Zaira is a perfectionist: Aamir Khan
The actor admits to being impressed by the young actress' approach to her performances
He is known as Bollywood's Mr.Perfectionist, but Aamir Khan is impressed by the perfectionism that young actress Zaira Wasim pursues for her on screen characters - whether it is for wrestling in Dangal or learning about music for the forthcoming Secret Superstar.
Aamir, who has produced and acted in Secret Superstar, said in a statement, "Zaira does not have any connection with music, like she did not have any connection with wrestling while doing Dangal, but she trained for wrestling for Dangal, and for Secret Superstar, she has learned guitar, which is a lot of work."
He also went on to add, "As an actor, whenever we have to act like we are playing a musical instrument, we try to mime it accurately. But, she has gone a step further; she actually learned to play guitar for all the songs where all she had to play it."
In Secret Superstar, Zaira, who hails from Kashmir, plays a teenage girl named Insia who dreams of becoming a singer. The film, written and directed by Advait Chandan, is about how she fulfills her dreams by keeping her identity hidden.
Produced under the banner name of Aamir Khan Productions, Zee Studios, and Akash Chawla, the movie will release on October 19.
