When asked if he has bid adieu to TV forever, he said, ''One can't say goodbye to any medium forever besides bad habits. TV is not a bad habit. It has given me everything I am today. Currently, I am on a break from TV for almost 4 to 5 years because my focus was on something else. I have already reached at a peak when it comes to TV. Now I am doing that for OTT. It is a new challenge for me. I'm taking baby steps. It will go on till I don't reach the peak. My focus is on films and OTT right now.''

Talking about his aspirations of working with actors, actresses and directors, he said, ''I would have taken 5 to 6 names if I was asked this a few years ago. But now, the kind of work I see, the range is so wide. I want to work with so many directors. I want to get inspired by many actors and work with them. The range is massive now.''

Revealing his thoughts on this, Aamir said, ''It has happened a lot of times when the makers have told me, ''We see you as a hero. We don't see you as a particular character.'' I used to tell them that I will transform myself. But they were not convinced.''
