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.

Hi Amy,

I love your new looks ----u looked cool! I recently saw u at the
inauguration ceremony of PVR at Mumbai. I was there with my
sister and kids for shopping and we were so so lucky to see you.
I waved at you when u were taking the elivator up on enterance.

You cast a spell on all the people and I was so excited on seeing
you. I didnt like your comments on Shahrukh, as i hold you in
high esteem and wont like that coming from you. I think you have
an different pedestral all together thats untouchable and these
are things one never expects from you.

Btw...u have a huge fan following on this blog and i dont know if
at all i will be spotted. Nevertheless, I wish you the best and
do continue writing more often - in return you get loads and
loads of love and cheers and blessings too!

Love, Pooja

Hi Aamir Sir! Watched the promos of Jaane Tu, d 1st one was
nice..very witty. Imran is a very good looking guy...but yeah,
I'll watch d movie & tell u if he is an equally good at acting.
As for the music of d movie..I watched the videos of two songs:
Pappu cant dance & Kabhi kabhi Aditi. The former is just a
mediocre song...I heard it more than three times but I still cant
remember even a line of d song :-P Imran isnt exactly a bad
dancer but he isnt a Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapur or for that
matter even u (in terms of his dancing skills). I liked the song
Kabhi kabhi Aditi..not only cuz its been shot in my college St
Xaviers but also cuz the video is really cute :-) The music is
pretty nice too :-) So yeah, there u go..I've told u what I think
bout Jaane Tu! But hey, how am I gonna know if u have read my
comment? After u read this, could u plz mention it in ur blog?
Thanks! Take care..

P.S: Ur hairstyle for Ghajini is amazing :-)

Hi, This is Sabina from Bangalore. I am happy that u have finally
apologised to Shah Rukh about the dog episode u had posted on ur
blog. I personally feel that a person of ur stature should not
comment like that and not have a pet named after famous people
wherein u would be unknowingly b pulled into a controversy which
wud mar ur image. Being a piscean myself I wud understand that u
wud not want to hurt anybody and we always stand for peace in the
