KIRAN RAO and AAMIR KHAN
Always known to promote his films in the most ingenious way, Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan has now decided to showcase his three upcoming productions- PEEPLI LIVE, DHOBHI GHAAT and DELHI BELLY at various International festivals.
Produced under his very own banner, Aamir Khan Productions (AKP), the three films are much anticipated and expectations are quite high from the three projects. The first one that should release is PEEPLI LIVE directed by Anusha Rizvi and produced by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao and also co-produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The promos are already there on various entertainment channels and it is a satire on the present system. With excellent actors like Raghuvir Yadav and Naseeruddin Shah as lead actors one can expect some intellectually gratifying stuff from PEEPLI LIVE. News is that it has been selected to compete at Sundance Film Festival 2010.
The next project, DHOBHI GHAAT, starring the promising star and son of late legendary actress Smita Patil and Raj Babbar, Pratik, also has Aamir in a special appearance and the film has been directed by Aamir's wife Kiran Rao. And last but not the least is DELHI BELLY, starring Aamir's nephew and star sensation of JAANE TU...YA JAANE NA, Imran Khan is complete and is also an eagerly awaited film directed by Abhinav Deo. Both the mentioned films too will premier at International film festivals and then release in theatres, later during the second half of this year.
Must add that Aamir sure knows the art of film promotion and the right way to handle different projects.
