On quitting acting, Aamir Khan Said, "The moment I become a full-fledged filmmaker I will stop acting. Right now, I don't want to stop acting, that's why I am holding back the director inside me," Aamir told reporters.
Aamir Khan has backed several films as a producer like, Lagaan, Taare Zameen Par, Jaane Tu... Yaha Jaane Na, Peepli Live, Dhobi Ghat, Delhi Belly, Talaash, Dangal and Secret Superstar. The actor was last seen in multi starrer film, Thugs of Hindostan, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh, however, the film turned out to be a disaster on the silver screen and on box office.
Mr Perfectionist said his aim as a filmmaker is to support good scripts and making money is not his agenda. "I had not thought at what pace I will make films. Usually, people make films with their production houses for business. That is not our first agenda. Creativity is our agenda. Till the time we don't get a good script, we don't make it into a film," said Aamir Khan.
