Although biz is generally low on Diwali day, Aamir's decision to release #SecretSuperstar on Diwali day itself did raise eyebrows...— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) October 19, 2017

It appears that Aamir might continue to have sleepless nights. Ahead of the film's release, he admitted to being extremely nervous:
In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen, who has assigned three and a half stars to the movie, writes: "Aamir Khan has a blast in this sweet and simple film about a young girl who dares to dream." Zaira Wasim plays the titular protagonist while Aamir's hatke role is that of a Bollywood music producer. "Aamir plays a part that is completely different and is outstanding! What tremendous comic timing! One of his best," tweeted Karan Johar, adding "Zaira Wasim and Meher Vij are absolutely fantastic in Secret Superstar... they are pitch perfect and will move you to tears ...SUPERB!"
Secret Superstar is helmed by Advait Chandan, who made his debut as a director with this film.
