Alive but not kicking.   

By now y'all must have heard various accounts of my injury so I won't bore you with one more. Especially since there is no particularly death defying moment in it. It was quite a boring injury, no anecdotal value or excitement whatsoever. Roll camera, action, run into frame, grab heavy goon, slam him against wall, lift him and throw him against second wall, shout in pain, hop on one leg, wave arm to call for cut, limp off to nearest chair. End result is that I had injured the adductor muscle in my right thigh. Which in layman terms means my inner thigh. There have been many more exciting injuries I have received in my career but again let me spare you the gory details. Importantly I'm recovering well and have restarted shooting with muscle supports and belts.

I had mentioned sometime back that I would like to meet with some of you whenever I travel to some city. I am currently in Hyderabad and should be here till the 1st week of May. So those of you who would like to meet up should post your contact details and I will try my best to arrange a get together with a bunch of you picked randomly. All this depends of course on my shooting schedule allowing it.

In the meantime I am readying my self for my next release. JAANE TU.

When I say 'my' I mean Aamir Khan Productions'. After Lagaan and Taare Zameen Par this will be our third release and I am keen to complete a hat-trick. We completed our test screenings end of March, and Rahman has almost finished the background score. Today the first promo breaks on TV. It should be up on the website as well,

This will be the first film of my nephew Imran, I think I'll post a photo of him. Tell me what you think of the promo, and him.

Jaane Tu is the debut not only of Imran but also Abbas Tyrewala who has written and directed the film. Abbas who has is an established writer having written films like Munna Bhai MBBS, Maqbool, and Main Hoon Na among others has done a great job as a director. While I was busy with TZP he was doing JT, and when I saw the completed film it was an excellent translation onto screen of the script, which for me is the most imp yardstick for any filmmaker.

But the biggest news about JT is the return of Mansoor Khan!!!

Yes, I finally managed to lure Mansoor out of his hiding place. When I took over as director of TZP I needed a hands-on producer on JT so I requested Mansoor. To his credit despite his reluctance he did not hesitate to step in. I would like to think it was because of me but I suspect it was because of Nasir Sahab. Both Mansoor and I know that Nasir Sahab would have wanted the two of us to stand by Imran at this important juncture in his career. So Mansoor makes a return, albeit as Producer.

Meanwhile for those of you who want me to accept awards, I received one on the 24th at the august hands of Lata Mangeshkar. This is an award that the hugely talented Mangeshkar family has instituted in the name of their father Dinanath Mangeshkar. It was indeed an honour to be felicitated by the Dinanath Mangeshkar Trust and to be in such august company as the other winners. Especially since the only two male Hindi film actors to win this honour before me, if I''''m not mistaken, are Dilip Kumar and Amitji.

Aamir hope you are getting well after your injury.Wish you best
wishes for your health.

Janne Tu Ya Janne Na - Kabhi Kabhi Aditi ... i am listening this
song all over my evening today .... such a wonderful melody from
AR Rehman saab....

Imraan looks promising and lets see. Since this year will have so
many new comers to our Bollywwod and one has to make the first
and quick impression to get better spot in next year.

But one thing keeps riniging in my head why Abbas Tyrewala as the
director ? I am seeing he has the script , lyrics ( which are
great ) ... but directorial debut , is it's not a bit risky
proposition ?

I am reading Five Point someone now and looks very
interesting.Chetan Bhagat has written so simple things that
happen to everybody in the college and hostel life..... Hope
Idiots will also keep the same spirit.

It's late here now , almost 11:20 PM. So taking a good night for
today and hope to see your comments soon.

Hi aamir, Like everyone i was trying to look for the official
site of "Janne tu Ya Jaane Na ". I would suggest you to co -
ordinate with Google so that when somebody types the title of the
movie it show up as the first listing .

I couldn't get to it until i was reading through the blogs

you always make the right movies...and i just can't avoid that!
