Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao
Aamir Khan has joined his wife Kiran Rao and son Azad in Panchgani. The two were in the hill station when the superstar took off for a location hunt for Laal Singh Chaddha earlier this month. Back in Mumbai, he wrapped up his commitments and left for the farmhouse. The superstar always hops onto a chopper to reach Panchgani, instead of travelling by road. His mother Zeenat is also with him.
On Friday, he launched a digital school for agricultural practices as part of his NGO, Paani Foundation’s initiative. The first session was on soya bean farming. Rao has evinced interest in growing it and Khan will ensure the perfect produce. Kiran Rao was already spending time at their Panchgani abode with son Azad. The writer-director divides her time between their Pali Hill home and the sprawling farmhouse, which son Azad particularly loves. Lockdown spells the quietness of Panchgani for them.
On the other hand, Aamir Khan will shoot the final schedule of Laal Singh Chadha in Ladakh. The film is an official adaptation of the 1994 Hollywood hit 'Forrest Gump' starring Tom Hanks, and is set to release later this year. It is directed by 'Secret Superstar' maker Advait Chandan. Aamir is paired opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan. The film also stars Mona Singh and Vijay Sethupathi in important roles. Last week it was revealed South star Naga Chaitanya will also be part of Aamir'a film. Naga Chaitanya plays a crucial role in the Indian adaptation of Forrest Gump (1994). The actor’s character is said to be based on Benjamin Buford Blue aka Bubba, who becomes Gump’s best friend when the latter enlists into the US Army. While the two promise to turn business partners, Gump honours his commitment after Bubba is killed in the Vietnam War.
