The washer and dryer effect.   
Jan,21,2008
 

My God! The past few months have been quite a ride. And the last month the most exciting, nerve racking, exhausting, rejuvenating, draining, enriching. Am I ever going to recover? I feel like I’ve been stuffed into a washing machine which doesn’t have an off button. After this I really need to be put out to dry in the sun and left alone. But no such luck. I start shooting for GHAJINI on the 22nd. So…

Let me take baby steps towards recovery.

First things first… I have just smoked my last cigarette before sending this post. YES I HAVE FINALLY KICKED THE BAD HABIT!!! I know I know, I can already hear all of y’all scream and shout. I was supposed to give up on 31st. But I didn’t (which is one of the reasons I was avoiding posting). I tried my best… but I''m sorry I couldn’t then… but I have now… so please don’t give me grief… instead support me now.

Second step: get back to sleeping early.

Third: Work out religiously.

4th: Get back on my healthy diet.

5th: Just stick to the above 4 for a while before taking the 5th step.

To do list:
1. Work on the DVD of TZP.
2. Work on the release plan of JAANE TU… AKP’s next release.
3. Supervise prep on DELHI BELLY which starts shoot in March.
4. Start prep work on the other one that AKP is producing later this year yet untitled.
(all this while I shoot for GHAJINI. And you guys complain I don’t do enough work.)
5. Make innovations and progress on this site.
6. Clean my study, clean my cupboard. So much junk has piled up in my rooms. Everyday I look at the mess and promise myself I’ll get down to it at some point.

I really have to get back some order in my life.

In the meantime let us celebrate India’s win over Australia. What a glorious win! Sweet and well deserved. We would have won the earlier test as well had it not been for remarkably bad luck with the umpiring. All the more satisfying because we beat a team which is unfortunately very arrogant and decidedly badly behaved on the cricket field. My sincere apologies to any fans of Australian Cricket but I fail to understand why arguably the best team in the world has to behave so badly on the field. Or why this team feels the need to use excessively aggressive heckling to try and win a match. Cant they just play better? I mean I don’t see Federer or Roddick misbehaving with each other or anyone. Well each to his own I guess. I just wish the Indian team didn’t get influenced by this childish display and respond in kind. We should just quietly play better and win… or lose, as the case may be. But play with dignity.

While on behavior and dignity, I am deeply disappointed with those of you who have watched TZP on a pirated DVD/VCD, or when illegally shown on cable, or on websites which have illegally uploaded the film. How can you be my fans, or fans of Indian Cinema, or any cinema for that matter if you steal from us? Sad.

To the rest of you, first of all I want to thank you for the respect and regard you have shown by watching the film through honest means. Your heartfelt responses to TZP are absolutely overwhelming and have left me speechless, with a warm glow within me. Cant describe it any better. Have made notes over the past few weeks in response to specific posts, but have abandoned that exercise. Maybe I’ll get into that later. Just want to thank all of you for expressing yourselves with so much generosity and sensitivity.

Having been so supportive of the film y’all will be happy to know that TZP has crossed to business of RDB.

At this point I would like to publicly thank the cast and crew of TZP for being so supportive to me in my debut film. I would not have been able to achieve the film without the hard work and commitment from all who have been involved in the entire process. Right from the research to the release.

Much love.

I think, Aamir, your energies are best used in making good
movies. So pls do not bother to answer any comments personally. I
am sure we all understand.

You are born to make movies and pls do not get bogged down by
anything else. Not by blogging nor by any controversy.

Hi Amir,
I agree to your comment that we should not be watching movies on
pirated DVDs or online posts. But, living in the US, there are
very few cities where Hindi movies are screened same time as
their international release. (I promise I watched TZP in the
movie theater!) This does make lots of folks like us tempted to
watch movies online especially much awaited movies like TZP! I
think film industry should find out a way to address this problem
if you really want to curb piracy. I read about releasing movies
online with the same day as the theater release but at a paid
price. I don't think people will mind paying to watch a movie
online if they can get to watch it the same day when it is
released. And with movies like TZP I can assure people will
definitely pay to watch it online. There is a huge network of
Indian community is the smallest city of the US. Sounds like a
good business idea??

DArsheel was definetly the main actor in TZP and was well
deserving of his nomination for Best Actor for Filmfare Awards,
he really was as good as Shahrukh or any others who were
nominated I was really happy he got the award for best actor
Critics some acknowledge is better than nothing for such young
Talent. Can't get enough of you boy!!!!
Love YOu Dude :)

Have few questions Aamir,
First things first...Good luck trying to do all the above things
u said you wanna do- Def. not possible is what I think, or maybe
I should say 60% is possible out of your list, but then again i
am no superman and do know u r one!
Comming to the questions: Is it true u had 6 pack for GJ song and
put on weight and again magically produced a 6 pack in 3 weeks-
hard to believe, but hey Superman anything is possible with
you..How the hell do you do it? any tips on workout and diet?

And hoping you would see this comment ask you again - any plans
to visit MN, USA? beautiful locations here and more than anything
i wish to get you here on a holiday! if you know what Holiday
mean that is!!!
u-da-man, if ever i make a movie in my life you will be my
inspiration!!!!
