Mumbai, March 24 (IANS) Despite hailing from a film background, noted Bollywood actor-director Aamir Khan's parents were against his entering the filmdom.

'My parents looked after us very well... we had a fairly sheltered life. I mean my parents were really against me getting into films. I come from a film family. My father and uncle were both filmmakers. And I faced hell at home. It was like there's no way you're getting into films,' Aamir Khan told CNN's special edition 'Talk Asia' to be aired Wednesday 6 p.m.

'But I don't usually listen to people. I just do what I feel like. And then when they realized... actually it was more because they were concerned for me, you know.

'Every parent is concerned for their children. And they had been through this line and this profession is so uncertain. You know one day you're up there, the next day you're nobody and it's a really harsh profession,' he added.

Aamir Khan is a son of renowned film producer Tahir Hussain. His uncle Nasir Hussain is also a film director.

    @musiclover: Who ever said we don''t GO to our parents when making a big decision? I am saying that we don''t have to always FOLLOW what they say, but sometimes listen to the voice of our heart too!

    fot TZP it was not for him that got the nomination it was Darsheel and in fact Darsheel is a better actor than Amir. For Lagaan it was not just him that made the movie their were more actors that made it possible.
    Maybe his Parents knew how the film industries work and didnt want their son to make the mistake as they did. Amir just got lucky!!

    Hello that was a big decision for them as well as him to go to the movies so dont YOU go for help when your''e making a big decision your self!!!!

    @musiclover: Parents don''t ALWAYS make the right choices for their children even when they have the purest intentions. If YOU always follow what your mummy-daddy tell you...all i can say is that you have no mind of your own.

    And as for calling him a bad deserves only one comment.......D-UH!!!!!

    Wow...there are some haters here. Glad to see that fans as well though. :)

    I can respect people''s opinions if they say they like other actors more than Aamir or have problems with some of the statements he has made, but calling him a bad actor just shows that you don''t know what acting is.
