While GHAJINI would be a film which would be remembered more for its violence and the eight pack abs that Aamir is marketing as its USP along with the unique hair style, it would also be another film where Aamir is again returning with his favorite prop, the hat. In the peppy song, 'Gujarish', Aamir is again seen sporting his favorite hat with panache.

As a matter of fact whenever Aamir has done something different in a film, his hat has also had a place of eminence in the film. Unlike his idol, Dev Anand, Aamir loves to wear the felt hat instead of the cap in his films. DIL HAI KI MANTA NAHIN would not have been the film it came out to be, were it also not for the hat that he sported in the film. The eminence of the hat in life of the character called Raghu Jaitley was underlined in the scene where the hero, Aamir has a fight with the villains, and he rushes out, but darts back in to pick up his hat, and he is chided no end for his dare–devilry by the female co–star, Pooja Bhatt.

In the same manner, in RANGEELA Aamir sported a black leather pee–cap and it was a part of his regular persona through out the film. The interactions that he had with his cap during the times of desperation are the highlight of RANGEELA, and the scruffiness that Aamir portrayed in RANGEELA got an accentuation with the black cap that he sported in the film.

For Aamir, the passion for experimenting with caps within the roles that he has portrayed so far seems to have striking parallels with his admirer Dev Anand who has an iconic association with different forms of golf hats through out his film career.

His peers, Salman and Shah Rukh have not had that much of flourishing association with this glorious adornment on the head, for Shah Rukh it having a prominent presence in his cult film, DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE, and then his honey moon with the cap or the hat was over. For Salman Khan the prominent association with a cap has been in his first super duper hit film 'MAINE PYAAR KIYA', where his cap with Friend, written on it became the rage of the nation. The extremity of experiment with this is also not received with appreciation as it happened with Big B when he adorned the hat with multi colored feather adornments in JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM.

The saga with the hat would continue in different manifestations as long as the films keep on coming up in different genres.
