Popular and influential superstar from Bollywood, Aamir Khan, was here in Singapore to promote his lastest film Secret Superstar at Marina Bay Sands.
Following the immense success of his previous film, Dangal, which has become the highest-grossing Indian film worldwide, Singapore is honored to be the first promotional stop for Secret Superstar which is produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Zee Studios, and written and directed by Advait Chandan.
Zaira Wasim, who reviously acted in Dangal, also stars in Secret Superstar and her character aspires to be a world reowned singer. The film depicts the current trend of social media, mainly Youtube.
Insia, a fourteen-year-old girl, changes the life of everyone around her. Set in a conservative environment, it is a story of how Insia succeeds in her dreams, hopes and aspirations to be a singer. Cool and charming Shakti Kumar (played by Aamir Khan) brings Insia a wonderful opportunity for her to showcase her talent.
What does the actor, director, and producer count as success on this film? “Honesty is the most important. When I find material that excites me, I don’t want to do something specifically tactical in order to make it successful. When I like something, I want to be honest with it.” Aamir Khan explains.
As it is not his first time in a film with Zaira Wasim, Khan stated that it was great fun working with children. He states that they give him positive energy, spontaneity, and a fresh and wonderful experience when he is around them.
Secret Superstar is also targeted towards a younger audience as young talents out there could have the chance to share their talents through a trendy platform and learn how to overcome obstacles that may come their way.
The film, produced by Khan and his wife Kiran Rao, is out in cinemas now. Be sure to catch it on Cinemas this Deepavali!
The Fifth Parlour would like to thank Marina Bay Sands for the invitation to this event.
