Aamir Khan, who is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’, feels that debutant actresses Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Sheikh have had a tougher movie as a debut when compared to him.
The actor feels that the girls had a tough task as ‘Dangal’ is a much tougher movie than his debut movie ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ as the girls had to wrestle as well as master the Haryanvi dialect for the movie.
"Dangal is a very demanding film. As your first film, it is very challenging. They are not in their comfort zone. Both Sanya and Fatima are city girls. They had to play girls from a small village. They had to mentally and physically transport themselves to another world," said Aamir Khan to PTI.
"In Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, the demand from me was nothing. I had to play a guy from Delhi. I go on a holiday, romance a girl and fall in love. I was operating in my comfort zone," he added.
Aamir Khan feels that both the young actresses have managed to out-perform him in the movie.
"When I came into the industry, I came with a certain amount of passion. When I see these girls, I see the same passion and thirst. So I can't say that I am surprised. But I am very happy about it. Passion in them in amazing and they are so joyful. When you see the film you will see that they are 10 steps ahead of me," he said.
The actor is also impressed with TV Actress Sakshi Tanwar, who plays the role of his wife in the movie.
"She gives her shot at one go. By good take I don't just mean technically good, she feels the moment. Apart from acting, she is such a wonderful human being. She is warm and always happy. It was a dream to work with her and I would love to work with her again," he concluded.
In ‘Dangal’ Aamir plays former wrestler Mahavir Phogat, who trained his daughters Geeta Phobat and Babita Kumari, who’d go on to win gold and silver in wrestling, at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
‘Dangal’ will release on December 23.
