Thanks for the drubbing on my smoking.   

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.

Hello Sir,
I've watched almost all your movies till now. I just love
Sarfarosh and TZP a lot. Any plans to make another film like
Sarfarosh, may not be similar but I love to see you in that kind
of movie once again. Atleast can we expect one more good movie
with combination of Aamir and John Mathew Matthan.

Hi Aamir...

To smoke or not is an individual's choice..But I really admire
the fact that you never smoked on screen in most of the admired
movies like QSQT, RDB, DCH, TZP.... it was only to a certain
extent in movies like JJWS, Rangeela where the role demanded
it.... On screen actors play a very influential role on the
growing generation and thank you very much for not communicating
an image of a real life smoker in reel life...

Its not cough cough amir its more than will take a
little bit longer to understand..i dont knw i have known so many
ppl who are very dedicated and honest towards their profession.
(including you)..but they become so imbalanced when they
overworked...then ..they think that smoking is the only way that
can make them balanced ...and i feel like interviewing them so
badly on this topic ..because it makes me wonder..i read ur
blogs..but never replied to anyone expect this because it makes
me wonder again why the hell u smoke???????

Thats precisely why I didnt go to see the movie. Whilst the
temptation was really high to see Amitabh and I wasnt sure how I
would react seeing a child being treated this way.
