Superstar Aamir Khan brought Bollywood star power to Singapore on Monday evening as he graced the red carpet and attended a public fan engagement event at The Mastercard Theatres.
Khan was in town to promote his highly anticipated new movie, Secret Superstar, produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Zee Studios, and to meet with Sands for Singapore beneficiaries for a dialogue session.
The fan event, In Conversation With Aamir Khan, Live In Singapore, was a free to public session where tickets were distributed on a first-come first-served basis. All tickets to the session were snapped up within three hours when they were made available on Thursday, 28 September.
On Monday evening, the red carpet leading into the theaters came alive as Khan mingled with his fans, taking selfies and signing autographs.
Close to 1,600 fans got the opportunity to interact with Khan at the full house event where they had the chance to ask questions of their favourite star.
Earlier in the afternoon, Khan also spoke in-depth about his film projects and career with beneficiaries from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore American School, Tanglin Trust School, AMKFSC Community Services and the Singapore International Film Festival. He was speaking at an-hour long dialogue session organised by Marina Bay Sands as part of the integrated resort's Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Sands for Singapore.
Mahnoor Haroon, a 16-year-old student from Tanglin Trust School, said: “I am very privileged to have met such an amazing actor. I am very inspired by him, and intrigued by the Bollywood industry. The dialogue session also allowed us an insight to his life. His motivation as an actor is really clear through the way he speaks of his work. Thank you Sands for Singapore for this opportunity.”
Secret Superstar is the latest film from Aamir Khan Productions, following the immense success of its previous film Dangal which has become the highest-grossing Indian film worldwide. Khan plays a special role in the film which also stars Dangal actress Zaira Wasim.
Set for release globally on October 19, Secret Superstar is a musical drama about a 14-year-old girl who aspires to be a world renowned singer, and how she changes the life of everyone around her while pursuing this dream.
