Aamir Khan to ring in birthday with Phogat sisters, family


Aamir Khan celebrated his 52nd birthday with media at his plush Bandra residence. Like ever year, the perfectionist cuts cake and had media interaction. He also revealed his birthday plan.

Aamir Khan started the interaction by thanking the media. "Thank you so much, my friends from the media for coming over on my birthday, my day is incomplete without you all”, he said.

The birthday boy was in a jovial mood when he teased the media, "I haven't got any birthday gifts yet, I hope you have brought some for me."

The actor is hosting a birthday bash this evening and the Phogat girls, Geeta and Babita flying down to Mumbai for the celebrations.

"Like every year, I will celebrate my birthday with my family and friends, my mother makes seekh kebabs for me every year. It's my all-time favorite," admits Aamir.

Apart from an artist, Aamir Khan is also a social crusader. The actor is currently focusing on water conservation and watershed management, across 30 talukas in Maharashtra.

"No no no politics is not for me I feel that there is a lot I can contribute staying in the creative field that I am in and as an artist, as a creative person, there is a lot I can contribute to society, to the nation, and I would like to do that from where I am. I don't want to change that," confessed Aamir.

Aamir Khan also expressed his opinions on nepotism, he said, "I feel that that's a very natural human emotion. But wait, are you asking me about nepotism in general or specifically to that issue? Let me speak about it in general: I think it's a very normal human nature to try and help people who you love and you care for, it's a very natural thing, it doesn't have to be someone who's part of your family, it can be someone who you care for so that's a very natural emotion. I try and make sure that in my work I try not to allow that to interfere because I think my duty as a creative person is to keep the audience happy, that is something I give utmost importance to, and I try not to bring emotions in my work."

Aamir Khan is looking forward to work with Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Thugs of Hindosthan’. "I've been a huge fan of Amit ji all my life and this is the first time, I am getting an opportunity to work with him. I am so excited, that I will get to learn so much from the legend and that experience I will cherish forever. I am really looking forward to that this year”, he quipped.
