[India], Aug 02 (ANI): Actor Aamir Khan revealed on Wednesday that his upcoming home production Bollywood flick 'Secret Superstar' is based on empowerment of girl child.

While talking to the media here, the 52-year-old said, "Like 'Dangal', this film is on a single topic that girls are being seen through a different perspective. And possibly in many parts of our country, son and daughter are not treated equally. This film is based on the empowerment of a girl child."

Divulging the details of the movie, the 'Dangal' star said the movie---which is actually a musical film about a girl, who is an extremely talented singer and composer---will be liked by both teenagers and elderly adults.

Zaira Wasim, who plays the protagonist in the film, said that she loved working with the 'PK' star after their super hit film 'Dangal'.

The story is not modeled on any particular superstar, infact it is modeled on many people.

Directed by Advait Chauhan, 'Secret Superstar' is the story of a young girl who dreams of becoming a famous singer but her father is against the idea.

And how this girl achieves stardom without openly defying her father, forms the crux of the story.

The movie is scheduled to hit the theatres on October 20. (ANI)
