In Secret Superstar, Aamir Khan is playing the role of a music composer cum mentor to a teenager who aspires to be a singer, but her father isn't supportive of her passion. Not so long back, we saw Shah Rukh Khan also playing a mentor to Alia Bhatt in Gauri Shinde's Dear Zindagi. At the teaser of launch of Secret Superstar, when Aamir was asked about the similarity in the plot line of the two movies, Aamir said, "Dear Zindagi is about a modern city girl. I can make that from the promos. This is about a little girl from Baroda. Secret Superstar is different."
