13 Important Lessons Aamir Khan Can Teach All Pakistani Actors

By Iman Zia | 9 Feb, 2017

Aamir Khan has had nothing short of a remarkable career. He’s got a number of feathers in his cap and is more than an actor; over the years he’s become a socialist, a philanthropist, a producer and a director. The industry has changed significantly in the past decade, yet Aamir Khan has still reigned at the top as one of the most successful actors in Indian cinema. 

So how does he do it? What tips can he give Pakistani actors? Here are 13 lessons from the King himself.

1.  Make movies that are relevant.

From the revolutionary Rang De Basanti to the heart-achingly gorgeous 3 Idiots, Aamir Khan has built an admirable palette of films. Also how can we forget films like Fanaa

2. Invest in your role like your life depends on it.

You’ll always see him out and about in a different avatar for a film.

8. Keep your personal life to yourself.

When Aamir came on Koffee With Karan with his Dangal costars, it was revealed how Aamir only has a few friends.

9. Showing emotion is not a sign of weakness.

It’s a stellar strength.

10. And be open about your feelings. Wear your heart on your sleeve.

12. Never EVER shy away from taking risks.

Lagaan for example, was a risk for Aamir Khan as a producer to take on. Although he loved the script, no one else did, and it was very difficult for him to come to a decision. Yet he went with his gut and pursued it, and we’re so glad that he did.

13. Most of all, always follow your dreams.

He doesn’t mind compromising to achieve his dream, but never the dream itself.

If you believe in yourself and are a kind person toward others, aal izz welllll!
