In a recent candid interview, when the actor was asked about his item number, Aamir stated that director Abhiney Deo came up with the idea and approached him to do the song and only after consulting Kiran, he decided to do the dance number.
The item song is inspired from the disco era of 1980’s and Aamir opened up about his look in the song by stating that the hairstyle in the item song is inspired by Amitabh Bachchan, while the chest hair which he is sporting in the song is like Anil Kapoor’s.
“The dance moves are similar to Mithun as I am a big fan of him. And my attire will be a mix of styles inspired from Govinda and Amitabh. I'm saluting the superstars of the 1980s and 1990s, including Disco Dancer Mithun Chakraborty, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Jeetendra and Govinda among others,” further added the actor.
I’m not fond of remakes, says Aamir
More and more filmmakers are coming up with remakes not only in films, but also in songs in the name of remixes. However, Aamir revealed that he is not fond of remakes.
Aamir said, “I am not very fond of remakes but I am not totally against it. I worked in Ghajini, which was a remake of a Tamil film. I am not someone who would instinctively do a remake as I look to try something new. If something interesting comes up, I am open to the idea.”
Aamir’s kids are embarrassed of his dance number
Aamir’s new item song in ‘Delhi Belly’ has become a much-talked about affair for his retro look.
Although it’s now heard that his children, son Junaid and daughter Aira are not pleased with his dance moves in the song and are embarrassed about it.
Talking about his children not liking the song, Aamir stated, "My son Junaid and my daughter Aira were like, (covering his face) 'Papa what have you done?' ...and they shut their eyes and said 'what have you done' and they were most embarrassed by my amazing dancing.”
Meanwhile, his nephew Imran has stated that Aamir lacks the sexiness that a lot of the other item girls were easily able to bring onscreen.
