Even during 'Dangal' the actor was really very nervous before the release of the movie, even now during Secret Superstar he is having sleepless nights. Both films are about the empowerment of the girl child, where as Dangal was about a father not differentiating between a girl and a boy child, Secret Superstar chronicles around the story of a 16 year old and about her dreams and aspirations.

Both try to put a spotlight on the issue of gender equality. But, in this film, the attempt is much larger.

Aamir mentioned in one of his interviews that, it is a bigger film than Dangal because the film is trying to say something that is much bigger. Dangal spoke to parents, that they should not differentiate between girls and boys. Secret Superstar talks to teenagers about their dreams, aspirations, challenges and constraints.

The actor also recently revealed that his character of Shakti Kumaarr is one of the toughest roles he has played till date as the character is nothing close to anything he has played earlier.

Secret Superstar is based on a teenage girl named Insiya, played by Zaira Wasim, who sets out to follow her dream of being a singing superstar under the confinement of anonymity.

Early screenings of the film have been garnering positive word of mouth for the Diwali release. Secret Superstar also received a standing ovation in its first cut screening from distributors and exhibitors.

Backed by content and driven by powerful actors, Secret Superstar makes for a perfect Diwali treat for the audience worldwide. The film is receiving appreciation from film critics who are hailing it as the Best Film of 2017.

Produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao under the banner name of Aamir Khan Productions, Zee Studios and Akash Chawla, Secret Superstar is written and directed by Advait Chandan. The film is slated to release on October 19. (ANI)
