As we told you just a few days ago, Aamir Khan was hurt filming for Ghajini, so much so that he had to go to the hospital. Reports were that he was going to have to take some time off, but “Mr. Perfectionist” that he is, he is all ready back to work. Aamir recently updated his blog with the story and also a bit about his new film for his company, Janne Tu… Ya Janne Na. Here are a few highlights from his blog post.
About his injury Aamir wrote, “By now y’all must have heard various accounts of my injury so I won’t bore you with one more. Especially since there is no particularly death defying moment in it. It was quite a boring injury, no anecdotal value or excitement whatsoever. Roll camera, action, run into frame, grab heavy goon, slam him against wall, lift him and throw him against second wall, shout in pain, hop on one leg, wave arm to call for cut, limp off to nearest chair. End result is that I had injured the adductor muscle in my right thigh. Which in layman terms means my inner thigh. There have been many more exciting injuries I have received in my career but again let me spare you the gory details. Importantly I’m recovering well and have restarted shooting with muscle supports and belts.”
About Janne Tu… Ya Janne Na, a film for his banner Aamir Khan Productions he didn’t say much but did reveal a picture of his nephew Imraan Khan, who is debuting in the film. “In the meantime I am readying my self for my next release. Jaane Tu. When I say ‘my’ I mean Aamir Khan Productions’. After Lagaan and Taare Zameen Par this will be our third release and I am keen to complete a hat-trick. We completed our test screenings end of March, and Rahman has almost finished the background score. Today the first promo breaks on TV. It should be up on the website as well.
This will be the first film of my nephew Imran, I think I’ll post a photo of him. Tell me what you think of the promo, and him.
Jaane Tu is the debut not only of Imran but also Abbas Tyrewala who has written and directed the film. Abbas who has is an established writer having written films like Munna Bhai MBBS, Maqbool, and Main Hoon Na among others has done a great job as a director. While I was busy with TZP he was doing JT, and when I saw the completed film it was an excellent translation onto screen of the script, which for me is the most imp yardstick for any filmmaker.”
Janne Tu… Ya Janne Na, or JT as Aamir calls it, is scheduled for release on July 4th of this year!
