Aamir Khan, who is currently busy shooting for Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom:3 in Chicago, requested UTV Motion Pictures to arrange a special screening of Anurag Basu’s Barfi! for his crew and himself.
A source close to the production house reveals, “A special screening of the Ranbir Kapoor film was organised in Chicago, USA. Aamir and some of the members of the cast of Dhoom:3 watched the film together.”
The 3 Idiots (2009) actor and UTV have always shared a great relationship, so when Aamir requested a screening, the makers readily agreed to arrange it in Chicago. Aamir, it seems, was very keen to watch the film since he wasn’t in India around the time of Barfi!’s release.
The source further adds that the film, which has been selected as India’s official entry to the Oscars for the award ceremony to be held in 2013, left Aamir overwhelmed and teary-eyed.
“Aamir thoroughly enjoyed the film. He had tears in his eyes by the end of it. Right from the direction to the performances, he seemed to love every bit of the movie. Even the others who watched it had only good things to say about it,” the source adds.
