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.

This is my first post, and I must compliment you on this blog.
Your honesty and humility are commendable. Transparency is,
perhaps, the best policy in the face of all the media attention
that you already handle so gracefully.

As to Jaane Tu ~ That first promo is SO witty. Such a great
response to the glamour excess the industry is currently going
through. It's very Aamir Khan, stylistically.

The music sounds lovely, as is expected from A.R. Rehman. And
everyone in the film, as far as I can tell, looks great. Natural,
tasteful, real. I personally find that far more appealing than
the forced/excessive "sexy" makeovers currently so popular in the

Speaking of which, I must say that Imran is ridiculously
attractive in that easy, nonchalant way. I look forward to
watching the film.

Get Mansoor Khan to direct you and Rani.I am dying to see you
guys together in a light romantic comedy....and Mansoor is best
at that.Love his way of direction,with so much simplicity.
You have a blog and we can convey message to you,I am also a
great fan of Rani Mukherji and it hurts to see that she is such a
versatile actress and she is just spoiling her career just doing
Yash Raj movies which are pale and dumb.She is highly
talented,she needs someone who can tap her huge potential as an
actress.I would highly highly appreciate if you convey this
message to her.As a huge fan of her,I am highly dissapointed with
her work recently...she has stopped surprising her fans.Hope
someone tells her that to do meaningful films and not to blindly
depend on YRF.Thanks a lot in advance,Aamir for listening and
conveying the message.
As of the "jaane tu...." promo,I really liked it....Imran looks
real and Genelia is very cute...always liked her..

wish you all the very best

I first saw Gajni in Telegu, the language which I don't
understand. I was floored, I saw it in Tamil(my mother
tongue)...infact enjoyed it quite a lot....I am expecting a
better made movie from you..otherwise I will feel, you could not
match Surya....I know you think differently, so hope to see you
equalling Surya if not bettering that...

Your nephew shows promise but it is hard to say anything definite
till the movie releases.If genes are responsible for acting skils
then this boy should be a sure fire success!!

i think ur newphew is cute but the promo is short and i cant make
up how he looks like clear enough. i know that its perhaps due to
the promotion methods that the face isnt shown really in detail.
anyways why im pulling the talk dont knw :d heehee best of luck
for ur new project.
