Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar has garnered immense love at the box office. The film, which has Aamir Khan in an extended cameo, has turned out to be a star at the theaters and managed to mint Rs 2.50 crore on Tuesday, taking the total collection to Rs 36 crore.
The film has been able to give a good fight to Golmaal Again and has stayed stable even though the Rohit Shetty film is being much talked about. This Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim starrer has freshened up the flavour of Dangal, the film they had first appeared in together as father-daughter. In fact, after the success of Dangal, Zaira and Aamir’s this project was being eyed by the audience and others from the film fraternity. It did manage to stand to everyone’s expectationy.
When Zaira was asked to talk about her experience of working on ‘Secret Superstar’, she said, “I have this thing that until and unless I am not convinced about something I don’t do it, I just can’t do it even if I try. So if I am not convinced, I don’t sing. Even if people want me to sing for fun, I won’t do it because I know I am not good at it.”
Zaira too agrees that she has received much more appreciation and love from people for Secret Superstar, “I’ve got more messages from people for this film than ‘Dangal’. People have given immense love to the film. My best birthday gift is the love and appreciation my film is getting. I am very happy and overwhelmed. In fact in Jammu, theatres are running houseful, my friends couldn’t get tickets.”
While people thought Aamir Khan’s role was just not enough for the silver screen, they have not been able to stop themselves from praising Zaira.
Secret Superstar, released a day ahead of Diwali, on October 19. Now, it is to be seen if this Aamir Khan project remains strong throughout the week.
