Aamir Khan, the celebrated Bollywood actor, recently made waves at Wimbledon 2024 where he shared candidly about his early days as a tennis player and why he eventually quit the sport.

Early Tennis Days

In a conversation with former tennis player and commentator Vijay Amritraj, Aamir revealed his past involvement in tennis, highlighting that he was once a standout player at the junior level and even held the title of Maharashtra State Champion. Despite his talent and passion for the game, Aamir confessed that he didn’t pursue tennis further due to his father’s decision.

Father’s Influence

“I really enjoyed the game but didn’t think I could have made it in tennis. And then one fine day, my dad decided that I should stop playing so I stopped,” Aamir explained during the chat shared by Star Sports India. Reflecting on his father’s guidance, Aamir humorously added, “Well, I think I am very happy where I am, so yeah, and good for tennis that I didn’t continue.”

Wimbledon Experience

This isn’t Aamir’s first rendezvous with Wimbledon. He had previously attended the Men’s Final in 2023 accompanied by his children Junaid, Ira, and Azad. Recounting his latest visit, Aamir described the experience as “wonderful,” emphasizing how he typically enjoys watching tennis on television but cherished the opportunity to witness the French Open in person a few years back.

Career and Future Projects

Since the release of Laal Singh Chaddha in 2022, Aamir Khan has taken a break from the silver screen. His upcoming film Sitare Zameen Par, slated for a December release, marks his return to acting after his sabbatical. Aamir had chosen to step away from films to prioritize spending quality time with his family, a decision he openly shared following the film’s mixed reception.
