She then records her singing video online, which is seen by Aamir Khan’s character who calls the song ‘superhit’. He is seen urging the audience to “like” it if we enjoyed, or else “change our taste.”

‘Secret Superstar’ is the directorial debut of his former manager Advait Chandan, and stars Zaira Wasim as the aspiring singer. The young actress has played Aamir’s ‘Dangal’ screen daughter as the younger version of Geeta Phogat.
The movie is slated to release on August 4 next year and will be clashing with Omung Kumar’s Bhoomi which marks Sanjay Dutt’s Bollywood comeback.
