Mumbai, March 14 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who turned 46 Monday, says he wants his friend and co-star Salman Khan to get married soon.
“I am looking forward to the day when Salman Khan would get married. He has so many good looking girls roaming around him,” Aamir told reporters Monday when he was asked who among the age forty plus actors he would like to see taking marriage vows.
Aamir celebrated his birthday by cutting a cake in the lawns of his Pali Hill residence.
Aamir forayed into acting with 1988 film “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak” after which there was no looking back for him. As an actor, he has given several hits like “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar”, “Lagaan”, “Sarfarosh” and “Dil Chahta Hai”, “Rang De Basanti”, “Ghajini” and “3 Idiots”.
When he decided to wield the megaphone, he came out with a magnificent story of a dyslexic child in his directorial debut “Taare Zameen Par”, which he had produced as well, and it turned out to be a big hit at the box office.
As a producer too he made successful commercial hits like Oscar nominated period drama “Lagaan” and “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na”. He also produced non-commercial hits “Peepli Live” and “Dhobi Ghat”.
His successful art of multitasking has earned him the title of Mr. Perfectionist in Bollywood.
Aamir says after spending over three decades in the industry his horizon as an actor has broadened.
“I am thankful for the love and affection that the industry has showered on me and my horizon as an actor has also broadened over the years,” he said.
He is also delighted to see female directors making their mark in the male dominated industry.
“I have worked with Kiran Rao (‘Dhobi Ghat’), Anusha Rizvi (‘Peepli Live’) and I am doing Reema Kagti’s new film and I really support them and appreciated them for their work,” he said.
Aamir had made certain promises to himself on his birthday last year and the actor says he has achieved some of them.
“I have learned Marathi to quite an extent, have started swimming but haven’t learnt to cook till now. And talking about spending more time with my mother, she has started living on the top floor, so I am spending time with her,” he said the actor who has signed Yash Raj Films’ “Dhoom 3”.
Currently he is busy with Kagti’s untitled movie, but took time off from shooting to spend his birthday with his family.
