Aamir Khan is all set for the release of his upcoming film 'Thugs Of Hindostan'. The actor has been trying to quit smoking for quite some time now and has come up with a new way to tackle the problem. Instead of opting for cigarettes, he now smokes from a pipe. Talking about his new habit, he said, “One of my friends said that if I wanted to smoke, I should smoke a pipe. I liked it so much that I can’t go back to a cigarette now. I tried one sometime back, but the moment I took a puff, I found the taste horrible.”
He further spoke about his struggles with smoking and said, “I quit smoking for two-three years when I was training for Dhoom 3 (2013). But then, I went back to it again. I tend to smoke more when my movie releases. Kiran [Rao, wife] would be affected by the cigarette smoke, but she isn’t averse to the pipe. I even tried my hand at cigars, but did not find the experience satisfying.” In fact, some reports state that Aamir had once even asked Shah Rukh Khan if he could smoke in front of Amitabh Bachchan on the sets.
'Thugs Of Hindostan' also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in leading roles. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is all set to hit the screens on December 21. Stay tuned for more updates.
