Superstar Aamir Khan has worked with Zaira Wasim in “Dangal” and in the upcoming project “Secret Superstar”. Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has admired the child artiste, telling she is the best actor in the Hindi film industry now.
The actor spoke about working with Zaira when he went to in Singapore to promote the movie, as per a report.
“The criteria of being a good actor is the same, whether you’re a child or an adult. You have to be the part, be the character and be able to deliver that. So the criteria is the same. I had a wonderful experience working with, whether it was Darsheel Safary in ‘Taare Zameen Par’ or Zaira in ‘Dangal’ or even Kunal Kemmu in ‘Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke’,” Aamir revealed.
“There’s a very famous quote by a Hollywood personality ‘Never work with animals and children because they steal the scene away from you and as an audience, your heart goes out to them’. These kids are so bright and intelligent. Zaira, for me, if you ask me who is the finest actor in the Hindi film industry today, I would say Zaira. She’s absolutely amazing,” he added later.
In “Secret Superstar”, Zaira, who hails from Kashmir, essays a teenage girl named Insiya who dreams of becoming a singer. The film, written and directed by Advait Chandan, is about how she fulfills her dreams by keeping her identity hidden.
Secret Superstar will release on October 19.
