Aamir Khan’s working style and his choice of films have been the talk of the town for a long time. This aspect has often attracted the attention of media and film students. In fact, Aamir and his team have been receiving inquiries from students who want to learn how the film industry functions, and they want to get trained by Aamir himself.

Now, HT has learnt that the actor has decided to hire two interns every year. The chosen two will shadow the actor. That will help them understand his style of functioning and learn how the industry works. “The process will be as intense as interning at any other organisation,” says an insider.

Aamir is “very keen” that the students join him for all his shoots, meetings, script-reading sessions, rehearsals and everything else that goes on behind the scenes in the Hindi film industry.

Since it was two young actors — Fatima Sana Shaikh (who plays Geeta Phogat in Aamir’s next) and Sanya Malhotra (who plays Babita Kumari in the same film) — who first expressed their desire to become his interns, the actor has started the initiative with them. “Fatima and Sanya will be exposed to everything that the actor does. Aamir will train them personally until March next year,” says the insider.

Fatima and Sanya play Aamir Khan’s daughters in his upcoming film, Dangal.

Once the actors finish their internship, Aamir will take two media students under his wing, beginning in April. Those who are interested in interning will need to contact his Mumbai office.

While the actor was unavailable, his spokesperson confirmed the news, and said, “Aamir wants to pass on his experiences to these youngsters. He is keen to share and motivate the next generation.”
