Aamir Khan was reportedly at loggerheads with Amitabh Bachchan thanks to criticism in his blog about Big B’s film Black and his acting in it. This was at the time when Aamir’s directorial debut Taare Zameen Par was about to be released. Much was later written in the media about each other’s comments to each other.
But then all mouths got shut when Amitabh Bachchan made an appearance at Aamir’s production Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na premiere at PVR Multiplex in Goregaon, Mumbai. He not only congratulated Aamir’s nephew Imran Khan who debuted with the film but also made appearance on news channels when the Jaane Tu team was being questioned by the nation. He spoke on TV how good the film was and also praised Imran’s acting and Aamir’s marketing skills. Then there was a buzz in the media about Aamir directing Big B in his next directorial, which was meant to be a sci-fi thriller. But it remained just a rumour as Aamir denied that.
Now Aamir has expressed his concern for the ageing superstar. He said, “I am in regular touch with Abhishek over Amitji’s health. I am SMSsing him at regular intervals to get his health update. I am happy to find out now that he is in stable condition and that he shall be discharged anytime soon. I have been really busy with my work that’s why I haven’t got a chance to go and visit him in the hospital. But I will definitely take some time out and visit him at his house.”
When we asked Aamir what kind of programmes he prefers to watch on TV, he replied, “I like comedy serials like FRIENDS. Amongst the kind of channels that I like to watch are History Channel, Discovery Channel and Sports Channels.”
