Zaira Wasim, of Dangal fame, who will be seen sharing screen space with superstar Aamir Khan for the second time in Secret Superstar, says she had lots of fun shooting for the film.
Talking about the experience of working with Khan again, Wasim said in a statement: “I had a wonderful experience. I had lots of fun shooting this film. Most importantly for me in Dangal, he was a father figure and when we started shooting for Secret Superstar when we had his trials, I hadn’t met him for a long time.”
She says she was shocked when she saw Khan as the character Shakti Kumar from Secret Superstar.
“When I saw him after Dangal as Shakti Kumar, I was actually shocked. I had a lot of trouble during the shoot as I would burst out laughing reacting to his shots. But I had a ball of time over all,” Wasim said.
Secret Superstar is the story of a young girl who aspires to be a singer. Her dreams, however, face her father’s opposition. The film showcases the journey of a teenager who rose to fame anonymously by posting videos on the internet.
It marks Aamir Khan Productions’ eighth film; others are Lagaan, Taare Zameen Par and Dangal.
Secret Superstar is slated to release on Diwali.
