Aamir Khan was reportedly left ‘teary-eyed’ after viewing Ranbir Kapoor’s Barfi!. The actor, who’s presently in Chicago filming for Dhoom 3, is said to have requested a non-public screening of the movie for the cast and team since he’d been unable to catch the movie on its launch in India.
A source informed, a special screening of the Ranbir Kapoor movie was organized in Chicago, USA. Aamir and a few of the people in the cast of Dhoom 3 observed the film together. “Aamir Khan totally enjoyed the movie. He’d tears in his eyes with a bit of the film. Even the others who viewed it had only good stuff to say about it.” A representative from UTV affirmed that a special screening had been arranged at Aamir Khan’s request.
Barfi! has been chosen as India’s official entry in the ‘Best Foreign Film’ category at the Oscars. Lagaan, starring Aamir Khan, was selected for an Oscar in 2002, but lost out to the Bosnian entry No Man’s Land.
