30 Mar - Aamir Khan recently revealed that he has actually considered quitting showbiz for the past two years during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The actor, who spoke about his decision recently at the ABP Ideas of India event in Mumbai, stated that nobody knew his plans except for his family.
"Anyway, my film comes after three or four years. Once "Laal Singh Chaddha" gets released nobody will realise if I'm doing anything for the next three or four years. By then I'll leave the industry and nobody will know. So, I decided not to say anything and three months passed like this," he added.
"One day, my children told me that you are an extreme person, don't do this. It will be better if you find a balance in life. I had quit films. In my heart, I had left films. My children and Kiran explained to me I am doing the wrong thing. Kiran cried and said, 'When I see you, I see films residing inside you. What are you saying I'm unable to understand'. A lot happened in two years, I quit the industry and came back."
On the other hand, Aamir's aforementioned movie - which is based on Tom Hanks' award-winning movie "Forrest Gump" - is set for a worldwide release in August 2022. Directed by Advait Chandan, the film also features Kareena Kapoor and Naga Chaitanya.
