Aamir Khan is not exactly known for making guest appearances in films. But the superstar seems to have made an exception for his wife Kiran Rao’s debut film as director
Mumbai, Nov 12: Yup, the ‘Perfectionist’ Khan will be seen in his wife Kiran Rao ’s first film Dhobi Ghaat .
Besides Prateik Babbar in main role, Kiran’s directorial venture has many new actors and actresses. It is learnt that Kiran wanted Aamir to make an appearance in the film, but the star had made it clear that he will act in it only if the story and script demands so.
Aamir was recently in LA, promoting Taare Zameen Par , India’s official entry for Oscars this year, while Kiran had been shooting ‘Dhobi Ghaat’ in Mumbai.
Upon his return to Mumbai on Kiran’s birthday a few days back, the husband-wife duo reportedly had a discussion which resulted in Aamir doing one scene for ‘Dhobi Ghaat’ with Prateik Babbar. The ‘perfectionist’ was finally ensnared by his wifey.
Kiran Rao’s ‘Dhobi Ghat’ is a documentary-cum-drama flick. This film is entirely Kiran’s conception and is being produced by her production house Cinema 73.
It’s quite possible that both Aamir and Kiran felt that the presence of a star can be an added asset for the movie which has a debutante director and a whole gamut of newcomers.
From what we know, Aamir is doing just a cameo and the details about his character are not yet out. As far as the guest appearance is concerned, we can hardly remember him doing any such kind of role in the past. He had even turned down Farah Khan for a cameo in Om Shanti Om despite repeated calls from her. But then, wife is wife.
