- "The criteria of being a good actor is the same," said Aamir

"There's a very famous quote by a Hollywood personality 'Never work with animals and children, because they steal the scene away from you and as an audience your heart goes out to them'," Aamir added.
Aamir also mentioned child actor Darsheel Safary while elaborating on the subject: "The criteria of being a good actor is the same, whether you're a child or an adult. You have to be the part, be the character and be able to deliver that. So the criteria is the same. I had a wonderful experience working with, whether it was Darsheel Safary in Taare Zameen Par or Zaira in Dangal or even Kunal Kemmu in Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke," he said.
Nitesh Tiwari's Dangal, which released last year, cast Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra as the two Phogat sisters while Zaira and Suhani Bhatnagar played the younger version of the wrestler sisters. Ahead of Dangal's release, Aamir had everything good to say about the younger lot: "If I have to rate our performance in the film, I would say that these kids performed ten times better than what I did. No, I am not exaggerating anything. Once the film releases, the audience will understand. I have been working in the industry for last 25 years, but these kids are highly talented," he told IANS.
