Thursday, September 16, 2010

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is a happy man. His wife Kiran Rao's directorial debut Dhobi Ghaat premiered to an overwhelming response at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The film, which was shown at the Elgin Garden Theatres in Toronto, received tremendous acclaim from the audience present, reports IANS.

"Thank you to all of you who came to the screening and for giving such a warm welcome to the Dhobi Ghat team. We are having a great time at TIFF. And we are all relieved that people like the film," Aamir posted on his blog.

Aamir plays the role of the painter Arun. Apart from him Monica Dogra, Prateik Babbar and Kriti Malhotra play key roles in the film. Set in Mumbai, the film revolves around four people who are separated by class and language but are drawn into compelling relationships.

The Bollywood star said intially he was keen to play the role of Munna the washer boy. "When I read the script first, I just fell in love with Munna because he is such a wonderful character. But I said there is no way I can play Munna because he is so young.” said Aamir Khan.

Complimenting his wife, he said: "Kiran is a hugely talented director. She is another important addition to creative talent in Indian cinema."
