Secret Superstar tells the story of Insia (Zaira Wasim), a teenager from Vadodara who aspires to be a singer. However, she faces opposition from her short-tempered and violent father, who sees music as nothing more than a girlish hobby. Insia lives her dream of becoming a singing sensation through YouTube, where she remains an anonymous face hidden behind a burkha, simply known as Secret Superstar. Insia’s journey to fame is what forms the rest of the plot.
Produced by Aamir Khan, Zaira Wasim received high critical acclaim for her stellar performance. The film is directed by Advait Chandan and has Aamir Khan playing an extended cameo appearance.
Secret Superstar is facing heavy competition from Golmaal Again, which has earned a whopping Rs 60 crore in two days.
