Lagtha tho nahin hain.. ho to….


There is a scene in the film “Taare Zameen Par” in which Aamir Khan, who plays an arts teacher, explains to kids in his class that being dyslexic doesn’t mean that a child doesn’t have any potential.

Dyslexia is a general term used for disorders involving difficulty in reading or interpreting words. To encourage the kids Aamir cites the examples of several world personalities who were dyslexic in schools but went on to become geniuses.Aamir shows a poster of a Bollywood star to the kids and says: “Aap inhe toh jaante honge, inhe bhi padhne mein problem hoti thi, lekin aaj dekho, yeh duniya mein Dhoom machaiye huye hain. ” After Aamir says this, the whole class breaks into the song Dhoom Machale Dhoom 

In the said scene, Aamir cites the example of this star  as someone who was dyslexic in his childhood but has now become a superstar.

Hmm… achcha????… Dyslexic lagtha tho nahin tha.. ho to..pata nahi..
