Aamir Khan REVEALS His FIRST Monthly Salary Was Just Rs 1000, Actor Says, ‘Mera Jeena Mushkil Ho Gaya Tha’
Bollywood’s perfectionist Aamir Khan’s body of work speaks volumes about his versatility as an actor. He is regarded as one of the most successful and talented actors in Bollywood. But just like others, he too had his fair share of struggles and worked really hard to earn a name for himself. In a recent interview, Aamir opened up about his struggling days and revealed his first monthly salary was just Rs. 1000.

Speaking with Humans of Bombay, the PK star mentioned that although his debut film ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ received seven Filmfare awards, he was only concerned about the experience he gained while making the film. Aamir was quoted saying, “I don’t care about awards. I shouldn’t be speaking like this but I had doubts regarding the awards. I didn’t have so much regard for them. Winning them was not that big a moment for me, but the experience of making the film was a big moment for me. Mansoor is a very fine director, a very fine mind. I learnt a lot, my growth was very fast. I wasn’t just their actor on that set, I was a first AD as well. I earned Rs 1000 a month, and during that time, that was enough for me.” ALSO READ: WHAT!

The 57-year-old actor also spoke about how getting immense love and praise from fans and how he used to get thronged by people for pictures and autographs. Since he is a shy guy, he did not like the humongous attention. “Whenever I would travel to Delhi, I would stay in a hotel. As soon as I would enter the room, the phone would ring. First, the operator would talk to me and then her entire group of friends lined up to have a chat, and then the entire hotel staff and their families would come up to visit. Mera jeena mushkil ho gaya tha, so I started running away from it all since I am a shy guy and I am not good at taking praise,” Aamir further recalled.

On the work front, Aamir’s latest release Laal Singh Chaddha was a big flop at the box office. Following its massive failure, Khan announced he is taking a break from acting to spend time with his family.
