Recently Aamir Khan revealed that despite being from a film family, nobody at home wanted him to act in movies. They wanted him to pursue career in engineering. Aamir said, “At that time almost everyone felt, film industry was not a good place to be. My own family, uncle Nasir sahab (Nasir Hussain) and father (Tahir Hussain) were telling me, ‘No. Don’t go in films’. Both filmmakers were telling me not to go in films. I was very conscious of one thing. I never wanted Nasir sahab and Abba jaan to ever feel that ‘Now it is our responsibility to launch Aamir. So, I was doing my own thing, I used to go to FTII, do diploma films over there. But I never ever even by mistake used to mention to chacha jaan or to abba jaan about me wanting to act. I didn’t want to come close to it.”

Aamir started acting with a short film ‘Paranoia’ directed by Aditya Bhattacharya. He asked him to feature in it as an actor, assistant director, and spot boy. And that experience made him interested in filmmaking. Aamir said it was Shabana Azmi who watched the movie and praised him. “Nobody in my house knew I had gone to shoot the film. I used to pretend that I was going for hockey match, but used to go for shooting. She said, ‘Oh you are Tahir sahab’s son! I must tell him you’re a fantastic actor.’ I said, ‘No, You can’t tell him that.’ She said, ‘You are a fantastic actor, you should be acting’. I felt so good.”
