July 30th, 2010 - 3:48 pm ICT by IANS  

Aamir Khan Mumbai, July 30 (IANS) Aamir Khan is known to give his heart and soul to his projects and the superstar admits that he’s extremely nervous as his production venture “Peepli Live” nears its release date.
“As 13th Aug gets closer, the butterflies in my stomach are really beginning to flutter around. Have lost my appetite and my sleep,” Aamir wrote on his blog.

“I’m really depending on you guys (audiences) this time round for support. This is an especially tough one with no big stars and a film based in a rural background.”

“For those of you living outside India please tell all your friends, neighbours, collegues, gardners etc, who may not have ever seen an Indian film before, to give this one a try. Assuming you like it of course,” he added.

Directed by debutant Anusha Rizvi, “Peepli Live” is a satire on society. It revolves around two impoverished farmers - Natha (Omkar Das Manikpuri) and Budhia (Raghubir Yadav) - who live in a village called Peepli. They are about to lose their land due to their debts.

An incompetent politician suggests they commit suicide to get government help. The news spreads and the media turns Natha into a celebrity.
