MUMBAI: Bollywood’s Mr perfectionist aka Aamir Khan who has entertained us for the past 30 years through his mind-blowing acting skills and super hit movies has now opened up on how he was ready to quit the film industry.
Aamir recently opened up on his massive mood swings, his guilt about not being able to take out time for his family, and how this led him to decide that he is set to quit Bollywood, to make up for the lost times and his equation with now ex-wife Kiran Rao.
Aamir Khan was quoted saying, “I feel like I’d spent my life chasing my dreams and trying to fulfill 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,” he concluded.
Further speaking about his kids’ reaction, Khan said that his children were his biggest support and that they said, “You’ve spent more time with us in three months than you ever have, leave us alone now.” Concluding his topic on how he almost quit Bollywood, Aamir Khan recalled how his ex-wife Kiran Rao tearfully explained to him to not take such a hasty decision as cinema courses through his veins.
Aamir Khan will be next seen in his upcoming project ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, also starring Naga Chaitanya in an important role.
