She may have made her Bollywood debut with the blockbuster film Dangal along with superstar Aamir Khan, but Zaira Wasim has said that she has never watched Aamir’s films. "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,” said Zaira.
She added, "I cannot sit through a whole film. The last film I saw was 'Dangal'. In fact, I've not seen much AK (Aamir Khan) films. I don't think I've seen any of it,” said Zaira. Zaira played the young Geeta Phogat in Dangal which even fetched her National award for her amazing performance.
She will be next seen in Secret Superstar where she will again work with Mr. Perfectionist. Talking about Aamir, the 16-year-old said, "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.
Zaira further 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.”
The actress also said that things are similar the way they were back at her home before she became an actress. "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."
Secret Supertar, which revolves around the life of a teenage girl who aspired to become a singer, is directed by Advait Chandan and will release on October 19.
