Two bits of good news and one bad.   

First the good news.

Folks!!! Its finally released! The DVD of TZP is out in the market!

I wanted to be totally sure before I spoke about it on my blog because there were too many false alarms in between. So today we went to Darsheel’s school and Darsheel’s principal Mrs Bajaj was kind enough to do the honors.

The other bit of good news is that Disney has decided to release the DVD in the U.S., U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Canada. I was very happy to know that they liked the film enough to want to distribute TZP in home entertainment for these 5 countries.

Now for the bad news…… and I know I am going to be slaughtered for this one. Disney has a lead time of at least 3 months. They want to do a mainstream release in these 5 markets. So while the DVD has released in India and outside India as well, in these 5 countries it will be a few more months before it comes out.

Now, before those of you living in these 5 countries kill me, please understand that I have no control over this. The only other option would be to not go ahead with Disney’s offer. But I felt that I would like the mainstream audiences in these places to also have the option of seeing this film. If I’m not mistaken this is probably a first for any Indian film except for Lagaan which was released by Columbia Tristar, but that was more because Sony TV India had originally bought the film. Sawaria which was also Sony I am assuming also got a mainstream release, but that was also produced by Sony. So I think this the first time that an Indian film has been picked up by a major distributor independently for a mainstream release.

More importantly, how many films are made on child care? So I want as many people as possible (no matter which part of the world they live in, including people who are not normally exposed to Indian Cinema) to get the chance to see this particular film.

My sincere apologies to those of you living in these 5 countries, and who have been waiting patiently for the DVD to come out.

I am dying to tell you what all in this DVD pack, but first y’all digest this info. Have worked really hard on this DVD and I sincerely hope y’all find it worth the wait.

I just wanted to let you know how much I loved loved loved TZP...
i moved to New York from Los Angeles for med school and it's been
kinda crazy to adjust. My mom just recently mailed me a care
package with TZP in the contents. I miss the fam back home a lot
so every time I think of them I either watch or crank my ipod to
the song Maa and my roommate and I just cry lol it doesn't even
have to be the song, just seeing Darsheel makes us gush and we
feel allll better

I just joined your site, and I have to say w-o-w... i've loved
you since Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and the obsession continues =)

Dear Mr. Khan, Congratulations that ur DVD is out. I had a look
of it when I was in India this June. However, there was something
I wanted to ask since I watched you believe in the
"Jame Raho" song. If yes, why? I thought the concept f this song
very escapist.
Rgds, V

Hi Aamir...

Only recently I got to watch the movie "Taare Zameen Par" and to
tell you, it really made me THINK...Thanks a ton...I believe we
need more such movies on effective parenting...Thats where the
game is won or lost...I always believe "There are no bad
children...there are only bad parents"

Hey Amir,

I am one of the biggest fan of your work as a actor and as a
director. I have a idea of a story and a decent story if you were
interested. It is about spirituality which is lacking in today's
world and actually people who live in constant spirituality
around you. This can connect to everyone as most people may have
everything or not have it. Contentment is always something never
felt consistantly. I know you take risks on new stories and this
one is somewhat like that. Please let me know i have happen to
peak your interest. You can mail me back at
