Aamir Khan, one of the Khans of Bollywood, while addressing the students of Bennett University recently recalled his struggling days in the industry. The actor shared with the students how his career started sinking after his first film 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak'. Aamir revealed that the media tagged him as 'a film wonder' after his films made a bang at the box office. Aamir said "After Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, I signed about 8 or 9 films based on stories because the director was all new and unknown at the time. These movies flopped and I was called me 'a film wonder' by the media. My career was sinking. It felt like I was in quicksand. I was so sad. I used to come home and cry".
Aamir further said that "The People I wanted to work with were not interested in signing me and the movies I was doing and not making money at the box office. After facing a very bad phase, I promised myself that I would not sign any film until I'll get convinced about it".
"At the time, I felt that I was working with people I could not connect with. I didn't know how to get out of that situation. I had committed to a few films, so I wouldn't do them. I did those films, but I was sad. Aamir told Hindustan Times in an interview that while I was satisfied (with the script), I had promised not to do a film by myself. Aamir will be seen in the film 'Lal Singh Chadha' which is an official remake of the Hollywood film Forest Gump.
