He also discussed his upbringing in a Muslim household and how he came to understand the cultural meaning of 'Namaste' throughout his speech. His first remark was off filming 'Rang de Basanti' in Punjab, recalling a fantastic experience.

The actor said in Hindi, "The people, the Punjabi culture, is full of love. So, when we went for the shoot of 'Dangal', it was a small village we were shooting in. We shot for more than two months in that location and that house."

"You won't believe it, but when I used to arrive there around 5 or 6 in the morning, as my car entered, people would stand outside their homes just to welcome me with folded hands and 'Sat Sri Akaal'. They used to just wait to welcome me. They never disturbed me, never stopped my car, nothing. After my pack-up, when I would return, they would again be standing outside their homes and would greet me 'Good Night'," he said.

Aamir said, "I belong to a Muslim family, I am not used to folding my hands in 'namaste.' I'm used to raising my hand (gesturing adaab, the way Muslims greet each other) and bowing my head. After spending those two and a half months in Punjab, I understood the power of 'namaste'. It's such a wonderful emotion. People in Punjab have so much respect for everyone and do not discriminate based on stature." 'The Great Indian Kapil Show' streams on Netflix.
