WEB DESK: Everyone knows how Aamir Khan is always worried to perfection. He makes sure everything stay in order and make sense before hitting on big screens. And, yes he is doing it successfully from decades.
Mr. Perfectionists has a different mind and unique approach which his work shows. He is a popular star globally also shows from his checks which are often hefty than many females actresses.
His mindset on ‘being paid’ for a film is probably diverse from other actors. He enable media with it during an interaction while promoting his next flick ‘secret superstar’. He said,“I don’t charge a fee. I haven’t charged a fee for the last 10 films. Fortunately all my films have been a hit, if not then I am the one who is hit. I am the last one to be paid after the producer, investors and if there is profit then I get share of it.”
When asked if Zaira Wasim is being paid more than him since his role is a supporting one, he revealed,“I probably don’t have smaller pay cheque than Zaira Wasim. There are two levels of pay cheques. There are just two or three people in the team who can pull people in the theatres. That’s what we describe as stardom. That’s what Salim Javed did as writers and AR Rahamn as musician. But if u have the ability to pull the crowd in theatres then you can get paid more than me. And trust me when Zaira does that, she will get paid more than me. Anyone who has that ability, who will be able to fill in more seats, will get paid more. It does not matter you are male or female or even an animal. If you benefit me as a producer I am ready to pay.”
He also maintained that industry doesn’t differentiate between males and females. They got checks according to their capabilities,“The industry doesn’t differentiate between genders. There are a lot of women directors like Reema Kagti, my wife Kiran (Rao) and so many. I don’t think they are paid differently or treated differently.”
