Unbelievable, this man tried to sabotage the career of National award winning actress Zaira Wasim who will be seen as a lead in the upcoming Diwali attraction SECRET SUPERSTAR
And the culprit is none other than Advait Chandan- Aamir Khan’s manager who is making his debut as a director in SECRET SUPERSTAR. In a heart-to-heart discussion with us about his debut, Advait made this confession that he tried to sabotage Zaira Wasim’s career for his benefit.
Advait says, “Zaira was decided before DANGAL, but DANGAL found her first. I was very upset about this. I tried hard to sabotage Zaira’s career before DANGAL, I wanted her to debut with SECRET SUPERSTAR. I went to Aamir sir, Nitesh Tiwari and made all efforts that Zaira won’t work in DANGAL.”
But it didn’t stop here after failing to convince Aamir and repeated plea to the director of DANGAL Nitesh Tiwari by asking him to cast someone else by showing him pictures from the casting folders, that paid no heed,
Advait tried to convince Zaira.
He says, “I told Zaira not to do DANGAL as it has a very small role for her. Playing the younger version of Geeta Phogat you won’t get much notice and I am offering you a lead in SECRET SUPERSTAR please don’t do DANGAL and debut with my film.” But in spite of all my efforts to Aamir sir, Nitesh sir and Zaira, DANGAL found Zaira first,” Advait concludes.
It will be needless to add that DANGAL fetched Zaira the national award for her performance and now Advait feels that Aamir Khan was right (he is a perfectionist beyond doubt) and DANGAL was destined to introduce Zaira who now plays the lead in SECRET SUPER STAR.
SECRET SUPER STAR stars Zaira as a Muslim teenager who aspires to be a singer. Aamir Khan will be seen in an extended cameo in the film as an eccentric music composer named Shakti Kumar.
Presented by Zee Studios and produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, Akash Chawla & Zee Studios, SECRET SUPER STAR is written and directed by Advait Chandan with music by Amit Trivedi. The movie releases on Diwali 19 October 2017.
