Secret Superstar team has released a video on the making of 'Meri Pyaari Ammi' song. A bond between a mother and her child is the most pure one and Aamir Khan’s next promises to tap into this relationship.

In the new video, Khan categorically states that the mother-daughter bond makes the heart of Secret Superstar. Actress Meher Vij, who plays Insiya’s (Zaira Wasim) mother Najma, too, explains her character in the film, saying that the memories of her own mother helped her in playing this role.

“A mother is the real superstar in every child’s life. If the mother didn't make all the sacrifices, the children might not reach where they do. Many a times, we won’t give enough credit to our parents. We may think that we have done enough, but it doesn’t reflect in our actions/karma,” said Vij. 

The teary eyed Vij dedicates this role to her late mother, Lata Prem, as she saw shades of her mother in Najma.

“My mother was like a child herself. Najma, too, behaves likes one when with Insiya. There were quite a few scenes which I acted out keeping in mind my own mother. Behaving like kids, few little things.. There were some moments that reminded me of my mother...I’d like to dedicate this film to her,” said an emotional Vij. 

It was hard to keep the emotions in check and Vij hopes that Secret Superstar turns out to be a memorable film. 

“All I want is that it turns out to be a memorable film. That’s my wish and I have full faith that it will turn out that way. That’s my intuition,” said Vij.

Secret Superstar is set to be released on 19 October.
