Other Aamir was encouraged by his father to play badminton and he took up the sport as an eight-year old.

When he finished playing badminton he would like to stay involved in the sport, possibly as a coach. He would also like to join the police force.

If he did not play professional badminton, Aamir believes he could have played professional cricket.

He is known for his attacking game and his speed at the net.
