Who would have thought Aamir Khan will be saying this? But that's something he has been expressing to his entire team time and again as they gear up for the release of Secret Superstar which is slated to hit this Diwali.
Dangal was a film that created history with the record breaking box office collection and the humongous love and appreciation it received from all around the world!
The film saw the superstar in a never seen before avatar, a healthy old man of 4 grown up daughters. Since he underwent such a risky transformation on screen, one would think that Dangal will be the most important film for him ever.
But turns out that's not the case. Scroll down to read more...

'Secret Superstar Speaks To The Youth Of The World'
While talking to the media in Singapore, Aamir had said, "While Dangal speaks to adults, with the message that we should treat our children equally whether they're a girl or a boy, Secret Superstar speaks to the youth of the world, and specifically the girl child.
"It's their story, through the story of a 14-year-old girl with dreams and aspirations. In that sense it's a bigger concept because it's her life and she's taking it in her hands."
Difficult To Compare Secret Superstar's Box Office With Dangal
The actor quipped, "In Dangal, you have me in the lead, an established star with so many years (behind me), but in Secret Superstar, Zaira is an upcoming actor in the lead, so it would be unfair to put that kind of pressure on her."
