DNA reports that Aamir Khan will play a 40-minute extended cameo in his next production, Advait Chandan’s directorial debut, Secret Superstar.Last year, when Aamir unveiled the teaser of the film, we saw him in an outlandish avatar. He sports a ‘rockstar’ look in the film, wearing a pink ganji that reads ‘Sexy…something’ and a spiked and colored hairdo. He is surrounded by two sidekicks in shiny silver gear and blonde wigs. Khan seems to be a music producer, given his look and his firm belief of there being an objective definition of good music.
While in Dear Zindagi, Shahrukh Khan played a life coach to Alia’s character, in (Secret) Superstar, which is about a young girl aspiring to be a singer, Aamir plays a musician, who will be instrumental in giving her a platform. Zaira Wasim, who played young Geeta Phogat in Dangal, plays the singer.

Secret Superstar is directed by Chandan, who has served as an assistant director on acclaimed films like Reema Kagti’s romantic ensemble Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd, Khan’s emotional drama Taare Zameen Par and his wife Kiran Rao’s directorial debut Dhobi Ghat. (Secret) Superstar is slated to release on 4 August.
Aamir is currently occupied with shooting for Vijay Krishna Acharya’s period drama Thugs of Hindostan alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Shraddha Kapoor. In an interview, he said few lines about the movie, that were “In Hindi cinema, there have been female superstars right from Madhubala ji to Waheeda Rehman ji to Sridevi to Madhuri to Kajol to Juhi to Katrina and Deepika. We have had amazing female superstars. This film is about superstar but she is a girl and we don’t get to see this often.
