Karan welcomes the quintessential game changer Aamir Khan on the show. Today Aamir is considered the stamp of success who created a Dhoom at the box office.


Karan: Are you stressed about Dhoom?
Aamir: Don’t remind me.
Karan: So we should not talk about Dhoom?
Aamir: Please don’t.
Karan: Why is it taking me so long to get you on this couch?
Aamir: I was uncomfortable before, but when I came to know about you, I like you, I heard a lot about you, so I am here.
Karan: I believe you are a game changer, some of your choices changed the Indian Cimena.

Aamir: Well, I had not intentions of changing the game. I knew Lagaan was an unusual film, I loved its script. I do a film because I love it. I follow my heart, I am not scared of failure. I don’t want to be think about the consequences.
Karan: You are not easily accessible. Is this really you?
Aamir: It is 13 years since I have done a live show. I follow what makes me happy. Dancing makes me uncomfortable.


Karan: Salman says you are the biggest star in the country.
Aamir: He is, not me. Salman is generous, kind and loving. Salman has star power, when he shakes his belt, everybody goes bananas. He is a generous guy.
Karan: You tried to patch up with Shahrukh.
Aamir: I did, I don’t like fights, life is short. I believe in forgiveness, I am not saying I am perfect, I am still working on it.

Karan: When he married you, it was a tough time. ‘
Aamir: I never lived with anyone before, it was a complete change for me. It was difficult. Aamir was going through terrible time in his life. He was very fragile.
Karan: What about your fears of marrying to a movie star?
Kiran: I did not have those fears.
Aamir: I have a fear that I would lose her, I am always thinking is she still attracted to me, does she still love me…
Kiran: I would think who I am somewhere in this huge glamour world. I am kind of different.
Karan: You are really different.

Karan: Do you read the papers Aamir, the tabloids?
Aamir: I am usually the last person to get to know the news.
Aamir: Is Ranbir dating Katrina?
Karan: That’s the most overacting you did.

Kiran: Aamir was in Deepika’s room with 20 people. (Karan laughs!!)
Aamir: I feel happy when I see Ranbir’s work in Barfi.
Karan: How does Aamir feel with female attention?
Aamir: I love it.
Karan: Have you been hit on?
Aamir: Many times.

Karan: Lets see a video now. Imran talks about Aamir and his moments with him. He says Aamir is not a serious guy, he is hilarious, he is the life of a party, no actually he is not. Last year, Anushka called me. We were there and they were silent awkward moments. Anuskha started talking. Aamir joked with her and Anushka burst out laughing.
Aamir: Kiran has changed me, she has brightened the way I am. Her energy is infectious.
