Being Bollywood's 'Mr Perfectionist' comes with its own problems as superstar Aamir Khan feels guilty for not being able to spend enough time with his family.

The meticulous star, who prepares extensively before taking up any project and thus ends up doing only one film a year, said he found it difficult to juggle shooting 'Dhoom 3', 'Peekay' and doing research for his TV show 'Satyamev Jayate 2'.

Aamir Khan, 48, and his wife Kiran's son Azad turned two on December 1. Aamir said he would take the child to his shootings so that he could spend more time with him.

"I have always felt that I am not spending enough time with my children and family. I spent 25 years with this guilt. The problem is that I get so lost in my work that I don't realise it.

"The physical training was really difficult. I had to have a lean but flexible body for my character of gymnast. I had only nine per cent of body fat while doing the film but got relaxed after I finished shooting."

"I remember when Adi asked me about beginning the shoot, I said, 'I will need a year'. He was surprised but now when he watches the film, he realises why I needed that time."

Aamir Khan, who spent two years learning tap-dancing, body building and gymnastics for 'Dhoom 3', said he agreed to do the film because he fell in love with the story which has more emotions this time.
