As reported earlier, ace actor Aamir Khan is all
set to make a break through in the television industry. The show
tentatively titled Mera Bharat Mahaan
, is said to be based on the lines of the flagship chat show, The Oprah Winfrey Show
the initial shoot for the maiden episode grew pretty autonomous when
the people on the sets saw their host - Aamir - breaking down again and
again during the course of the show. Sources reveal that for the sake
of spontaneity, Aamir had avoided prior meeting with the guests of the
programme and thus his reactions came naturally.
source from the sets stated that the shoot for the first episode passed
by quite emotionally as Aamir broke down quite a few times, resulting
in taking many breaks to return to his normal self. However, it was not
just him, apparently many from the set and audience let loose a few
teary drops, leading to the atmosphere being very charged up
yet remaining somber. And throughout all of this, Khan's wife, Kiran
Rao, was on stand-by to support hubby even though not being a part of
the creative team.
For the records, the title
'Mera Bharat Mahaan' had already been registered by Ekta Kapoor's
Tele-films, but on the modest request of Khan, the telly queen
graciously allowed the title to be used!
those excited, there's still some time for the show to hit our screens
but the interim, Khan can been seen in a villainous role in Dhoom 3 and Reema Kagti's untitled next!
Perfectionist has been loved by one and all on the big screen, but can
he spread the same charm on the viewers of the small screen?
