Aamir Khan is known for his perfectionist to play any role. Now the next challenge Mr. Khan interested to get a Grandmaster role in the upcoming film. Chess is his best pastime game revealed by Aamir Khan. A game that tests your intelligence and sharp brain.
The superstar has a very strong bond with chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand and they have even played a few games on different occasions. Yesterday, both of them came together with Arijit Singh and others to play chess and have a fun chat.
During the course of this chat, Samay Raina, the host, and fellow chess enthusiast asked Aamir Khan, “If there’s an amazing biopic on Viswanathan Anand in the pipeline, would you be interested to take the lead role?” To which Aamir Khan smiled and rhetorically said, “Is that a question?” He added, “That’s one of the easiest questions to answer.”
Aamir Khan then elaborated, “It would not only be an honor and pleasure to play Vishy (as he is fondly called), but it’ll also be highly exciting to get into his mind. When I play a character, I try to understand the person’s mind. And Vishy being a real person, I’ll obviously spend a lot of time with him to understand his mind and how his mind works.
I would also speak to his wife and his family to further understand how his mind works. And then hopefully, I’ll surprise Vishy when I play him on screen. So I’d look forward to that if and when that happens.”
Anand replies to Aamir Khan for Biopic
Anand says, “I promise you would not have to gain weight for the role” Hearing this answer, Viswanathan’s smart reply had everyone in splits.
Aamir Khan is meanwhile shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha. Bollywood Hungama had reported earlier in the day that the superstar resumed filming for this film today, in Mumbai. Directed by Advait Chandan, it is the official remake of Tom Hanks’ critically acclaimed film, Forrest Gump (1994).
