Aamir Khan admits to being scared of losing stardom

via filmfares
Aamir Khan has never shied away from doing what’s needed for the role, whether it’s getting a six pack for Ghajini or developing a paunch for Dangal. He recently shared that while he does feel a high pushing the envelope, he does feel scared about losing his stardom too. 

"I won't deny that I never get scared of losing stardom. I remember what happened during Dangal. When I heard the story, I was extremely impressed and I knew that I have to do this film. But then I thought that I have just done Dhoom 3 and PK, and have six-packs and star-image. If I will do this film right now, then I will become old and fat. What my fans will think? I hope I don't lose my fan-following. I didn't have guts to change my image. Mahavir is shown to be 55-year-old in the film. I am 52 in real life. So, there is less difference between us. We are too close. But my fans don't know that as they see me like I am some 30-year-old. So, I had even told the makers that I have liked the film but I will do it after 10 years when I grow a little old. They agreed to that too."

Thankfully, he changed his mind "As a creative person what I want, I want. I was so fascinated by the story of Dangal that I ultimately decided to should go for it. When my emotional connect with the story is so strong then I defy all logic and practicality and follow my emotional instinct. This has happened many times with me," he mentioned.
