Aamir Khan is going to surprise his fans as he will be seen in a never seen before avatar in SECRET SUPERSTAR.

Aamir will be seen slipping into the role of music director named Shakti Kumar. It was director Advait Chandan's vision to have Aamir Khan portray the quirky character of music director in this film.


The thought was backed by Aamir Khan who pushed the line and gave a series of a screen test in order to convince co-producer and wife Kiran Rao and director Advait Chandan.

While talking about the script of the film Aamir Khan shared, "When I heard the script from Advait I liked it a lot, then one day he said why don't you act Shakti Kumar's part. I said I can't imagine myself doing that role. Even Kiran said the same. I said I'll do a screen test first if I do well in the screen test then I can do the role."

Adopting a professional approach Aamir Khan nailed the part of Shakti Kumar in a series of screen test that left both Advait and Kiran Rao awestruck witnessing Aamir Khan in that avatar.

Advait Chandan who is marking his debut as a director in SECRET SUPERSTAR also shared, "Can you believe, I did a screen test of Aamir Khan for my first film!"

While sharing his experience Aamir Khan says, "During the screen test, I felt I was enjoying. It is an unusual character for me, very different from my actual self. So it was a challenge for me as an actor, to play a character and make people believe it's genuine. Watch the film to decide how do you like it."

Presented by Zee Studios and Aamir Khan Productions, SECRET SUPERSTAR is slated to release on 18th October, 2017.
