Aamir Khan, speaking at the book launch of the Fat Loss by Nikhil Dhurandhar, shared the time when he carried his own tiffin box to Shah Rukh Khan's dinner party.
Mumbai: Actor Aamir Khan truly lives by his nickname Mr Perfection. From losing and gaining weight, changing hairstyles for characters to not relying on prosthetics, the actor aims to perfect every character he plays.
Speaking at a recent event, the actor revealed how the quest for perfection left actor Shah Rukh Khan puzzled. It all started when Shah Rukh invited Aamir to Mannat for a dinner party to welcome Apple CEO Tim Cook to the country. Incidentally, Aamir was on a strict diet for Dangal, where he was supposed to play a wrestler. Aamir Khan told the audience, "If you ever meet Shah Rukh, ask him this. He’ll tell you a good story. Apple’s Tim Cook had arrived with 4-5 people at his home, from America. So Shah Rukh invited us all to dinner. Gauri (Khan, Shah Rukh’s wife) told me to not leave without having dinner. I assured her that ‘Yes, I’ll have dinner’."
Turns out that was completely untrue since Aamir had arrived carrying his own tiffin box. He revealed, "She (Gauri) said the food is served. I told her ‘No, no. I have my own tiffin box.’ They were like ‘Yaar, you’ve come to our home and brought your own food?’ I told them it is not a formality, I am just following my diet. This was during Dangal."
And looks like history will be repeating itself. Khan is all set to begin work on the remake of Tom Hanks-starring Hollywood flick, Forrest Gump. The movie has been titled Lal Singh Chaddha and the actor reportedly needs to lose 20 kgs for the film.
