While there were many highlights of the event, what caught our attention was Kiran Rao’s apprehension about Aamir doing the role.
Well yes, Aamir Khan revealed how initially, Kiran was against the idea of Aamir playing the music director, Shakti who is an extremely creepy man. She felt it wasn’t the right role for Aamir, especially after Dangal, where he played a father and an Olympic winner.

In fact, Aamir was also not very confident about playing the role. Aamir said, "I did not see myself as the character Shakti Kumar but still I did a screen test - it was a challenge for me to play this character. While I was giving the test, I enjoyed playing the character. When we saw the screen test all of us laughed and I decided to do it."
Adding to it, the lead actress of the film, Zaira Wasim said, "I was shocked to see Aamir Khan as Shakti Kumar and I kept laughing on sets when I was supposed to react to the dialogues."
Not just this, Aamir Khan also revealed about Kiran Rao's acting skills. He said, "Kiran is a fantastic actor. When she was filming Dhobi Ghat, she enacted Yasmin's part at times. I told her many times to play that part but she didn't hear."

The husband-wife duo added some spice to the event as they crooned to Aamir Khan's famous number, Aati Kya Khandala.
Speaking about Censor Board and the controversies related to it, Aamir replied, "As far my understanding goes, CBFC is essentially meant to grade films."
Aamir Khan also spoke about the recent controversy about children participating in reality shows. He said,"Honestly, I have not seen any of the shows. But it cuts both ways, there are kids who are talented and need that platform but then one should not over do it and rob them of their childhood."
Lastly, he also named the real superstars of Bollywood, which included names of stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif.
