The director of the film, Advait Chandan, said, "The mother-daughter relationship is the heart of Secret Superstar. I was thinking about my mom a lot when I was writing it. And now that it's ready, I can't wait to watch it with her. Even Aamir sir is keeping a screening for ammi ji. So we thought why not tell all our guests to come along with their mothers. In fact, that's how I suggest everyone watches the film," according to DNA.

The film stars the Dangal sensation Zaira Wasim as Insia, a 14 year old girl from Vadodara, who dreams of becoming a successful singer against all odds, along with Aamir Khan in an extended cameo of an over-the-top music composer named Shakti Kumar.

Secret Superstar, a coming-of-age musical, is slated to release this Diwali on 19 October and is produced by Aamir and his wife Kiran Rao under their home production banner Aamir Khan Productions, along with Zee Studios.
