Thanks for the drubbing on my smoking.   
Nov,29,2007
 

Have stepped out of the mixing room for a bit and was checking my blog. I have to say that my family, especially my kids, are really happy with the kid of bashing I recieved from you all for my smoking. I completely agree that it is the worst thing anyone can do to damage one''''s health. Cough, cough. Point taken and will be acted upon.

Right now I am so over worked that I often dont know whether it is day or night.

On my comments on BLACK, let me start by commenting that I have the highest regard for Mr Bachchan and I am very big fan of his work. Probably one of the biggest. I believe that he along with Mr Dilip Kumar are among my two favourite actors of Indian Cimema. I have no hesitation in saying that I don''t even feature on the same platform as an actor. He is also in my opinion THE biggest star that Indian Cinema has ever seen. However as any member of the audience I too have a right to my opinion. And let me also clarify that my observations were towards the film and the way it was handled not towards any of the actors. I am very aware that the key of every performance is very much determined by the director.

My big exception towards Black is the fact that a child with severe difficulties is shown being illtreated instead of being treated with love, care and understanding. I simply cannot come to terms with that no matter what the writer and director say in defence. I thought I was watching a rip off of Taming Of The Shrew!!! I take great exception to this kind of behaviour towards children being glorified and propagated through a popular mass medium as the way to deal with children with or without difficulties. I, without any hesitation, strongly condemn this kind of cinema no matter who is involved with the film, and that includes me if I ever have in the past, present or future made such an error of judgement. My creative differences with Mr Bansali are unimportant. I believe he has the potential to make a good film and I look forward to seeing his latest film SAWARIA.

In response to some of your questions regarding TZP: It is a film about children, ALL children, and is aimed at parents, children, and potential parents. In fact for everyone who is a child or has been through childhood, which pretty much covers the whole gamut of age groups.

And now I am being called back into the mixing theatre.

I haven''''t forgotten about the scheduled chat and once I''''m done with my work will pick a date and time.

Much love.

Aamir.

To my dear Aamir, welcome to the land of the living and out of
the mixing room, even if only briefly. :-))))

You are of course completely correct as a member of the public
you are entitled to your opinion like the rest of us and should
be able to voice it freely.

Take care and I look forward to your scheduled chat when you are
available. Try not to leave it too long a wait though, :-))))))))

I wish you every success, and peace for you and your family,

Cheers, Michelle xoxox

DEAR AAMIR,
Very good to see your remark about Mr. Bachchan - and this
clarification wa VERY MUCH NEEDED and is WELL IN TIME. AAMIR, I
want to repeat my request to you to promote TZP by publishing
FULL PAGE ADS. IN ALL LEADING DAILIES OF ALL THE STATES OF INDIA
- this has never been done in the history of India - this is not
to glorify you or TZP but this is to make aware all the child in
every nook and corner of India. Hope you will consider.

First post! Or almost ,unless somebody beats me to it. I was
browsing casually, wondering if soffineer had reacted to what I
had written for her. And what do I get--a pleasant surprise,
Aamir, your latest blog entry. Have never caught your blog this
quick.
Anyway, glad you clarified your stand on Black, Bhansali and
Bachchan Sr. and now I hope all the bashing against you all over
the net will stop.
Read on net that you sounded super confident at the Nasa meet .
Well, we all hope that TZP will be a big critical[mainly] ,and
commercial success.
Regards and a hi to your family too.Lalita.

Welcome back Aamir...waiting for hearing the announcement on you
have stopped smoking. Had wrote abt it in Mumbai Mirror.
Appreciate the way you been trying to devote your time for us out
here.
Mr. Bachchan has given an interview just a day back on your
comments about Black, please kindly read that if you can in
Mid-day.
Are you having jitters releasing the film along Halla Bol
(directed by one of the best directors to have handled you in
comedy - Raj Kumar Santoshi) and ofcourse Welcome which is
already being touted to take a huge opening.
All the best for the mixing!
