We saw her in Dangal and we’ve been her fan ever since. Now she is back in Secret Superstar and we’re having a difficult time holding in our emotions. Yes, we’re talking about Zaira Wasim - the girl who played young Geeta Phogat in Dangal. She stole the show with her solid performance in Dangal and from the looks of it, she’s going to do it again in Secret Superstar. The trailer is fresh, the performances look solid and it has Aamir Khan - what more can a fan ask for? Here’s the trailer:
Aamir Khan has always been smart with his films. He has been using his stardom in the best way possible. He makes sure that he gives the audience the ‘Big Star’ connect they want in a film. That’s exactly what he did in Dangal & is probably doing in Secret Superstar. He shows just enough of him in action in the trailer but in the movie, he actually takes the back seat and doesn’t steal the show from the main character. He’s also been smart with the types of roles he does. Unlike other Khans who are having a hard time letting go of their image as an action or romantic hero, Aamir Khan is mixing it up. PK, Dangal and Secret Superstar are shining examples of this.
But coming back to the show stealer, Zaira Wasim is an absolute delight to watch. Although, I feel it’s a little early to say, but she just might be the next big thing of Bollywood and we’re loving it. The actress who is soon going to turn 17, has shown the audience her acting chops and there’s nothing that will stop her anytime soon. In Secret Superstar, she plays a Muslim girl with a passion for singing. After her father refuses to pursue her dreams, she starts her own YouTube channel and becomes an internet sensation. The events that happens afterwards and what is Aamir Khan’s role in all this still remains a mystery though.
The movie will be released on 19th October and is written and directed by Advait Chandan. Amit Trivedi’s music sounds fresh as always. Right now, we can just look forward to more news and glimpses of the movie. Here’s hoping.
