About the game, the actor said, “It’s a great game. In real life, I mostly play quizzes or online chess.”
Aamir Khan also spoke about his recent experience playing with ace tennis champions, Roger Federer and Djokovic. “I played very badly with Federer. I’m fond of tennis and I used to play as a kid but my father thought I was neglecting my studies. So, he stopped the tennis, but it had no effect on my studies. Azad is a big fan of tennis. He was thrilled to meet Federer.”
