Mumbai, Sep 28 : Superstar-producer Aamir Khan, fondly known as Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist, says playing the colourful character Shakti Kumaarr in his forthcoming film “Secret Superstar” is one of his toughest roles.

Aamir tweeted a video on Thursday that showed how he transformed from the sincere and principled Mahavir Phogat from his blockbuster film “Dangal” to the outrageous Shakti Kumaarr for his role in “Secret Superstar”.

He also wrote: “One of my toughest roles!”

The video opens with singer-actress Monali Thakur, who features in the movie as herself, saying: “I am in love with his look.”

Actress Zaira Wasim, who plays Insia, comments on his “weird shoes and jeans”.

Her co-star Meher Vij says the beard is different.

The beard is the result of lots of trials and tests on various male team members.

Choreographer Sanya Malhotra calls the character an ill-mannered person who does not know how to talk to people.

Hair designer Avan Contractor promises that the character will definitely “make you laugh, he will probably piss you off and maybe even make you cry. It’s something he has never done before. It’s a very colourful character. We had a great time designing this look for him.”

Talking about the character played by Aamir, producer and his wife Kiran Rao says: “He is a music director who is having a bad time. Such characters are not written on a daily basis.”

Aamir is also seen getting himself clicked with girls. He says: “He flirts with girls also. Shakti has all the bad qualities that one can think of.”

The film’s writer and director Advait Chandan says: “In his (Aamir) personal life, he is very simple and organic. I think for him to wear tight T-shirts… even he had a good time.”

Aamir then emphasises on the importance of understanding the nature and thinking of his characters.

The video shows how much the team was involved in creating his look.

Aamir says: “I had a lot of fun because the character is very crazy.”

“Secret Superstar” will be out on October 19.(ians)

Actress Alia Bhatt, who plays a spy in the forthcoming film “Raazi”, says she learnt a new definition of patriotism which is more about contribution to the well-being of people selflessly rather than just feeling proud and loving your country.

“I learnt that what we believe is patriotism is quite opposite of what true patriotism is. We say we are patriots because we are living in the country and we love our country, but that is not enough,” Alia told media here on Friday.

“We have to participate in activities that may not be beneficial to you but the larger population. During the journey of narrating the character, this is what I learnt which made me participate in things much more actively. What is the point of having so many followers on social media if I can’t use my voice?”

The actress went to a village in Maharashtra along with superstar Aamir Khan on May 1 to actively participate in ‘shramdaan’ in the process of water conservation.

She shared: “You know you don’t need to express your opinion all the time. You can feel for things and take action to solve a problem, instead of talking about the problem.

“When I went with Aamir, I understood that he is imparting knowledge to the villagers who need it, to survive and deal with the drought crisis of Maharashtra.”

“I think that is true patriotism. That is why action speaks louder than words. What is the point of having a take on an issue, if I am not resolving the problem?” she explained.

“Raazi”, a cross-border spy drama, is based on the book titled “Calling Sehmat”. The film is set in Kashmir.

“In the film, Kashmir is not depicted in a negative light. Kashmir is a beautiful place and I love it. It is really unfortunate that their tourism business, which is a big part of the revenue, is affected because of the incidents that took place. People think that Kashmir is not a safe place to go, but that is not true,” Alia said.

Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film also features Vicky Kaushal and Soni Razdan. It is set to release on May 11. (IANS)
