AAMIR HAS A CHILD-LIKE EN­THU­SI­ASM: SAKSHI

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.
