Sharing his fair share of weaknesses with the paparazzi, Aamir said, "I think my obsessive personality is a problem. Another bad habit that I have is smoking. I have tried to quit, but I hope to kick the butt altogether."
Earlier, at the time of shooting for hit film "Dangal", Aamir said, "I am not happy that I am smoking again. I try not to smoke. But when my film is about to release I get nervous so I start smoking again but then I stop it as well. I don’t think smoking has anything to do with acting. Due to smoking health will be affected. I tell everyone not to smoke and even I try not to smoke."
Aamir, on his birthday, joined Instagram and even did a live video chat with fans. As his first Instagram post, he shared a series of nine photos as part of a collage picture of his mother, Zeenat Hussain's photo. While sharing the photo, Aamir wrote: "I had to post my mom’s post as the first on Instagram because of her I am here."
