Aamir craves for people’s reactions, not awards: Kiran
Filmmaker Kiran Rao (right) has said that her husband, actor
Aamir Khan (left) only longs for the audience’s response to his movies, and not any award. “Aamir always says, ‘The audience’s reaction is most important for me, it is they who award me. I don’t need anything else’,” Kiran says.
Aamir, who rarely attends film award shows, is playing an ageing wrestler in his next. He has put on oodles of weight to get the look of the role right, but Kiran says he now has to lose the extra pounds to look young for a particular section in the film.
“There is a section in the film in which he has to play his younger self, because mostly in the film he is playing an older man. He will have to lose weight for that. It is going to take a lot of work and we will start working on that from January.” Kiran adds that the weight loss will not have any adverse effects on the actor’s health. “It (weight loss) will be done in a systematic manner. We have kept enough time in hand and it will be done with the help of nutritionists and physical experts.”
