Though Aamir Khan has always been hailed as Mr Perfectionist, nobody ever heard of him giving relationship advice to others. But now, looks like Aamir has taken his job of being a mentor to his Dangal daughters quite seriously.
Why do we say so? Well, Fatima Sana Shaikh recently confessed that she is comfortable enough with the actor to discuss relationships with him. Pinkvilla quoted her as saying, “He’s everything rolled into one, a friend, a guru and a guide. I can talk to him about anything. I can also discuss with him things like, I have had crush on someone, so please tell me what to do.’ Sanya (Malhotra) and I go to him for all our love related problems, and he solves them for us.”
Now that’s a never-before-seen or heard side of Aamir that we got to know from the lady. Sometime back, a video of Aamir giving piano lessons to the Dangal girls had become the talk of the town. Their bonding was pretty evident in that video. Moreover, Fatima and Aamir have also been spotted gymming together and recent reports have also confirmed that the actress has been finalised for Aamir’s next with Amitabh Bachchan titled Thugs of Hindostan.
Fatima, who has just bagged the role in Aamir’s next, Thugs Of Hindostan as his leading lady also spoke about how she feels about playing his on screen daughter first, and now being romantically paired opposite him. In an interview with Hindustan Times, she said, “I knew that people are going to think like this. I am an actor after all. Suppose if I hadn’t acted in Dangal, and got an offer to act opposite Aamir sir, I would have, of course, said yes. Even today, if I am asked to act opposite Shah Rukh Khan, I would stand in the frame immediately. When you have grown up watching these stars and are fond of them, you would definitely want to work with them. I used to get disheartened and sad (when I heard such things), because I thought, ‘Me playing his daughter in the film shouldn’t be the reason for me not getting the part.’ There have been so many instances of actors playing mothers, daughters and lovers. That’s our job, and you keep playing different characters from different age groups. So, I don’t have any issues.”
