No, we are about to tell you what diet ace actor Aamir Khan is following. We are merely talking about what is keeping Aamir busy these days. And no, it's not the promotion of PEEPLI [LIVE] or either of his forthcoming films DHOBI GHAAT and DELHI BELLY that is keeping Aamir Khan occupied! It's his passion for learning Marathi!
Days after his good friend, 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar showed us a glimpse of his knowledge of Marathi for his film KHATTA MEETHA, it is now Aamir's turn and it's his love for learning Marathi that is his latest passion and hobby. Aamir gave us a hint that he has started learning the language when he spoke in Marathi at the Majha Sanman Award. The actor tweeted "Just delivered my first speech in Marathi, full of errors," thus admitting that his Marathi was not up to the mark but he did manage to win many a hearts after his speech.
Naturally, Aamir being a perfectionist has now taken upon himself the task of learning the language of the state that has given him international repute, Maharashtra, and it's not just him but also his family that is learning Marathi.
He is keen on learning cooking from his mother and also expressed his desire to learn singing. When asked how he rates himself as a singer, the actor who has a chartbuster in form of the still popular "Aati Kya Khandala" to his credit said that he was just an average singer and knows nothing about the intricacies of singing.
Well, knowing Aamir we are sure that he will not only learn to speak Marathi fluently but will also turn out to be great cook and an excellent singer. Koi Shaq!
