A week back, we had reported about Aamir Khan’s secret mission of sorts since the actor is on a month-long trip to Australia without anyone having a clue to what his purpose is. But interestingly, we have now come to know that his hush-hush trip has got something to do with dancing — he is currently getting trained to perform “a special, peculiar kind of dance form.”

“No one is aware of this but it’s true that Aamir is learning a dance form in which you can see traces of tap dancing and ballet. Since he plays a circus gymnast in Dhoom:3, he’ll be seen doing a trademark movement in various songs and action scenes. And since it requires a lot of precision, he is getting trained extensively,” says an industry insider.

Aamir, who has been in Australia for about 15 days now, is expected to spend another fortnight there before heading back to India. “Once he comes back, he is supposed to shoot for a dance number which will see him doing the movement that he’s training for,” adds the insider. While Aamir couldn’t be reached for a comment, his spokesperson says, “We are not allowed to divulge anything on the film yet.”

The Vijay Krishna Acharya-directed action-thriller also stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff  and Abhishek Bachchan, among others. The film is scheduled for a Christmas release this year.
