New Delhi: Bollywood's Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan recently delighted his fans when he shared a special message on Facebook in which he spoke about his first encounter with love. Yeah! And it happened when he was only a 10-year-old boy.
The actor, however, added that it was unrequited as he could never express his feelings to her. On Wednesday, Aamir spoke at length about his first love in a candid video he shared on the social networking site.
"Believe it or not, I fell in love for the first time when I was 10 years old...Very few people know this. I had joined tennis coaching and there was a group of 40-50 children there. There was a girl who was a part of it, and I was stunned to see her. It was 'Pehla Nasha' when I first saw her.
"I fell head over heels in love with her and was totally besotted by her. I used to think of her day and night. But I never mustered the courage to express my feelings to her. I was too young and she was of the same age. She was beautiful."
He said, however, that in between all this, he improved at tennis.
"I used to practice a lot because I used to come first and go last. I wanted to impress her also. But after one year or so, her family left the city. It was unrequited love... Silent love which could never get fulfilled. I could never even say it.
Aamir further added that he fell in love, two-three times more and unfortunately like the previous ones, they were also unrequited.
"I was never lucky in love. But now I am," said Aamir, who is married to director Kiran Rao.
Concluding, he said he holds a special emotion in his heart for those who fall in love but don't get the feeling in return. "I hope there's love and happiness in your life," he said, wishing his fans.
