Aamir Khan is one of the finest actors in Indian cinema. He often prefers to choose movies with a social cause or important messaging behind them, as evidenced by his body work like 'Dangal', ‘3 Idiots', 'Lagaan', and many more.


Aamir Khan recently opened up in a recent interview about a time when he was contemplating quitting the business altogether as he was failing to meet his familial obligations. The fact that he couldn't spend time with his family was weighing heavily on the actor’s soul.


At the News18 India Amrit Rat 2023 event, Aamir Khan dove headfirst into the details of not being able to spend enough time with his family because of the amount of work. This realisation hit him nearly two years ago. He said, “Around 2.5 years ago, I realised I was so lost in my passion that I hadn’t given enough time to my relationships. I was disturbed and unhappy. I would have left films if not for my children. I was angry and irritated with myself (sic.)"


This news came as a shock, as it is unimaginable to think of Bollywood without Aamir Khan.

Aamir also revealed the date of his daughter Ira Khan’s wedding with Nupur Shikhare. He stated, “Ira is getting married on January 3. Nupur is like a son. I’m happy. I get emotional very easily. I’m going to cry a lot at the wedding. The family is already concerned about it."

He also talked about going to therapy. Saying, "When one is in stress or is going through emotional issues they should go to a therapist. It has helped me a lot in understanding myself better. I aspire to become a better version of myself (sic.)” 

On the work front, Aamir Khan has announced his upcoming film. Amid a short break from acting, the superstar confirmed returning to the big screen with a project titled Sitare Zameen Par. Aamir reacted to the title's similarity with his film, Taare Zameen Par. 

Aamir said during the interview, "I have not spoken about it publicly and I won't be able to say much now also. But I can tell the title. The title of the film is Sitare Zameen Par. You must have remembered my film Taare Zameen Par and the name of this film is Sitare Zameen Par because we are moving 10 steps ahead with the same theme. Taare Zameen Par was an emotional film, this film will make you laugh. That film made you cry this one will entertain you."
