The perfectionist left everyone stunned with his highly obnoxious yet hilarious moves in the latest song Sexy Baliye from the upcoming musical drama Secret Superstar. To see the father-daughter Jodi of Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim of 2016’s biggest blockbuster Dangal in an entirely new avatar this Diwali will be a treat for all cinema lovers. Aamir Khan, who finished the entire shooting of his scenes in just 15 days, is all excited about the film and considers it to be conceptually bigger than Dangal. Secret Superstar will be releasing alongside Ajay Devgn starrer Golmaal Again on October 19. 

Background & Story

With two female actors in the lead, the film is definitely going to be a call for women empowerment. The story is simple – a young Muslim girl Insia (Zaira Wasim) aspires to be a singer but finds her father becoming an obstacle in her pursuit. But in such difficult circumstances, it is her mother (Meher Vij) and creepy mentor Shakti Kumaar (Aamir Khan) who inspire her to turns her dreams into reality.

The trailer is high on emotional quotient with an amazing background score from Amit Trivedi. The film looks like it will an encouragement for many like Insia. Now what makes this girl a secret superstar remains to be seen. We have a hint about the "secret" part from the trailer as Insia creates YouTube videos with a hijab on in order to cover her identity. It will be an awesome journey to see this little secret become a superstar finally. 

What to Expect?

The extended cameo of Aamir Khan in a never-seen-before avatar with highly flamboyant characteristics will definitely be one of the film’s highlights. Apart from that, the camaraderie between Zaira’s character and Shakti Kumaar also seems interesting. In one of the interviews, Aamir Khan reveals that Insia is the one who uses Shakti Kumaar for vested interests. If that’s the case, then audiences can expect a lot of surprises from the film. Being a musical, one can expect Amit Trivedi to spell magic with every note yet again.

Do not forget to catch the movie in your nearest theatres on 19th October. Stay tuned for the BMS Review of Secret Superstar.
