Double celebration for Aamir
A new hairstyle and truce with Bachchan
It is finally gone. After weeks of speculation, Aamir Khan has finally chopped his hair for the film Ghajini. The actor managed to overcome his initial nervousness as hairstylist Avan Contractor set to work on him at his Pali Hill residence, in the presence of his wife Kiran Rao and close friends Prasoon Joshi and A.R. Murugadoss. Avan has also created a 'scar' at the back of his head.
The entire process is said to have taken an hour-and-a-half. Looking a far cry from his long-haired Mangal Pandey days, Aamir is quite satisfied with his new look.
According to him, Ghajini is a thriller and the look is an important aspect of the character he is playing. In fact, so happy was Aamir with his cut that he threw an impromptu party.
For Aamir, there was another reason to celebrate. Big B finally found time to meet him. It happened 3 days ago, when Aamir turned up at Mehboob Studio where Amitabh Bachchan is shooting for Aladin. After the Bachchan-Khan war of words over Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Black, Aamir had wanted to meet the Big B and clear the air. But Bachchan had maintained that he was too busy to meet him.
Apparently, Aamir arrived on the sets of the film and went straight to Bachchan and spoke to him for a while and left. He did not interact with the other actors of the film. However, Big B is keeping silent about the meeting, calling it just a courtesy call by Aamir.
