Reigning star of Bollywood, Amir Khan, met the political giant and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Friday.
The Dangal-star is in Turkey with his family to promote his upcoming movie Secret Super Star.
Khan was received by Erdoğan at the Presidential Complex in the capital, Ankara.
His newest film “Secret Superstar” will be released on October 20 in India and the US.
When asked about the film, Khan said, “The movie is actually a story about all of you. Regardless of gender differences, you all have dreams, and that’s why this story is for all boys and girls.”
Khan also sang a song from “Dangal” during the meeting.
Referring to his visit to the Anıtkabir mausoleum dedicated to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Khan stated: “We have so much to learn from [Atatürk]. I will not forget this moment until the end of my life.”
The Bollywood superstar is all set to play Shakti Kumaarr, a music director with a largely flawed personality.
“He flirts with girls,” Khan said. “Shakti Kumaarr has all the bad qualities you can imagine in a man.”
The versatile actor has not shied from taking on different roles.
“Shakti Kumaarr is a music director who is going through a rough time,” said Khan’s wife and co-producer Kiran Rao. “Such characters are barely written for any actor.”
