Aamir was the lead actor and producer in Dangal while in Secret Superstar, he was the producer and a supporting actor.
Zaira Wasim also added that now people walk up to her and asked for selfies. She narrated about her first such experience. She was called ‘bhaiya’ by a person who had seen her in Dangal, probably because her hair was short and that she looked like a guy! But notwithstanding this episode, her experiences with fans have been great and she finds it overwhelming.
At the same time, Zaira Wasim also clarified that stardom has not gone into her head. She still feels that she her whole day in her room with some good food and her three pet cats for company. She even said that despite travelling around India, her heart lies in Srinagar.
