I take up smoking when my films approach release: Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan plays former wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in Dangal.

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who gave up smoking early this year, has again given in to the habit, courtesy pre-release nervousness for his much-awaited film Dangal. The actor, however, isn’t happy with the development.

The 51-year-old actor said, “I am not happy about the fact that I smoke. I try not to smoke. But whenever the release date of my films are near, I take up smoking because I undergo tension. Later I even quit it. Smoking does not affect acting; it affects the stamina and health,” he said.

In fact, the same had happened during the release of PK, Dhoom 3 and Talaash, where he started smoking due to anxiety. And Aamir’s son Azad doesn’t like his father smoking, so the actor is just not allowed to light cigarette anywhere close to his four-year-old son.

When the actor was asked whether he will visit friend Salman Khan’s show Bigg Boss for promotion of Dangal, the actor stated, “I am not going on TV for promotions. We are having our ads and trailers screened on TV, but I am not going to any show for promotion.”

Along with promoting his upcoming film, slated to release on December 23, Aamir hinted at his look from next project, Thugs Of Hindostan. “My new all-beard look is a part of preparation of Thugs Of Hindostan, with Amitabh Bachchan. But this is not the final look, of course. The final look will be out after two months,” he said.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Rajkummar Rao and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
