"We beat a team which is unfortunately very arrogant and decidedly badly behaved on the cricket field. I fail to understand why arguably the best team in the world has to behave so badly," says Aamir Khan about India's stunning Perth victory down under in his latest post (The washer and dryer effect) on his blog, aamirkhan.com. Basking in the glorious response to his directorial debut Taare Zameen Par, Khan admits that he doesn't have time to rest as he starts shooting for the remaining portion of his next film Ghajini Remake from January 22.
There's another disclosure which those of you who haven't checked out his latest post would get to know on Bollywood Hungama first. It's a known fact that Aamir Khan is producing an English film titled Delhi Belly (shooting for which will commence in March) but what you don't know is that Aamir Khan Productions is producing another film (untitled so far), the shooting for which will start later this year. The only film under AKP that will release this year is Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, the launch vehicle of Aamir's nephew Imran Khan who is being touted as one of the most promising newcomers. Khan is currently working on its release plan.
According to Aamir Khan, TZP has overtaken Rang De Basanti's box office collections. Although he is very happy with the way the film is being appreciated but at the same time he is unhappy with a certain section of his fans as well. "I am deeply disappointed with those of you who have watched TZP on a pirated DVD/VCD, or when illegally shown on cable or on websites which have illegally uploaded the film. How can you be my fans or fans of Indian Cinema or any cinema for that matter if you steal from us? Sad." And the good news for his fans is that he has finally given up smoking.
The only release of 2008 for Aamir Khan (as an actor) will be Ghajini Remake that is slated to release on Diwali. The actor is supposed to shave off his hair for the balance portion of the film. It would be interesting to note how he looks in an avatar that no one has seen him in before. What do you think? Do you have a sketch in mind? Or are you waiting for the actual picture?
