Mumbai: If singing puts him in a good mood, painting also brings joy to Aamir Khan, who played a painter in critically acclaimed Dhobi Ghat.
“Painting, like singing, is something I really enjoy doing. Though I do it badly,” said Aamir.
“I love singing, it puts me in a good mood. It disturbs the hell out of everyone around me, but it makes me feel very happy… painting also. I have realised that I am really a bad painter but when I am painting, I get so engrossed and I feel as if I am making something like a Picasso,” the 46-year-old added at the launch of CDs and DVDs of Dhobi Ghat.
Despite his inexperience with paintbrush, colours and canvas, Aamir managed to complete a painting and gifted it to another painter of B-town, Salman Khan.
“The one painting that I have done in my life is on the sets of Dhobi Ghat, while they were lighting up, I did a full canvas and presented it to Salman. So, it’s in Salman’s house,” said Aamir who also did an item number in Delhi Belly.
After 3 Idiots in 2009, Aamir will be seen in a key role in Reema Kagti’s Talaash, co-produced by him, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. The cast of the film also features Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.
