Aamir Khan has been termed as Mr Perfectionist by his fans for a reason because he is not only particular about his schedule but also his diet. At an event on Wednesday, Aamir narrated an incident and said that during an invitation to Shah Rukh Khan’s residence for dinner three years ago, he had carried his tiffin box because he was following a diet to maintain his physique for Dangal.
Apple CEO Tim Cook visited India in 2016 and was invited for dinner to SRK’s residence in Mumbai along with several other stars. Aamir, who at that time was prepping for Dangal, attended the party but refused to indulge in the lavish spread that was prepared for guests, and instead followed his diet by eating out of his tiffin box.

“Whenever you meet Shah Rukh, ask him, and he will tell you several interesting stories. SRK had invited us to his home for a party when Tim Cook was in Mumbai,” Aamir told reporters at the event. SRK’s wife Gauri Khan requested Aamir to forsake his diet and have dinner with the rest of the guests but the Dangal actor wasn’t willing to comply.
“I told Gauri that I was carrying my tiffin box with me,” Aamir added.
Well, his strict regime worked well as Dangal was a blockbuster and he garnered several accolades for his role of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in the Nitesh Tiwari-directed film.
Aamir Khan, last seen in Thugs Of Hindostan, will appear next in Lal Singh Chaddha, a remake of the Hollywood blockbuster Forrest Gump.
