Aamir Khan visited the prestigious IIM-A business school and lectured around 80 post-graduate students on the corporatisation of Bollywood. He spoke for over ninety minutes amidst tight security on campus. “Aamir spoke about the general mechanism of how Bollywood works,” said Anita Kishor, a student, “The first part of the 90 minute session was his lecture, followed by a question-answer session.”
Aamir has the ability to present even the most difficult and remote subjects in a thought-provoking yet entertaining way as his long list of remarkable hits attests. Currently, he is promoting the making of a film about the plight facing the farmers of Bhopal. Raghubir Yadav will star in the film. The film will be directed by Anusha Rizvi. “The plot of the movie deals with a reporter’s journey to fight for the plight of farmers in the region. It deals with the issues of farmers’ suicide,” says a source.
After the huge success of Ghajini, Aamir has decided to take a year off from acting following his current movie 3 Idiots. He wants to spend more time with his family. “It is true that Aamir is finally taking a year off after Raj Kumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots is complete,” says a source, “He is currently in Bangalore shooting for the film. Actually, he was planning to take a sabbatical last year after Taare Zameen Par, where the double responsibility of directing and acting sapped him. But then he was coaxed into doing Ghajini and then began his physical reorientation, the muscle-building and body-toning that really exhausted the method actor.”
