After essaying an alien onscreen, Aamir Khan made no bones about voicing a real dog in Dil Dhadakne Do.

“I got a call a few weeks ago from Zoya (Akhtar, the director), and she asked me to see the film. I saw it and, of course, Pluto was also in the film. His voice was given by Javed Akhtar saab (who has penned Pluto’s lines) at that time.

“When the film got over, Zoya asked me what I thought of it. I told her that I loved it, and it was really amazing, and that I laughed and cried through it. I loved every character, it was well-written and every actor has performed well.

“When I told her I loved it, Zoya said, ‘Listen, I want you to play Pluto’. I was a bit surprised ... because I thought Javed sir had done a great job. But I said ‘okay’. I had loved the film so much that I was just happy to be a part of it ... I think it is a great film to be part of.

“So, I didn’t even think twice. And two days later, I was dubbing for it.”

In real life, Aamir is “a real animal lover”.

“I had two dogs, and now I have cats and a dog. Earlier, I had a Boxer named Chhoti and another was a pariah dog named Peanuts. Now I have a Yorkshire Terrier, and she is called Imli,” he said.

But Pluto, he says, is “quite different from the dogs I have had”.

“My dogs have been quite crazy. Pluto is a very philosophical dog. He is really into observing human nature and has a take on everything. But yes, since I am an animal lover... (I know that) pets very much become a part of family,” said the 50-year-old. IANS
