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.

I loved your take on Black, completely agree. I was pulling my
hair out when nobody would agree to my opinion and everyone would
look at me like 'Has she gone crazy'. So, I am glad to see an
actor of your calibre has similar thoughts! Oh I feel so happy :)
I have only recently been bitten by the Bollywood bug and hence
only got to know about this blog, Much better than Amitabh
Bachchan's blog, I get tired reading it half way through and gave
up on it in 2 days.
Not a big fan of Lagaan though, don't know I could not make much
sense out of the storyline, fun to watch movie. But since evryone
has praised it so much, there must be something to it, I just
don't have the artistic capabilities to understand it I suppose.
Haven't seen TZP, will catch it on DVD. Though I don't believe in
it being good just because it got so many awards ....but since
some trusted friends have praised it, I should watch it.
And, lastly I welcome myself to Aamir Khan's blog.

Dear Amir,
I must say a big "THANK U AND GOD BLESS U" to you for TZP. My
daughter is normal but she also often writes mirror images of
alphabets and numbers. She did get a hand or two for such silly
mistakes, but your film has greatly helped us in understanding
the problem and are in a better postion to know the child. I am
your ardent fan and encourage you to keep up your good work.
See you in Dubai, if you do visit.

hello there.

Aamir, I would like to quote the following extract from your blog
to put things in perspective.
"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."
But isn't the same thing being depicted in the initial part of
Taare Zameer Par? The character Ishan is treated badly by his
parents, teachers in school. Only his brother to some extent is
shown to be treating him normally. Just something for you to
think over.

do that, would appreciate if u gve in little of ur tme to talk

SO SORRY about your pain Aamir. the healing will be quick though.
I sincerely do believe becoming mildly sick, or encoutering a
mild injury is a disguise for reminders for us to breathe, pay
attendtion to ourselves, to pay attention to others, overall
reminder of humitiy, or to provide us a base on which we can
empathize . Well, best wishes for a speedy recovery .

Take good ccae and take the time to attend to yourself!!
