| by

Aamir ‘Perfectionist’ Khan turned 51 today and we at iKarmik showed you throwback pictures that prove he is a perfect dad too.

Earlier this morning, Aamir Khan spoke to the media for over an hour, before rushing to his shoot. It is customary for Bollywood stars to meet and celebrate with the media on their big day and Aamir’s 52nd birthday was no exception. Here’s a dekko of how Aamir cut his 52nd birthday cake with the press.


Post the cake cutting and the pleasantries being exchanged, Aamir was at his usual guarded self, while answering some direct and not so pleasant question. Excerpts below;

On working next with Shah Rukh Khan…

“No. I met him twice in the last few months. Once at Ajay Bijli’s (owner, PVR) party, where we met after a long time. It felt wonderful spending time with him. Recently there was a get together. We are just meeting, just as friends. We are meeting casually, haven’t discussed work.”

On being trolled for making strong, opinionated statements

“I’ve always been careful I don’t think I’ve been careless on giving my opinions on matters. I’ve always been careful and will hopefully continue to be so but also continue to say what I feel.”

Psst: looks like he is forgetting the whole ‘India is Intolerant’ controversy, but it is his birthday, so we let it pass.

On the recent Karan Johar – Kangana Ranaut nepotism remarks

“In General, I think it’s a very normal human emotion to try and help people who you love and care for. It doesn’t have to be someone who is part of your family, it could be someone you care for. It’s a very natural emotion. I try to make sure that in my work, I don’t let it interfere. As a creative person, I am responsible to my audience and I give huge importance to that. I try not to bring in emotions in my work.”

On getting a gift from his mother…

We’ll simply let you watch this one.

On politics, especially after the ‘intolerance’ controversy which he & SRK became a part of…

“No. Politics is not for me. I feel there’s a lot I can contribute, staying in the creative field that I am in. As an artist, a creative person, there’s a lot I can contribute to society, to the nation. I would like to do that from where I am, I don’t want to change.

On the most exciting part of his 53rd year of life…

“This year I am very excited for one thing. I am a fan of Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) and this is my first chance of working with him. I am so excited. The kind of actor that he is, the level that he has, I am sure I will learn a lot from him and it will be a very memorable experience for me.”

On sporting the heavy moustache and beard as the final look for his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan (with Amitabh Bachchan)

“We are still experimenting with different looks. This is one among them. But this is not the final look.”

iKarmik says, Aamir Khan is one star who refuses to give a dud on the Box-Office. Right from 3 Idiots to Dangal, he has always upped the envelope of creativity and commercial viability and for that, he rightly deserves the tag of Mr. Perfectionist. Here’s wishing Aamir a very Happy 52nd Birthday! May he continue to entertain us with his content and use it for the betterment of the society in the coming years.
