Aamir unveils first look of ‘Ghajini’ on DiwaliOctober 28th, 2008 - 5:21 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Oct 28 (IANS) A brawnier Aamir Khan unveiled the first look of his much-awaited film “Ghajini” here Tuesday. The one minute clip shows Aamir in his new six-pack abs, for which he had to work out three to four hours every day for several months.The film, which was scheduled for release on Diwali, will now hit the theatres on Christmas, Dec 25.
“We were planning to release the film on Diwali, but it did not happen because of my injury, so we decided to at least unveil its first look on this day,” Aamir told reporters. He also wished everyone a happy Diwali.
Aamir suffered a hamstring injury while filming a scene for the film in April. The scene required him to pick up and throw a heavy man against a wall.
The talented actor said he is looking forward to the film’s release as he has acted in a commercial movie after a long time.
“‘Ghajini’ is important for me as it is an out and out commercial movie which I am doing after a long time.”
On the absence of director A.R. Murugadoss on the occasion, Aamir said: “The post-production work for the film is going on full swing and our director is extremely busy with it.”
The film clip also shows leading lady Asin.
Aamir said it was quite difficult for him to work on his new looks as he was required to build a perfect body, including six-pack abs.
“After I finished ‘Taare Zameen Par’, I started to work on my look for the film. It was a tough time when I had to work on my body for nearly three to four hours a day.”
Jiah Khan, who plays second lead in the film, does not feature in the clip.
“Ghajini” is a Hindi adaptation of the Tamil film made by Murugadoss himself by the same name.
The film is said to be inspired by the critically acclaimed film “Memento” by Christopher Nolan on the theme of the protagonist suffering from anterograde amnesia (short term memory loss) and seeking revenge for his wife’s murder.
