New Delhi, June 16 (Calcutta Tube) This could have been the Clash of the Titans with the presence of supposed rivals Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan at the London premiere of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai starrer ‘Raavan’ Wednesday, if the latter had not missed the event for his mother.
While Shah Rukh got an invitation both from Abhishek and his megastar father Amitabh, Aamir was invited by the Big B himself.
‘Amitji invited me for the premiere of ‘Raavan’ in London when I was there. But I had to come here for my mother’s birthday on June 13 and go to Pune to be with her. However, I wish the movie gets success and all my best wishes to Abhishek and Aishwarya,’ said Aamir.
A bilingual, ‘Raavan’ is releasing Friday worldwide.
Makers of ‘Tere Bin Laden’ receive threat letter
Walkwater Media, the makers of Bollywood spoof ‘Tere Bin Laden’ have received an anonymous letter that threatens them with dire consequences if they release the film.
‘The person who addressed the letter to us has got the theme of the film ‘Tere Bin Laden’ all wrong. It doesn’t deal with terrorism least of all support it. It’s a light comedy,’ said a source from the production house that remains unfazed by the threat.
The source also informed that the letter stated that the producers shouldn’t release the film since it was in support of Osama Bin Laden and terrorism.
A tongue-in-cheek comedy, the movie is about a reporter from Pakistan who is desperate to migrate to the US in pursuit of the American dream. His repeated attempts to migrate are shot down as his visa is always rejected. But when things couldn’t look worse, he comes across an Osama bin Laden look alike.
Directed by debutant Abhishek Sharma, it stars Ali Zafar.
My Hindi has improved after ‘Raavan’: Vikram
