Like Dangal, Secret Superstar also based on girl child empowerment: Aamir Khan

At the trailer launch of Secret Superstar, Khan spoke about how his latest film talks about the fact that we look differently at our daughters.


Aamir Khan, whose last film Dangal narrated the story of two girls growing up to become formidable wrestlers, says his upcoming movie Secret Superstar, a musical drama, is yet another film on the empowerment of the girl child.

The film revolves around a teenager who dreams of becoming a famous singer.

"Both Dangal and this film are based on the same topic... That we look differently at our daughters. And probably we aren't able to give the same treatment to our daughters as our sons. So, Secret Superstar is another film based on empowerment of the girl child," Aamir said when asked about the message that Secret Superstar carries for the society.

The actor was present at the trailer launch of the film on Wednesday, 2 August.

Aamir, a father of three, feels the Indian film industry must make more films for children.

"We should make more films for children. This film (Secret Superstar) is for youngsters, but isn't restricted to an age group. This is a family film... It has a wider scope. When our kids were younger, we used to show them foreign animated films which are only for kids. And that is definitely something we should do. We don't make enough films for kids in India," Aamir said.

Secret Superstar also features Zaira Wasim along with Meher Vij. The film will be released on 20 October.
