Mumbai, November 13, 2016: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan believes that all parents should support their children to achieve their dreams instead of pressurising to follow a path against their will.

Citing his upcoming film “Dangal”, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, which is based on father-daughter relationship and a father preparing his daughters to achieve his unfulfilled dreams, Aamir said: “I do not believe in such things. As a father, I always support my kids to do whatever they wish to do. I believe that parents should support their kids to achieve their dreams rather than decide it for them. However, the film is not based on my life!”

“Though in the beginning children go through an indecisive phase, instead of pressurising them to pursue their unfulfilled dreams, parents should help them to find a way to decide a career path. I was quite rebellious when I decided to become an actor,” he said at event to launch a song of “Dangal”.

Aamir, a father of three children, said that he encourages the individuality of his kids and is not very strict with them.

“It is a great change of perception and celebration of gender equality. This year two women won Olympic medals for our country and made us proud! Personally, neither I look at girls and boys differently nor I have grown up seeing such difference in our household. Both my sisters were treated with equality while growing up,” said Aamir.

Aamir and Tiwari, who both made children-based films earlier – “Taare Zameen Par” and “Bhoothnath Returns” respectively – said that in Bollywood, children’s film is an unexplored genre that needs encouragement.

“I would be more than happy to see that more filmmakers are doing children’s films. The kinds of films kids are watching are not appropriate for them. Since they do not have many options, they are watching them. I wish people were making more family films like ‘Dangal’,” said Aamir.

Facebook engaged in practices that “tricked” children and their parents into spending money in free-to-play games, the media has reported.

According to records that are part of a class-action lawsuit, and include internal Facebook memos, secret strategies and employee emails, the social media giant engaged in what was internally dubbed “friendly fraud” in order to maximise its revenues.

“And the company often denied attempts by parents to recover hundreds or even thousands of dollars until credit card companies ‘clawed back’ the money from Facebook,” the VentureBeat reported late on Saturday.

The story detailed the case of one 12-year-old boy who had spent nearly $1,000 in the game Ninja Saga. That case led to a lawsuit in 2012, the report added.

The time span for the abuses covered 2010 to 2014, but the documents related to these cases were not released until now.

An internal Facebook survey of users found that many parents did not even realise that the social networking giant was storing their credit card information.
