Bollywood's Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan has completed 30 years in the film industry. He started his acting career with 1988's 'Qayamat Se Qayamat' and now is one of the most admired superstars of the Bollywood. Aamir's journey to the film industry and in the film industry is full of inspiring stories. He is currently working on his forth coming movie "Thugs of Hindustan". During a book launch event, while interacting with the media Aamir khan revealed that he was offered the role of Sunil Dutt in the biopic "Sanju"
He (Hirani) approached me with the script and I loved it. He wanted me to play Dutt saab’s role. It is a fantastic role and the story is largely on the father-son relationship. But Sanju’s role is unbelievable. So as an actor, I told Raju that Sanjay Dutt’s role is so wonderful that it won my heart. So in this film I can’t do any other role but Sanjay Dutt’s, which of course I cannot do because Ranbir (Kapoor) is playing it. So, do not offer me anything.For Aamir Khan, Ranbir Kapoor is a good actor and he is sure that Ranbir must have done a good job in the film. Khan who has already worked with the director Rajkumar Hirani in superhit films like 3 Idiots and PK, is eagerly waiting to watch the biopic said
“I cannot wait to watch the film now,”Talking about his finest good old memories with late Sunil Dutt with whom he really had a strong bond Mr. Perfectionist said,
He always sent me telegrams in those days to wish me on Diwali, Eid, birthday... If my film did well, he sent me a congratulations note.He also shared an incident which made a special place in heart for Sunil Dutt. Aamir said
During the riots of 1993, the Hindi film industry took a delegation to the then Chief Minister to stop the riots. Around 40 people went to the CM’s office. After that, we decided that since no immediate action had been taken, we will sit under the statue of Mahatma Gandhi near Mantralaya. All 40 of us came and sat under the statue and we decided until the violence stops, we won’t move from there. For the night, we decided to continue it rotationally. So on the first time, Dutt Saab, Yash Chopra, Johnny Walker, I and one of the film producers, we all sat down together at night under the Gandhi statue. We spent the whole night there... Of course, the next day people came and by the evening the CM took some action.After listening to the stories of Sunil Dutt and Jonny Walker the whole night Aamir Khan remembers that night till date. Well, this really shows how Sunil Dutt has inspired Aamir Khan with his strong and kind personality.
