This talented actor is known for going to any extent for a shot. He immerses himself so much into the role that he ends up doing things quite dangerous to himself.
In one of his films, the scene involved the bad guy forcing him to eat stones. Aamir actually swallowed some, and though the shot turned out amazing, the next morning he was in agony. A couple of the stones he had recklessly swallowed seemed to have got stuck somewhere in his alimentary canal.
A doctor was called in immediately. An experienced man, he wasted no time in scans or X-rays
"Get me a sigmoidoscope", he barked at his assistant, who got one from the car.
As it was inserted up Aamir's dorsal end, the doctor assessed the situation as safe, and asked for Aamir to be given an enema. "That should do the trick", he said and like all doctors who have looked up a fellow human's backside, asked for tea.
"But sir", said his student, "The stones seem to be pretty far inside. Almost in the small intestine. How will an enema help? Shouldn't we operate?"
"My dear chap! Small intestine forsooth! The stones are right here in the rectum, waiting to be flushed out"
"But then, why does it seem.....?" The student was puzzled.
"Ah, you youngsters probably haven't heard of it, but we of the old school have learnt the old maxim by heart"
"You know, Objects in Aamir are closer than they appear"
