Zaira Wasim: was never dying to work with Aamir Khan, haven't seen any of his films
Zaira Wasim, who made her acting debut along side Aamir Khan in 'Dangal', said she has not seen any of the films of Aamir Khan.
For her performance in Dangal, last year, she earned a National Award , however, she says acting was something she never aimed for.
"I was never so inclined to this profession. It isn't like I wanted to be an actress. I am still the kind of a person who doesn't watch films.
"I cannot sit through a whole film. The last film I saw was 'Dangal'. In fact, I've not seen much AK (Aamir Khan) film's. I don't think I've seen any of it," Zaira stated.
In her second Bollywood outing 'Secret Superstar', Zaira has teamed up with Aamir again.
"The equation has changed and obviously grown. Even before 'Dangal', I was very close to him, all the girls were, now he has become (like a) family," she said about PK star.
'Secret Superstar' is written and directed by Advait Chandan, Which is a story of a teenage girl who aspires to be a singer. The film is scheduled to release on October 19.
Further, talking about Aamir, Zaira said, "He is intimidating as a person. But it wasn't that I would die to work with him because I never wanted to be an actress. I never had something to be driven to (referring to acting as a profession). I am still exploring myself," she added.
Zaira said post her successful debut, things have not changed much for her and she still lives a normal life.
"People back home look at me exactly in the same way they used to a year back. Those are the people who helped me come this far. I can't throw tantrums in front of them. They are very proud of me for sure. "Not much has changed, but there's so much love. Every time I am out, people come and click pictures, they talk to me, they want to know what's going on (referring to her upcoming projects), but apart from that life is the same."
Zaira said she is aware that she can't afford to take the success to her head.
"I know for a fact how important being humble is. There is no definition of success, it isn't that I've achieved everything. If I take this to my head, I could fall. I know that this could be a phase and there's a lot I need to see."
