Amir Khan is always seen to have an insightful and intelligent representation of himself. So, no confusion his favorite game will be chess. Amir also having a good relation with chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand. Amir Khan, Viswanathan Anand, Arijit Singh, and others found in a gathering of chit-chat and playing chess.

When the host, chess enthusiast, Samay Raina, asked to Amir, “If there’s an amazing biopic on Viswanathan Anand in the pipeline, would you be interested to take the lead role?” To which Aamir Khan smiled and rhetorically said, “Is that a question?” He added, “That’s one of the easiest questions to answer.”

Amir replies, “It would not only be an honour and pleasure to play Vishy (as he is fondly called), but it’ll also be highly exciting to get into his mind. When I play a character, I try to understand the person’s mind. And Vishy being a real person, I’ll obviously spend a lot of time with him to understand his mind and how his mind works. I would also speak to his wife and his family to further understand how his mind works. And then hopefully, I’ll surprise Vishy when I play him on screen. So I’d look forward to that if and when that happens.”

The chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand supporting the conversation quote, adds, “And I promise I won’t put you in a situation where you have to gain weight for the role.” Viswanathan’s smart reply had everyone in splits.
