Smoking kills and according to Aamir Khan, it also has the ability to kill nervousness. For almost a year, Aamir Khan was not seen lighting up. However, with a new film coming up in December, the actor has picked up his old habit again. Apparently, it happens every time when his film is about to hit the screen.
“Before every release, Aamir gets very nervous and starts smoking. It had happened during PK, Dhoom 3 and Talaash as well. Now that he has got into the pre-release phase, his nervousness has been growing,” said a source close to the Rang De Basanti actor.
While talking about it, he also mentioned that the Dil Chahta Hai actor is not allowed to smoke in front of his son, Azad, as he hates to see his father holding the cigarette.
“Dangal is a very special film for Aamir. Giving in his 100 %…he has also gone through extreme body transformation for the role of ex-wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat,” the source added.
What might be another reason for Aamir Khan’s worry is his statement on intolerance which he made in 2014 at the Ramnath Goenka Awards. Although Aamir Khan later made a lot of clarifications that he has no wish to leave India, social media found a way to bully the actor by trolls saying they will boycott the film.
Aamir Khan was recently spotted at the wedding of wrestler Geeta Phogat. The superstar will soon be seen playing her on-screen father in Dangal.The film has been directed by Nitesh Tiwari and is based on the life of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who trained his daughters to make it big in the field of wrestling.
Dangal releases on December 23, 2016.
