Politics not for me: Aamir
Superstar Aamir Khan, who turned 52 on Tuesday, says he will never join politics but will always be vocal about important issues. The Dangal star says he has never given an opinion carelessly and will continue to speak his heart out but in a careful manner.
"I've always been careful, I don't think I've been careless in giving my opinion on matters. I've always been careful and will hopefully continue to be so but also continue to say what I feel," Aamir said.
Aamir says he will never venture in politics as he feels he can contribute a lot more within his space of being an artist.
"No, politics is not for me. I feel there's a lot I can contribute, staying in the creative field that I am in," the actor says when asked if he will join politics. As an artist, a creative person, there's a lot I can contribute to society, to the nation. I would like to do that from where I am, I don't want to change that," he said.
The actor also says his meeting with Shah Rukh Khan was "casual" and the duo did not discuss any projects. Recently, Shah Rukh tweeted a picture along with Aamir and the team of Netflix, which started speculation that both of them might be coming on board for a project. "No, I met him (Shah Rukh) twice in the last few months. Once at Ajay Bijli's party, where we met after a long time. It felt wonderful spending time with him.
"Recently there was a get together at his place. We are meeting casually, just as friends. We haven't discussed work," Aamir said.
The actor, is currently gearing up for his forthcoming Thugs of Hindostan.
There were reports that the actor has been approached for a biopic on Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to fly into space. The film is reportedly titled be Saare Jahan Se Achcha, as a tribute to Sharma's description of India from the space.
But Aamir says he is only working on Thugs of Hindostan now and hasn't signed anything else. The actor, however, is excited to work with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Thugs of Hindostan.
"This year I am very excited for one thing. I am a fan of Amitji and this is my first chance of working with him. I am so excited... The kind of actor that he is, the level that he has... I am sure I will learn a lot from him and it will be a very memorable experience for me," Aamir says.The actor denied that the heavy moustache that he is sporting these days is the final look for the movie. "We are still experimenting with different looks. This is one among them. But this is not the final look."
