AAMIR HAS A CHILD-LIKE ENTHUSIASM: SAKSHI
Actor Sakshi Tanwar (above) says actor Aamir Khan (right) — with whom she has worked in wrestler Mahavir Phogat’s biopic — has a child-like enthusiasm and he is very passionate about everything that he does. “During the script reading session and workshop even before shooting, he is involved in every step. He wants to know about things from the scratch like how a child would ask,” Sakshi says.
“While most of the actors will focus on dialogues and scenes to get the right emotion to perform, he (Aamir) wants to understand every aspect of that scene. I think such involvement and immense passion for his work makes him who he is,” Sakshi adds, who plays Daya Kaur, wife of Phogat, essayed by Aamir. However, she says she never “took the pressure” of acting alongside him. “Everything happened so fast that I did not get time to react much. During the shooting, I was so much into my character and was focusing to get everything right, so I did not think much or take pressure of acting opposite Aamir,” she says.
Born and brought up in Alwar, Rajasthan, Sakshi grew up with two siblings (a brother and a sister) and finished her graduation from Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi University. She earned fame for her character Parvati Agarwal of the popular television series Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki and later as Priya Ram Kapoor on another series Bade Achhe Lagte Hain. The film celebrates gender equality.
