Among all the horrible habits that somebody might develop, alcoholism is the worst. Many celebrities and artists, particularly in the showbiz world, have dabbled in alcohol. Recently, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan discussed his drinking habits.
There have been numerous sensational stories about celebrities who became inebriated and ended up in the worst predicament of their lives.
He is now entirely sober and has abstained from drinking. Aamir also hosted an episode about alcoholism during his tenure as presenter of Star Plus’s issue-based reality show Satyamev Jayate.
Aamir Khan freely discusses his alcoholism
The Dangal actress met down with News18 to discuss some personal issues, like spirituality, religion and drinking. “I used to drink occasionally, but I don’t anymore,” the Dhoom 3 star revealed when asked about his drinking experience. Certain individuals take two pegs and sort them.
However, I was never one of those that drank on a regular basis. I used to drink on rare occasions, but whenever I did, I drank the entire bottle.
And I felt that was not acceptable. And while intoxicated, you may do or say things that you later regret. Not that anything significant has occurred in that manner up to this point, but the fact that a person is no longer in their control did not sit well with me.”
Everyone knows he has one of the highest IQs, so when the host asked him which type of person he preferred — one with a greater emotional quotient or one with a higher IQ — Aamir Khan said that he favors the former, which led to a debate about the values he holds dear in life.
“I believe that everyone has the right to express their feelings, regardless of whether you agree with them. One should always have an open window in their mind.
This is one of the three pillars of Jainism to which I adhere. The first is nonviolence; the second is to consume as little as possible and avoid waste. And thirdly, these are some of the principles I strive to live by in my own life.”
I, too, am spiritual – Aamir Khan
When the presenter inquired further about his spiritual, religious, and political beliefs and ideologies. Khan remarked that “despite the fact that he does not engage in clearly spiritual activities, he considers himself to be one.” He also discussed religion, stating that “it is a difficult concept to escape from, especially if you were born and raised in India or in an Indian household.”
That is how our country is. You grew up hearing the Mahabharata and Ramayan stories as a child. It is ingrained in us; if you are an Indian, you cannot avoid it. As far as I am concerned, I have not engaged in any spiritual activity. However, I consider myself spiritual in my own way”. Aamir Khan and his partner Kiran Rao announced their divorce last year, shocking the whole business.
