An emotional Aamir Khan recalls his father's financial misery, says it was a pain for them

Opening up about his family's financial struggle while growing up, actor Aamir Khan said while his father was a well-known film producer in Bollywood, his family did not lead a luxurious life due to financial instability

Actor Aamir Khan opened up about his family's financial struggle when he was growing up.

In an interview with Humans of Bombay, the actor recalled that while people assumed that his family led a lavish life style since his father was a producer but the truth was that his family too faced financial struggles.

The actor teared up while talking about his father's struggle. He then took some time to compose himself in between the interview.

Aamir said, 'Thing that would trouble us most was Abba Jaan ko dekh ke (seeing our father). Because he was a very simple man. Maybe he didn’t have enough sense that he should not have taken so much loan.'

Aamir further added that because of the movie tickets being sold in black, producers were even not able to recover their dues. 'Unko problem mein dekh ke takleef hoti thi kyuki un logon ke phone aate the jinse paise liye hain. Unka jhagda shuru hojata tha phone pe ki 'main kya karu, mere paas paise nahi hai. Meri film atki hai, mere actors ko boliye dates dein mujhe, main kya karu.' (So it would hurt us to see him in trouble. Because lenders used to call us. We would hear him fighting with people on the phone, telling them 'what do I do, my film is stuck. Tell the actors to give me dates),` the actor added.

Khan recalled that despite financial issues his father made sure to return everyone's money. Aamir's school fee was also always paid on time. His mother used to get extra long pants for them so they can use it for a longer period of time.

He concluded by saying, 'My father was an above-average producer. His sensibilities were nice and he did choose good stories but he didn't understand business. We can only draw this conclusion because his films have worked well but he was always in debt.'

Aamir Khan was last seen in `Laal Singh Chaddha`.
