Mumbai: On the eve of Teacher`s Day, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who made his debut in acting as a child artist in Nasir Hussain`s ‘Yaadon Ki Baarat’ (1973), revealed that he regards his late uncle to be his guru as he had worked with him for four years as an assistant director.
"My guru was my uncle Nasir sahab, because with him I worked four years as assistant director. Even my debut as child actor was also in his film `Yaadon Ki Baarat`," Aamir told reporters Saturday at PVR Phoenix Mill, where he watched ‘Teesri Manzil’ in Purani Jeans Film Festival organized by Radio Mirchi.
The actor wished his late uncle could see his directorial debut ‘Taare Zameen Par’ (2007).
"I will always regret that when I directed my first film `Taare Zameen Par`, my uncle had passed away. I always feel that if he had been there, he would have been very happy. I always miss him that way," said Aamir.
