I’m not a hands-on father; I’m obsessed with my own life: Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan is back in action as he has started the year 2017 on a very bright note. Not only has his movie Dangal smashed box-office records, he will start shooting for Thugs of Hindostan with Amitabh Bachchan. Recently when he celebrated his birthday with near and dear ones, he has loads to share with the media and his fans. Aamir is usually very private when it comes to his kids but recently, he got candid about his three children Junaid, Ira and Azad with a leading entertainment magazine.
When asked about how it was becoming a father to Azad, Aamir revealed, “Yeah, it was different. The first child gets the most attention. When it’s your first child, you’re nervous; you’re extra cautious, extra involved. When Junaid was born in 1993 I shot only for 36 days that year. For 328 days I was with him. That excitement, that nervousness wasn’t there with Ira or with Azad. With the first child it’s with the first child it’s arrey roh raha hai, kya hogaya! Also, I’ve to admit I’m not someone who’s fully there mentally most of the time. Kiran is a hands-on mother.
He also spoke about how he is a self-obsessed person, “Hands-on is when you’re sharing equal responsibilities with your partner in bringing up the child. Honestly, I’m not sharing that. I’m afraid I’m a self-obsessed person. Self-obsessed means I’m more in my work, in my own world. And I’m more excited about the things I’m doing, the world that I’m in. You can give it a fancy word but the bottom line is that I’m obsessed with my own life.”
