Mumbai: Aamir Khan, who is currently shooting for ‘Dangal’, only longs for the audience’s response to his movies, not any award, says his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao.
“Aamir always says it is the people who award me (him) and that I don’t need anything else. Audience’s reaction is most important for me… he says that all the time,” Kiran said here at the 17th Jio MAMI Film Festival.
Aamir is one actor who rarely goes to any awards event.
His forthcoming movie ‘Dangal’ will see him in the role of an ageing wrestler. He has put on oodles of weight to portray the role, but Kiran said he now has to lose the extra pounds to look young for a particular section in the film.
Talking about the same, she said: “It’s a film about a wrestler and the journey of his character. 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.
“So for that, he will lose weight. It is going to take a lot of work and we will start working on that from January.”.
Kiran also said there’s no cause of worry in rapid weight loss as it will be done with good care.
“It will be done in a systematic way. We have kept enough time and it will be done with the help of nutritionists and physical experts.”
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, ‘Dangal’ is scheduled to release on December 23 next year.
