NEW DELHI: Aamir Khan is someone who is known to deliver his hundred percent when it comes to portraying a character on the silver screen.

The actor, who has played an array of characters in his long movie career, will treat his audience with a completely new avatar in his forthcoming film ‘Secret Superstar,’ where he will be seen in the quirky avatar as a music composer Shakti Kumarr.

While talking exclusively to ANI, the ‘Dangal’ actor shared, “Shakti Kumarr’s character is very different from how I am personally.”

Talking about the challenges, Aamir stated, “The challenge for me was to not just to behave like him but to feel like him. But it was also very enjoyable as by playing Shakti Kumarr, I could do all the things that otherwise I don’t do or I am not allowed to do and so I want to thank Advait for this role.”

'Secret Superstar' is a film essentially based on music with the lead protagonist Insia played by Zaira Wasim being an aspiring singer. The young girl faces resistance from her father after which she opts to follow her dreams by posting videos on social media anonymously.
