Apart from his acting skills, superstar Aamir Khan is also known for the conviction and determination he puts into his work. Nicknamed as Mr Perfectionist, Aamir devotes himself completely to the character he's playing and for that reason, he also keeps away from distractions like alcohol.

However, there was a time when Aamir used to be a heavy drinker and in a recent media interaction, he opened up about that phase of his life. He told News18, "I used to drink sometimes, but I don’t anymore. Some people take two pegs and they are sorted. But I was never one of those who drank regularly. I used to drink on occasions, but whenever I did sit down to drink, I would down the entire bottle."

Aamir continued, "And I felt that that was not okay. And when you are intoxicated, you do or say certain things which you later regret. Not that anything major has happened like that until now, but the fact that a person is no longer under their own control, that didn’t sit well with me."

On the work front, Aamir is currently working on the post production of highly anticipated upcoming film 'Lal Singh Chadda'.
