It is hard to imagine superstar Aamir Khan making a bee-line for an autograph but the actor once stood in a queue to get a picture with cartoon star Mickey Mouse for his children.

Aamir KhanKhan, who was on a trip to Disneyland with his children, said that it was an humbling experience.

"...There roaming about in the theme parks were the characters of Mickey Mouse and Minny Mouse, with loads of children queuing up with their respective parents for an autograph and a photo with their favorite cartoon character," Khan wrote in his blog.

"My kids went nuts and insisted on a photo and autograph with them. So here I was, big superstar, standing quietly in line waiting for Mickey Mouse to give me an autograph for my children," the actor wrote.

Khan's imagination went wild when he thought what if the person behind cartoon's costume was an Indian.

"I was mouthing the lines that I hear everyday - 'Hi, my kids are big fans, can we have a picture please?' – I was thinking to myself what fun if the person behind the Mickey Mouse costume is a desi!!!," Khan wrote.
