We as Indians, feel proud to have such talented and glowing gems in our country. Two of them who worked together for the first time ever are Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. These two legends star in the upcoming movie, Thugs of Hindostan and are always seen praising each other. These are the kind of positive vibes which the world needs right now.
Aamir revealed how nervous he was for working with Big B for the first time ever. He had mixed emotions of nervousness and excitement. But Amitabh Bachchan himself made it easier for him by his majestic and calm aura.
He say, “It was amazing working with him. I didn’t know how it was going to be working with him, would I not be able to perform properly. I was very nervous for the first shot, but it went alright so then I got comfortable with him. Amit Ji is very warm and generous person. He makes you comfortable. He’s very easy to work with. He has got a very dry sense of humour, you can’t tell whether he’s joking or he’s serious. So it’s confusing whether I should laugh or not.”
When asked about does he feels intimidated by his personality, he says, “He’s too well behaved and warm to feel intimidate anyone.” Well, that’s a nice statement coming from one superstar for the other!
Amitabh Bachchan was so impressed by his performance in Thugs that he thinks this is the best performance of Aamir’s life. He called up Aamir and said, “You’ve really caught that accent so well, I’m from that area so I can tell you. You’ve pitched the film perfectly. I feel like seeing the film multiple times just to see your scenes, which are my favourite.”
“So I was really thrilled and felt warm that he loved my performance so much”, Aamir said.
Speaking of memories, Aamir has quite bizarre memories with Mr. Bachchan. “There were few magazines which had come, in which they had put passport size photos of lot of people who wanted to act. So me, my siblings and our two maids, we were laughing at those photos, we were very young. And one of the photo was of Mr. Bachchan. Then we realized when soon enough he became an actor and people became his huge fans. I used to remind my sister, you remember we used to laugh. So, I told him this embarrassing story and that you went on to become the biggest star that India has ever seen. I’ve lot of other memories of me being his fan and watching his movies. I remember watching the film, I specifically loved him in Namak Halaal. I came out of the theatre, went back to the back office, bought a ticket and watched the second show again. I was constantly discussing my favourite scenes of his with him.”
Turns out Aamir Khan is the biggest fan of Big B. His charm and alluring personality is a magnet for everybody’s hearts! Being so down to Earth, generous and graceful are few qualities to name, Amit ji is a complete package of positivity and perfection.
Meanwhile, Aamir Khan is currently gearing for the release of Thugs Of Hindostan, which also features Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The film will hit the screens on November 8.
