Here's something to drive away your Monday morning looks! You must have seen Aamir Khan bulking up to play a wrestler in Nitesh Tiwari's 'Dangal' and one look at the latest cover of GQ India and we are pretty sure you all will be stunned. Yes, the man has lost oodles of weight and looks dapper in his new avatar.
In the latest edition the actor revealed why he hates being called a method actor. Aamir was quoted saying, "I don’t even know what method acting is. I never had a formal education in acting. I come from a film family. My father was a producer and my uncle was one of the leading film-makers of his time. So I grew up with films being made around me. My earliest memory is being 7, when I started sitting in when the writers and directors would come pitch stories to my father. I would just sit in a corner and listen to those stories, I must have heard hundreds, all these film ideas, from when I was 7 to when I was about 15. I’ve learned film-making by watching the whole process unfolding in front of me, ever since I was a child. A lot of people who aren’t from a film background or have not been to film school, they may not understand editing, for example. But for me, I used to watch it happening. I mean, even now I’m learning, but a lot of my learning in the early stages came by making mistakes, by making an ass of myself. So no, I’m not a method actor. For some reason the Indian media calls me that, I don’t know why."
Further Aamir even said that he was quite scared while playing his role in 'Dangal'. He added, "I told Nitesh, ‘If anything happens to me, everything is still on. You just have to cast a younger Mahavir and you’ll still have the film.’ Varun, Shahid – any actor would like to do it. Ranveer? Maybe Ranbir?”
