Watch Meri Pyaari Ammi here.
Secret Superstar tracks Zaira Wasim's life, where she dreams of becoming a rockstar but her father doesn't support her. However, in the end, she becomes a YouTube sensation without revealing her identity.
Here's how. (The trailer will give a fair idea of her journey).
Of casting Zaira in Secret Superstar, Aamir told news agency IANS, "Zaira does not have any connection with music, like she did not have any connection with wrestling while doing Dangal, but she trained for wrestling for Dangal and for Secret Superstar, she has learned guitar, which is a big work. As an actor, we often try that whenever we play a musical instrument we play it accurately. But I think she (Zaira) has gone a step further, she has spent a lot of time with Meghna Mishra as a singer because she wanted to understand how to sing, they used to rehearse together. She actually learned to play guitar for all the songs where all she had to play it."
Secret Superstar, written and directed by Advait Chandan, releases on October 19.
