Even biggies of Bollywood feel nervous while working with the Big B for the first time and Aamir Khan is one of them. They both did their first ever movie together, Thugs of Hindostan. Aamir was concerned about a lot of of things this time, one being if he could smoke in front of Amitabh Bachchan or no! And to sort this out he took advice from none other than the Badshah of Bollywood.
Aamir revealed he had gone to meet SRK to ask whether he smokes in front of Amitabh Bachchan or not and his advice to him was chucklesome.
Aamir narrates, “I smoke, but I was worried if I can smoke in front of Amit ji, should I first ask him or just start smoking directly. so I decided to meet Shah Rukh, I went to meet him and asked, ‘Shah, Do you smoke in front of Amit ji?’. He said, ‘ Yes, there is no problem, I smoke in front of him.’ I asked him, “Did you ever asked him, ‘he is like, No, but he hasn’t stopped me ever’, I questioned him, what if he tells me anything on smoking. He then suggested, “Pehli din tu thodha door se pee, uske baad thodha thodha nazdik jaa, do it smoothly”.
And funnily enough, this conversation reached Big B’s ears through Avinash Govarikar who was a part of the conversation.
Aamir then revealed, “While we were shooting in Malta, I went to Amit ji’s bedroom after shooting to ask what should we do now. I suggested to watch a film and while we were walking towards the theatre, he was asked me, ‘Aamir were you asking Shah Rukh whether to or not to smoke a cigarette in front of me?’ I was shocked and he looked quite amused too. Further I asked him, “Sir now that we are talking about this, what’s your answer to this?” He’s said, “Yeah you can smoke in front of me of course but it’s not good for your health.” Then I asked him whether he used to smoke. He said he did.
This new pair of friends are already tearing up Bollywood by their hilarious stories. Their movie, Thugs of Hindostan is set to release in theatres on 8th November 2018. Now that Aamir has got his answer, fans are even more excited to watch this thrilling movie hoping for a greater chemistry.
