“I’m a huge fan of Mohanlal; He’s an amazing actor, from whom there are lot of things to learn; I’m happy and honoured to have him - Lalettan, as he’s fondly called - with us,” Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan was at a loss of words to describe Mohanlal with whom he shared the dais for a promotional event in Kochi recently. The Mr Perfectionist made clear his respect for the Malayalam actor on the occasion.

Elaborating on the people he came across during his talk show ‘Satyamev Jayate’, Aamir termed it an exciting journey. “It was enriching to listen to them. Amazing people, coming from different socio-political and economic circumstances. Unearthing the issues and people was an eye-opener for me. A major learning experience,” he quipped.

And what was his way of dealing with issues? “You need to approach issues with love? When you listen to some issues, you may get upset; but you need to face them with love, rather than anger. People who come to the show talk about their problems, they  want to express themselves before you,” he pointed out.

On asked whether these experiences have changed his outlook towards the society and cinema in general, the actor said, “In a way, it broke me on many levels; At the same time it built me at a different level. It was a huge learning experience. When you approach the topic of female foeticide, you have a feeling that it’s largely among the poor, rural mothers; that was a pre-conceived notion. When I actually delved into the issue, I realised I was wrong. The richer you are, the more educated and the more urban you are, it’s more likely that you may indulge in female foeticide. These experiences and realisations broke me at many levels; it was like a therapy. I used to cry a lot for no reason; it was bizarre; it still happens to me at times. At the same time, at a spiritual level it built me. I was moved when a 70-year-old mother was talking about those who killed her son. It’s because of the spirit of such people that India survives,” Aamir feels.
