Aamir Khan seems to now be the most guaranteed good returns brand in India. Having super bumper hits like Ghajini and 3 idiots under his belt, his produced movies too, carry a stamp of quality. So it is no wonder that a TV channel has offered his soon to release film Peepli Live a whopping Rs.10 for the satellite rights. Now the amount in itself is much higher than the actual cost of the film including its expected spending on promotion and release.

As Rajkumar Hirani had himself admitted around the release of ‘3 Idiots’, when the master strategist Aamir Khan is at work for the marketing and promotion of a film, a director can afford to take a back seat after the film is canned and censored. Nothing succeeds like success and two back to back all time blockbusters in the form of ‘Ghajini’ and ‘3 Idiots’ meant that not too many voices were expected to be raised, intentionally or unintentionally, when it came to an Aamir Khan film.
Twitter adds one more celebrity to its long list of renowned and big names like Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Shahid Kapoor, Shekhar Kapur, Arjun Rampal, Gul Panag, Karan Johar and many more. The new name is none other than Bollywood’s perfectionist hero Aamir Khan. He was convinced to join the bandwagon by Bollywood’s Big B.
It was reported last week that the megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his actor turned politician wife Jaya Bachchan met Aamir Khan over dinner in London. Mr Bachchan took the opportunity to convince the actor to join the popular micro-blogging site. He agreed to start tweeting from July 1, after much persuasion.
Kareena Kapoor a.k.a. Bebo has been one of the reigning actresses in Bollywood since the past few years. She has proved herself to be a versatile actress with a wide range of roles that she has performed in space of these few years.
The actress feels that she has now entered a much more mature stage of her career. The news of Mani Ratnam reviving his film Lajjo, which was earlier shelved have surfaced recently. The buzz is that Kareena and Aamir Khan will be playing the lead roles in this movie.
Bollywood perfectionist Aamir Khan knows how to maintain relations with staff members and be there with them in their good and bad times. Last Friday, he had shown a very sweet gesture to one of his staff members Sachin Gowda by giving a surprise at his wedding.
Post the release and all the hype and recognition surrounding Taare Zameen Par, Aamir Khan got busy with various other projects, so much so that the Taare… star Darsheel Safary had sadly confessed that ‘Aamir Uncle’ is no longer in touch with him.
But now, with Darsheel’s second feature film on release, Aamir has been taking a keen interest in the way things are going, presumably because he doesn’t want Darsheel or his parents (unfamiliar with the ways of Bollywood) to make any wrong career moves for Darsheel.
Two filmmakers making a film on the same subject is not uncommon in Bollywood. Ajay Devgan’s A Legend of Bhagat Singh, and Bobby Deol’s Shaheed, both on the life of slain hero Bhagat Singh were released around the same time. Once more, two filmmakers have chosen the same premise for their movies; the life of legendary artist Kishore Kumar.
Directors Anurag Basu, and Shashanka of Quick Gun Murugan fame, will be making a biopic on his life. Kishore Kumar was a man of many talents – singer, actor, composer and filmmaker. His personal life, too, was interesting as he was married to the iconic beauty of Indian cinema, Madhubala. While Basu’s film will explore his many facets, Shashanka’s film will speak about the love between him and Madhubala.
India is not exactly renowned for being a clean nation. In fact, we to some extent also lack civic sense. Garbage strewn on roads, gutters overflowing and lack of dustbins in public places is a common sight. The Ministry for Human Resource Development is taking the steps to rectify this situation. It has decided to start at the school level. And assisting them in this venture is none other than Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan.
The film industry’s perfectionist, Aamir Khan who till date has turned down several offers from the small screen, will finally be seen on STAR CINTAA – ‘Super Stars Ka Jalwa’ for his first ever stage performance.
