But the versatile actor was once scared of the festival of colours, he says. "Many are not aware that I was born on the day of Holi -- 14 March, 1965. Ammi (Mother) had told me that when I was born, the nurse had come and put some colour on my face.

But as a child, I was always scared of Holi, because of colourful faces and the noise that people make while playing Holi. So I stayed at home," Aamir says.

The 46-year-old actor lost the fear of colours and boisterous celebration once he entered his teens. "After I turned 14-15, I was no more scared, and started playing Holi. We still celebrate Holi, with family and close friends," says Aamir. Incidentally, one of his first films as a professional actor was titled Holi, which came out in 1984. It was directed by Ketan Mehta.
