Last week Aamir Khan attended Nasscom’s annual technology and leadership summit in Mumbai. During the event, Aamir talked about various topics ranging from IT, hatred, Jainism etc. He also revealed that he is technologically challenged and narrated a hilarious incident about it.
Aamir Khan reveals how Shah Rukh Khan is so technologically sound and he even has to get help to even watch a movie online. The actor told that in 1996 when Shah Rukh Khan bought him a laptop he (Aamir) was very dumb in this matter.
Recalling the funny incident, Aamir said,
Technology and me are so far remote. I will tell you one joke. In 1996, Shah Rukh Khan and I were doing a show together in USA and the UK. Shah Rukh is very much into technology, even at that time, he was up-to-date. Woh time par ek naya computer aaya tha, Toshiba. He told me ki mein le raha hu and it’s a latest computer.. He said I think you should also take this computer.
He continued by saying,
I had never used a computer in my life. Toh I said mujhe kya zaroorat hai computer ki toh he said nahi, tu samaj nahi raha hai, ismein tu office daal, yeh daal woh daal...mereko buhut samjhaya usne toh I said jo tu lega apne liye, wahi tu mere liye lele. So, poor chap, he went and bought two computers, laptop, laptop naya naya aaya tha woh time par. He got his laptop, he got my laptop and I came back to India.
But, funnily enough, Aamir reveals that he didn't even open that laptop for 5 years.
That laptop I did not open even one day and I m not joking. Uss laptop ko 5 saal ke baad mera ek naya manager aaya toh usne bola that sir aapka ek laptop mein dekhta hu hamesha pada rehta hai, can I use it and I said please use it and he opened it and woh on hee nahi hua.That is my connection with technology.I still ask my family to turn on the television for me even if I have to watch Netflix.
On the work front, Aamir Khan was last seen in Thugs of Hindostan which was the costliest Hindi film ever and turned out to be a big flop at the box office. He is yet to announce his next project. Till then you watch this video;
