The actor's perfectionist streak is apparently taking a toll on his family life. That's probably why Aamir Khan has decided to take up less work to spend time with his family.

Aamir Khan feels that his father’s (Tahir Hussain) death has got him reflective.

He tells DNA, “That’s how I’m built. That’s what is in my DNA. That’s a constant struggle. I continuously feel that I’m not spending time with people whom I love — my family and friends."

"I felt that more sharply when my father passed away. Since then I have been thinking about it more seriously. People jump when I say this but I really want to cut down my work because that’s how I will get time for myself and my loved Aamirones. I’m struggling to find balance and work for 8-10 hours, take Sundays off or Saturday-Sundays off. I need to withdraw a bit. When I’m working, the concept of eight hours doesn’t work for me. No one is putting a gun on my head but the thing is that’s how I’m made," he continues.

Well Aamir, we hope you find work-life balance soon!
