Advait Chandan who has been associated with Aamir Khan Productions for a long time now feels, he is blessed to have worked with Aamir Khan Productions. He had been an assistant to filmmaker Kiran Rao. Advait Chandan worked as a production assistant for 'Taare Zameen Par' and as the first assistant director for 'Dhobi Ghat', then he went on to be Aamir Khan's manager. He will be making his debut as a director with 'Secret Superstar'.
On the occasion of Teacher's Day, Advait Chandan expressed his thoughts about his mentor, Aamir Khan and the various avenues that the production house provided, saying, "I'm blessed at many levels. One that I got to work with AKP on such films like 'Taare Zameen Par' and 'Dhobi Ghat'. Then, I got to work with Aamir Sir as his manager. When I narrated the script and he (Aamir Khan) liked it, that itself was unbelievable to me, then he went on and acted in it as well. Frankly right now I'm not really believing it. I feel like I'm in a dream right now."
