In a video message to his fans, who asked him about his 'pehla nasha', a reference to the romantic song from his early hit "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar", Aamir said he was unlucky in his initial quest for love.
"Believe it or not, I fell in love when I was 10. I had joined a tennis coaching and the group was large, of 40-50 children. There I was stunned to see a beautiful girl. She was of my age. It was my first love. I just fell head over heels for her. I was totally besotted. But I never had the courage to tell her.
"My tennis improved a lot during this time as I would be the first one to come and the last one to leave as I wanted to impress her. But her family left the city after a year, so it was unrequited love," the 52-year-old actor said.
The actor, who is happily married to second wife Kiran Rao, said he feels a special affinity to people who are not lucky in love as he has gone through such situations in life.
"I was not lucky in love initially. I am now but not in the beginning. I have a special emotion for those who don't get to be with the person they love. I hope that all of you have love in your life," the actor said.
