Aamir Khans virtual presence at Star Screen Awards..
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is known for his firm beliefs as far as work is concerned and is also famous for not attending award functions because he believes that they’re all rigged. At the recently held Nokia 14th Star Screen Awards (to be aired on Star Plus on Jan 27, 7 30 pm onwards), the organizers placed a huge cut-out of Aamir Khan from the film Taare Zameen Par to make up for his absence at the function.

Aamir’s latest release Taare Zameen Par bagged 17 nominations in the award function. Conspicuous by Aamir’s absence, the organisers still wanted the audience to feel his presence and hence each time his name was announced, the camera would move to an Aamir cut-out placed in the audience for his virtual presence. Host Sajid also ended up making a dig at the actor’s nonappearance during the award ceremony.

The highlight of the evening was also the announcement of the Best Director Awards. For the first time at an award function, The Best Director Award went to not just one, but two well-deserving people, Aamir Khan for Taare Zameen Par and Shimit Amin for Chak De.

Remember to tune in to STAR Plus for all the excitement of Nokia 14th Annual STAR Screen Awards on Sunday, January 27th, 7.30 pm onwards.
