‘Passion enough to get success’: Aamir Khan

Monday, 25 January 2021 (11:52 IST)
Pune: Passion, desire to learn, to grow, hard work and perseverance are the key factors for success, advised Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan to students.

During an online lecture as a Question & Answers session with the students of Symbiosis International University on Thursday, he said, “Passion is enough to get success, perhaps this is the fundamental thing for achieving success in life. Desire to learn, to grow is very important. Never give up attitude, hard work, perseverance are also the key factors for success.”

“Make your journey exciting and have fun, accept your mistakes, learn from them and remember the end result is not in our hands but we have to give our best in whatever we do,” he noted.

Talking about the change in the cinema industry, the actor said, “Creative change is the most important change for over the years in my view. Diverse kinds of stories are coming in the mainstream which was not the case earlier.”

“Not only cinema but all sorts of arts have an impact on young minds. Creative people are the only set of people who touch people’s hearts, they bring hope in people’s life,” he said.

On instinct, Aamir said, “Instinct is the experience and hard work which we did in the past and it has accumulated over a period of time. It is the knowledge which comes with experience.”

On his films popularity in China and opening a new territory of viewers in China and Hong Kong for his films, he gave credit to the audience there.

“They are welcoming culture from outside their country; we should appreciate them for this and should also learn from them. The most important factor here is the movie piracy. Piracy made me popular in China,” he explained.

Talking about how he chooses his films, the actor mentioned that his primary responsibility is to give people good time by watching his films and making films commercially viable.

On reopening of theatres or multiplexes, Aamir said, “Joy of watching a film in the theatre is a different experience altogether. It is a collective experience. The time will come back soon when we all can have this unique experience of watching movies.”

Talking about his activity on social media, the actor said, “I am not very active on social media. I don’t want people to see me but to experience me through my work, I always like to communicate through my work.”

About the healthcare facilities in India, Aamir stated that healthcare should be identical to each and every citizen of the country.

It should not be determined by one’s wealth but the best healthcare should be available to everyone, he added.

Dr S B Mujumdar, founder and president of Symbiosis, gave opening remarks. Dr Vidya Yeravdekar, pro-chancellor, Symbiosis International University, gave a welcome address.

Dr Rajani Gupte, vice-chancellor, SIU, gave vote of thanks and Dr Ruchi Jaggi, director, Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communications, was the anchor of the programme.

The lecture was conducted as a part of Symbiosis Golden Jubilee Lecture Series. (UNI)
