Aamir Khan declared he was taking a break from acting in Bollywood following the failure of Laal Singh Chaddha. The actor-producer recently celebrated a significant occasion in his life as a proud parent by attending an unique engagement party that his daughter Ira Khan and her fiancé Nupur Shikhare hosted for their family, friends, and loved ones. The actor recently shared his memories of the difficult times his family through in a poignant interview with Humans of Bombay. He disclosed that although his father Tahir Hussain was an excellent producer, he was a bad businessman since he was constantly paying off debts.
Aamir Khan recalled the difficult times and remarked,“I remember there was this film called Locket. It had Jitendra, Rekha, Kader Khan, like some of the biggest actors. At that point of time, actors would do about 30 films a year. So if you are not that famous a producer, you wouldn’t get that kind of priority. So my father would get pushed around. This film got stuck for dates and it took eight years for my father to make it.”
Aamir continued People would frequently call at my house and demand money,“Situation was so bad that we were almost on the streets.”
Further continued,“Unko problem mein dekh ke takleef hoti thi kyuki un logon ke phone aate the jinse paise liye hain. Unka jhagda shuru hojata tha phone pe ki ‘main kya karu, mere paas paise nahi hai. Meri film atki hai, mere actors ko boliye dates dein mujhe, main kya karu.’ (we were so troubled and hurt to see him in that condition. People, who had loaned him money, would call. They would start arguing and fighting as my father would insist that he doesn’t have any money to pay them off. He would question them saying that his film is stuck because actors are not giving him dates, what should I do?)”
The actor broke down in tears as he recalled how, as a 10-year-old boy, he had felt helpless about not being able to assist his father.“The thing that would trouble us most was to see our father like that. He was a very simple man. Maybe he didn’t have enough sense that he should not have taken so much loan,” he added.
Concluded further,“My father was an above average producer. His sensibilities were nice and he did choose good stories but he didn’t understand business. We can only draw this conclusion because his films have worked well but he was always in debt.” Stay tuned with box office World Wide for latest news, hindi box office news, Bollywood news, ott news, latest bollywood news and latest box office news.
