Aamir Khan was seen wiping his tears with a towel after watching Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He was also spotted crying after watching Imran Khan-Kangana Ranaut-starrer Katti Batti.
Aamir Khan was recently a top trending topic on Twitter. Not because of a film or his talk show that he usually trends for, but because he cried at two back-to-back film screenings — Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming Katti Batti. Unaffected by the jokes and memes, the actor says that he is not afraid to show his emotional side, and in fact, had a good laugh at all the tweets.
Aamir Khan Cried after watching Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan:
Aamir Khan exiting theatre after watching Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The actor got very emotional and wiping his tears after screened.
The big, brown towel that he walked out wiping his tears with after watching Bajrangi Bhaijaan was quite the target of Twitterati, but Khan says that he had no other option. “When I started watching the film, I didn’t have a towel or anything. But I got very emotional in the second half, so I asked my boy to get me something, and he got me that,” he laughs
Not every actor would be comfortable being in the midst of flashbulbs, crying and wiping tears, but the 50-year-old says that he had no issues being photographed like that. “Why should I hide what kind of a person I am… I’m a highly emotional person and I’m not afraid to show it,” he says.
The climax of Bajrangi Bhaijaan moved many to tears, but what touched him so much in “Katti Batti” — his nephew Imran Khan’s and kangana Kangana Ranaut upcoming romantic film,He said it reminded him of his own life. “It’s an extremely emotional and moving story about the beliefs one has in love and the extent to which one goes for those beliefs
However, he does not tell us which part of his life or who he is referring to. “We should not go into that. Let’s not talk about my personal life,” he says. Since he is talking about the past, is he referring to his former wife Reena? “No, no,” he laughs.
Point taken, we leave that there, not wanting to take him into that zone again. There is buzz in the industry that he is taking a bit too much interest in Salman Khan’s film Sultan, which like Dangal, is also based on wrestling. Rumour goes that he has even suggested script alterations to the makers of Salman’s film to make sure that it’s not similar to Dangal. “No, That’s not true. The scripts are not similar at all. Salman is a dear friend …he’s just had a big hit in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and I am looking forward to Sultan. I am sure it would be a great film,” he says. When we are talking about Aamir and Salman, we surely can’t leave the third Khan out, so what’s his take on Shah Rukh’s recent comment that it’s possible to make a film with the three Khans. “If the script is good, why not?” he says.
