Aamir Khan Won’t Be Seen On The Big Screen For Two Years, Here’s Why?
New Delhi: Aamir Khan has become more vocal about his personal life in the recent past and has gone as far as to say that he expressed regret at not being there for his children when they were growing up. Now, the actor said that he is going to go on a short hiatus to focus on his family.
At an event in New Delhi, Aamir sported an all-grey look after being briefly spotted by the paparazzi in Mumbai some days ago. His hair and beard uncoloured, he chatted about his career, and where he sees it going in the next year or so.
He said, “When I am doing a film as an actor, I get so lost in that that nothing else happens in my life. I was supposed to do a film after Laal Singh Chaddha called Champions. It’s a wonderful script, a beautiful story, and it’s a very heartwarming and lovely film. But I feel that I want to take a break and be with my family, my mom, and my kids,” Hindustan Times reported.
Aamir added, “I feel I have been working for 35 years and I have single-mindedly been focused on my work. I feel that it’s not fair to people who are close to me… This is the time I feel I have to take some time off to be with them and actually experience life in a different way. I am looking forward to the next year, a year-and-a-half in which I am not working as an actor.”
Earlier this year, Aamir opened up about past mistakes at the ABP Ideas of India event in Mumbai and said, “I feel like I’d spent my life chasing my dreams and trying to fulfil them. But during this journey, I didn’t pay attention to my loved ones. My parents, my siblings, my children, my first wife Reena, my second wife Kiran, their parents… Perhaps I couldn’t devote enough time to them. My daughter is now 23. I am sure she must have missed my presence in her life when she was younger. She will have had her own anxieties, fears, dreams and hopes. I wasn’t there for her, I know this now. I didn’t know her dreams and fears and hopes, but I knew the fears and dreams and hopes of my directors.”
