "Secret Superstar". That is also a result of our patriarchal society.

"We don't see women as heroes". Adventure stories are always about boys who have leadership qualities and are the saviours. There has to be a paradigm shift in that. But ultimately in the economics of cinema anyone who pulls people in will be paid higher.
