Happy Independence Day!   
Aug,15,2010
 

Many happy returns of this day everyone.

A day to celebrate our freedom.

A day to remember our past, think about our present, and dream about our future.

Am sitting in Delhi airport with Natha and Budhia and reading your responses to Peepli Live. All of us are thrilled with the response. Most encouraging. It is amazing that a such an unusual film like this is getting so warmly received all across. A special mention here about the response of the media. The film is critical of all of us and that includes the media. However this film is getting strong support from the media. I have to say that the media is showing an amazing sense of grace and maturity. Especially since a film like this really needs, and I believe deserves, this kind of support. It is most encouraging to creative people like myself who are trying to our best to push the envelope. Thank you.

Am so happy for Anusha, Mehmood and the entire cast and crew of Peepli. And I am so happy that the support I have tried to give this fresh talent is itself getting a lot of support. Much appreciated.

Keep the responses coming.

Thank you.

Love.

a.

Time to make another Lagaan. A movie of cruel government after Independance. I am sending some links have a look and I am sure you will understand my point. Its a lecture on current tax system in India by Rajiv Dixit called "Rajiv Dixit VAT" on youtube.com. After watching that I felt that we haven't got our Independence yet. Its time we make people aware what our corrupt government is doing. I hope you will read this!

And here's some more...

I am sure that Aamir's press clippings are read to him by many even if he doesn't read them himself. His one project at a time approach creates this all or nothing scenario which can be very risky in his industry. But nothing seems to faxe him. Nothing. This little know actor by the name of Vishal O. Sharma ( who does a brilliant job in Peepli Live) says that Aamir Khan has given him and many others the opportunity to exhibit their talents. Aamir immediately corrects Vishal that he is nobody to give anybody an opportunity. To paraphrase him, it is the film Peepli Live, beautifully written and directed by Anusha Rizvi, which has created the opportunity for various talents to collaborate together. Chase excellence, success will follow. Alongwith humility and legacy.

Thanks for who you are and what you do.

Aamir, just a piece from my blog...

When Rancho in 3 Idiots says chase excellence and success will follow, you believe it because the man saying it is the epitome of it in his profession. Takes a lot of courage. I mean, you have got to be human and look at what is at stake at least for one fleeting moment. You build up this reputation, this fan following, this success streak and then about once a year or so risk everything and bare yourself completely to millions of people on a Friday for a couple of hours. Because you say that you read this script and it touched your heart and and you felt that you needed to do it or produce it or direct it or whatever. But doesn't your past success blur your vision with some sense of caution? At least some symptoms of 'Arrival Syndrome'? How can you be so relentless in your pursuit of excellence and visualize it to be so big and so overwhelming that it dwarfs the sound of your enviable trakc record?

Hi Aamir,

I am a great fan of urs since childhood. I loved Peepli Live. I like ur attitude to think out of the box. The 'Incredible India' ad is amazing and inspiring too.....Belated Happy Independence Day to u........

I also try doing something or the other for India on the regular basis. I am of the opinion that 'Doosro ke hhatgo mein mehendi lagane se khud ke haath bhi rang jaate hain..' I am with u on ur nationwide campaign of 'Incredible India' and 'Atithi Devo Bhava'......

Keep it up!!!!!!

Hey Aamir,

Happy Independence Day to you too! I saw your Incredible India commercial in taking pride being an Indian.

That really inspired me a lot and I decided to do something for my country sitting thousands of miles away from the motherland.

I am currently in the US and am a certified skydiver. So I decided to jump off the plane at 14,000 ft with our National Flag. Here are the links to the video and photo:
