Aamir Khan Cried and Cried and Cried in Katti Batti
Reader, in the unlikely event that you happen to be seated next to Aamir Khan at a movie, make sure you have an XL-sized pack of tissues. Because he’s going to cry all over himself and you.
Aamir, 50, bawled like a baby when he watched upcoming film Katti Batti, starring his nephew Imran Khan and actress Kangana Ranaut. Director Nikhil Advani said, “It’s a tearjerker. The last 22 minutes and I literally had to sit and hold the tissue box for Aamir. He has copious tears! And he was crying and crying and crying. And I was so happy.”
It wasn’t just that once, Nilkhil said. The floodgates were opened several times: “You watch it once that’s great. After that, he sat with me 10 days in the edit and every day he would cry! Everyone would be like – ‘?’ And he would be like, ‘I can’t help it yaar.”
Corroboration from Imran: “Properly he cries! And the thing is, even later on. So he’s watched the film, he’s given us feedback, he’s watching this section for the second or third time and he’s…” *mimes wiping tears*
Here’s why we can totally believe that. A little over a month ago, Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan made Aamir so weepy that he required a towel to wipe his tears and hadn’t finished doing so by the time he exited the cinema – much to the delight of the cameras.
Aamir’s tears are apparently legendary. Last week, Twinkle Khanna told the audience at her book launch that her husband Akshay Kumar cries at the movies “like Aamir.”
