Guess who inspired Aamir Khan for his role in Secret Superstar
Abhishree Kulkarni  [ Wed, Oct 18, 2017 ]
There is not a single role that Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood can't nail it. And superstar Aamir Khan not so surprisingly did the same with his quirky character Shakti Kumaarr from his film 'Secret Superstar.'

Interestingly, Aamir was inspired by two legends of Bollywood - Jeetendra and Anil Kapoor - for this particular role.

Aamir mentioned about it in a statement, he said, "One of the secrets from 'Secret Superstar' is that in this film, I have used some lines that film actors usually use in their personal life and whenever I meet them. I tend to remember some lines from it, and I have used those lines while playing my character in the film. For example, when I met Jeetuji (Jeetendra) for the very first time, I found him as a very humorous person. He had come to visit Nasir (filmmaker Nasir Hussain) saab once and I was sitting with them that time. I was an assistant to Nasir saab then. Jeetuji said, 'Nasir saab, I have been offered a film which has a double role'. Jeetuji laughed and said I can't do one role properly and I have been offered two roles. Further, he said that it's perfectly fine, 'I'll do it well and said 'Buck up India'... The way he said 'Buck Up India', I found it so charming that time that it remained in my mind, and now also if we meet somewhere, he says, 'Son, you have a release now... Buck Up India! It will do very good."

Jeetuji's 'Buck up India' is something that stayed with Aamir and he used it in the film.

Now talking about his second inspiration, Aamir said, "One thing about Anil Kapoor I have noticed is that whenever he is done talking on call, he doesn't say bye once, he says bye about 15-20 times on call. So while speaking with him on call when I say, 'Anil, see you bye', he says 'Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye' in series. My character uses this trait also."

Directed by Advait Chandan 'Secret Superstar' also features Aamir's 'Dangal' co-star Zaira Wasim.
