Behind the Scenes of Bollywood

Aamir Khan, a household name throughout India, an actor known for versatility and moreover for a kind heart. Be it PK, Satyamev Jayate, or Dhoom 3, he never fails to deliver to the audience. We at Symbiosis International University were extremely fortunate to have an artist of such caliber address us and converse with us about Bollywood, his approach towards his art and a lot more.

The lecture began with him speaking about how only creative people can touch the hearts of the audience and how artists are so necessary to society. Proceeding further on the topic of creativity he says “creative change is the most exciting in the industry”.

We all know about his brilliant performance and how well the movies perform when it comes to the audience. When asked about this, he says how he doesn’t put too much thought into box office numbers and focuses on giving his absolute best and that is where he derives his satisfaction from, all other forms of review come later. On the matter of selecting scripts, he says over the years it has become a matter of instinct.

A student attendee Maansi Anand from the batch of 2023, says “watching him speak was inspiring as an artist and aspiring writer. His work ethic motivates you to put a little more effort in all that you do.”

It truly is inspiring to see such an artist be so humble and eager to share the knowledge he possesses and we at Symbiosis are truly grateful for the time we had with the one and only Aamir Khan.
