At a recent event, Aamir Khan stated it is time to take a break after putting the last 35 years of his life entirely into his job. He suggested taking a year and a half to prioritise his family over his acting career. The superstar said that after the August 11 release of Laal Singh Chaddha, he was meant to begin making preparations for the movie Champions. When the official Hindi version of the Hollywood classic Forrest Gump came out, it got mixed reviews and didn't do as well as expected at the box office.

Aamir said that as an actor, he gets so engrossed in a project that nothing else occurs in his life. He made the decision to take a sabbatical. After Laal Singh Chaddha, he was going to act in a movie called Champions. Aamir called it a gorgeous narrative with a superb script. Although it's a beautiful and wonderful movie, the actor feels like taking a break. He wants to be with his family, including his mother and his children.

When the actor went to Delhi, he took part in a conversation session at an event for a childhood friend. He said that neither he nor his loved ones had been treated fairly by his single-minded dedication to his work. Zeenat Hussain, the actor's mother, was taken to a hospital in Mumbai last month after she was said to have had a heart attack.

The 57-year-old actor added that he feels like he has been working for 35 years, putting all of his attention into his job. He thinks it's unfair to his friends and family. In many respects, it's also unfair to him. This is the moment for Aamir to live life differently. He stated that this would be his first time not working as an actor. Aamir is looking forward to the upcoming year and a half, when he won't be starting off as an actor.

Nevertheless, the actor will remain associated with Champions as a producer. He has produced movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Peepli Live, Delhi Belly, and Lagaan in the past.

The actor went on to say that he would participate in the production of Champions because he has a lot of faith in the movie. Aamir will go talk to some other actors right away to see if they want to play the part he was hoping to play. He is at a point in his life where he wants to cherish the connections he has.

Aamir Khan Productions, Sony Pictures International Productions India, and 200NotOut Productions will all work together to co-produce Champions.

His next appearance will be in Kajol's Salaam Venky, directed by Revathy.
