As fans may know, "Secret Superstar" stars Zaira Wasim as the protagonist who is a small town girl and aspires to be a singer.
The actor, who has played an array of characters in his long movie career, will treat his audience with a completely new avatar in his forthcoming film 'Secret Superstar, ' where he will be seen in the quirky avatar as a music composer Shakti Kumarr.
He expressed confidence that she would also make her mark in the upcoming "Secret Superstar" where she is playing the lead. Speaking to news agency PTI, Aamir said: "Anyone who has the ability to fill seats gets a bigger share in the fee". I haven't charged a fee for the last ten films. What is more, viewers are excited to watch the "Dangal" pair of father and daughter playing mentor and mentee in "Secret Superstar". "Which is that you perform for everybody and you take out your cap and if people like your work, they give you money and if they don't, they turn their back at you and leave".
As a producer, he said, "It does not matter to me if you are male or female or an animal".
"In films, there are two levels of payments that we have".
"I feel the industry doesn't differentiate on the basis of gender". Even as kids, we are told stories where gender roles are predefined. "There is no question about it", Aamir said. Secret Superstar and Golmaal Again are both Diwali releases; Ajay Devgn film is releasing one day after Secret Superstar on October 20. "I decided that I should do it and not be afraid of anything", the actor, known for his perfectionism, said. "We have equal status, in terms of gender, when it comes to a film crew".
In an interview with NDTV, Aamir said, "It's very important for me to trust the director". "I believe all people of the creative team should be paid equally and perhaps writer and director are the only ones who should be paid higher".
