Aamir Khan is not only one of the industry's most commercially viable actors. The actor is known for experimenting with a variety of genres for his movies and is known for his 'one movie a year' rule, which ensures that each and every one of his ventures become a box-office smash. Ever since his debut almost 30 years ago with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, the actor has been breaking records and winning accolades for his performances left, right and centre.
All of these are in no small part due to his desire to experiment with his roles and completely transform himself with each character he takes on. Whether it was becoming a nude alien-turned-Bihari-boy in PK, a wrestling oldie with a pot belly in Dangal, or a beefed-up tattoo enthusiast in Ghajini, the actor doesn't shy away from taking roles that require him to undergo a complete transformation. Which is why it comes as a surprise that Aamir has this very odd clause that he adds to all his contracts. And that is 'low angle shots'!
According to BollywoodLife, "Aamir Khan has this ‘no low angle shot’ clause in his contract. Even when he worked with Ram Gopal Varma back in 1995, the clause restricted Ramu from shooting Aamir Khan that way. Considering RGV has his own ways for shooting a film, with lots of such shots.”
It seems pretty weird that an actor willing to put on 30 kgs for a role cannot handle a lower angled shot. To each his own, we suppose. The actor's next big appearance will be in Thugs of Hindostan, with Amitabh Bachchan.
