Secret Superstar: ‘Meri Pyaari Ammi’ shows mother-daughter bonding

The second song from Aamir Khan’s next production, ‘Secret Superstar’ starring Zaira Wasim in the main lead was released on net and it shows the strong mother-daughter bonding. Zaira’s mother in the film was portrayed by Meher Vij.

The song shows how a mother loves her children and does everything to protect them and make them happy. ‘Meri Pyaari Ammi’ is sung by Meghna Mishra while the lyrics were penned by Kausar Munir. 

The ‘Secret Superstar’ is the story of a small-town girl who wants to be a well known singer but her father stands as a barrier is fulfilling her dream. But she does not give up to her father’s objection. Wearing a hijab and hiding her name, the little girl keeps uploading her music on YouTube, and soon she becomes an internet sensation.

On casting Zaira in ‘Secret Superstar’, Aamir told news agency IANS, "Zaira does not have any connection with music, like she did not have any connection with wrestling while doingDangal, but she trained for wrestling for Dangal and for Secret Superstar, she has learned guitar, which is a big work. As an actor, we often try that whenever we play a musical instrument we play it accurately. But I think she (Zaira) has gone a step further, she has spent a lot of time with Meghna Mishra as a singer because she wanted to understand how to sing, they used to rehearse together. She actually learned to play guitar for all the songs where all she had to play it."

Written and directed by Advait Chandan, ‘Secret Superstar’ is slated to release on October 19.
