But does anyone know who inspired the Bollywood star to take up his circus act seriously? According to Bollywood sources, it is none other than the hot-and-happening south star Surya, who essayed a similar role in the period flick 7am Arivu.
Aamir Khan is playing a super villain in the film and for the last few months and he has been training in acrobatics with the American celebrity acrobat David Poznanter.
Surya is portrayed a circus artiste in AR Murugadoss‘s 7am Arivu. The actor, who goes to any length to prepare for his role, had admitted in an interview to DC that he trained with two veterans who worked for popular circus units including Bombay Circus.
He said that he was taught juggling, hand walking, gymnastics, acro-dancing etc and he spent a lot of time with the circus team before starting the shoot.
It may be recalled that Aamir Khan, who tasted huge success by remaking the Surya-AR Murugadoss combo’s Ghajini, was keen to get the remake rights of 7am Arivu as well. But the deal didn’t materialise due to various reasons.
