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.”
