Aamir Khan might have hailed from a film background but it wasn"t easy for him to make it to Bollywood.
For the uninitiated, Aamir is the son of renowned film producer Tahir Hussain. His uncle Nasir Hussain is also a film director. And his cousin Mansoor Khan made interesting movies like Qayamat Se Qayamant Tak, Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar, Akele Hum Akele Tum and Josh.
Aamir Khan told CNN's special edition 'Talk Asia', "My parents looked after us very well... we had a fairly sheltered life. I mean my parents were really against me getting into films. I come from a film family. My father and uncle were both filmmakers. And I faced hell at home. It was like there's no way you're getting into films."
He added, "But I don't usually listen to people. I just do what I feel like. And then when they realized actually it was more because they were concerned for me, you know. Every parent is concerned for their children. And they had been through this line and this profession is so uncertain. You know one day you're up there, the next day you're nobody and it's a really harsh profession."
Now that"s quite a revelation as we always thought it would be greatly easy for someone like Aamir. Interesting indeed!
