Mumbai: The versatile actor who has enthralled us through the years with great entertaining films was at the Mirchi studio last Friday morning to talk about his latest production ‘Peepli Live’. Aamir Khan was live on Mumbai’s No. 1 morning show ‘Hi Mumbai’ with RJ Jeeturaaj.
The affable Aamir was heard enjoying himself in a friendly conversation with RJ Jeeturaaj, while Mirchi listeners were treated to exclusive stories on ‘Peepli Live’, the touching tale of the populace of rural India and their travails. Sharing a special anecdote on his latest production, Aamir said, “The ethos of Peepli Live is perfectly blended with the spirit of independence. On Aug 15th, 1947, Mahatma Gandhi was in a remote village addressing the issues of the poor people. In the same way, Peepli Live also salutes the undying spirit of the real heroes of our country, the hardworking villagers and gives us a reminder to enrich their lives in ways we can.”
The talented actor complimented Jeeturaaj’s bindass style and his prowess in different languages. It was a moment to be cherished for Mirchi listeners when RJ Jeeturaaj was given the moniker of ‘The Perfect Indian Dude’ by Mr. Perfectionist himself!
Mumbai witnessed a candid Aamir enjoying his morning cup of coffee to the fullest on ‘Hi Mumbai’. He spoke of how he himself was not allowed into the village of Peepli, during filming, due to security reasons!
