Babasaheb Ambedkar is an inspiration to Aamir Khan. “Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was an unflappable figure. He was a proponent of love and humanity. He cared about others and instilled in them a sense of humanity.
Babasaheb was courageous and never gave up. So, when I’m having difficulties, troubles, or an unpleasant situation, I think of Babasaheb. That is why he is a source of inspiration for me. Babasaheb is my role model because of this “Aamir Khan stated.
Khan’s children have dabbled in the entertainment world as well. Ira revealed on social media in September 2019 that she would be directing her first theatrical performance, a version of Euripides’ Medea.
The show was produced by veteran actress Sarika, Kamal Haasan’s ex-wife, and her daughter Akshara Haasan, and Khan’s sister Farhat Dutta made a poster for its marketing.
