He may have donned some really whacky looks in the past for his films but few come close to this one. Aamir Khan’s pictures -- from what is being rumoured to be his next film, Secret Superstar-- are circulating on the internet and they are... pretty weird.

Aamir seems to have taken inspiration from Peter Pan villain Captain Hook and steampunk for the look. Don’t agree? Check them out:

Captain Hook is the villain from popular children’s book Peter Pan. Steampunk is a sci-fi genre that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. The bottom right picture is Johnny Depp from Sleepy Hollow.

One of Aamir’s many fan pages on Twitter posted these pictures on Friday and they soon went viral.

The page claims this is his look from his next film Secret Superstar. In the film, Aamir is said to be playing a music director who mentors a young singer. The film is his manager Advait Chandan’s first directorial project.

However, HT could not confirm whether this look or these photos really have any connection with Secret Superstar.

Aamir is currently busy with his next big film, Dangal (December 2016) and also announced on his Twitter page on September 6 that he will star in Thugs of Hindostan with Amitabh Bachchan.
