Kicking off his 51st birthday celebration, superstar Aamir Khan on Friday said his biggest wish is not the success of his forthcoming film “Dangal”, but to buy their ancestral home in Varanasi for his mother.
“My biggest wish is not the success of ‘Dangal’, but to buy my mom her childhood home in Varanasi. I want her to experience her childhood home and want her to revisit the place,” Aamir told reporters on Monday.
The “PK” star said he was thinking about buying the house since a long time. “I was thinking about buying the house and thought if I could request those people living there… It would make me very happy, if I could have a home in Banaras,” he said.
Calling Varanasi “extremely beautiful and historic”, Aamir said he can’t wait to have a house there. “I’ve been to Assi ghat. Varanasi is beautiful and a historic place. So, If I get a home there, my mom’s home there, that will give me the biggest happiness. Let’s hope it happens,” he said.
Sporting a white T-shirt and a moustache, Aamir flew down Monday morning from the US. His wife Kiran Rao and son wished him first on his special day. “I haven’t slept yet. I was in a 32-hour flight. I was with Azaad (son) and Kiran (wife) in the morning when I came home. Azaad made this T-Shirt for me and Kiran got it printed. That’s his gift for me. Kiran and Azaad, they both wished me first,” the “3 Idiots” actor said.
Aamir said he will spend his birthday with family members. “I will spend time with my family during the day and in the evening, my brother and two sisters will meet at my mother’s place.”
Revealing that he quit smoking this year on January 1, the actor said his birthday resolution is to try new things.
Aamir also shared his childhood memory of birthdays, saying he could not celebrate it properly because it used to clash with examination time in March.
He is currently shooting for his sports biopic “Dangal”, which is set for this Christmas release on December 23.
