`Peepli Live`, a thoughtful and comic look at Indian society: Aamir
New York: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan promoted his upcoming film ‘Peepli Live’ in New York and said it is very funny and thought provoking.
“I really like the script. It is a funny film. It takes a very comic look on our society, so it is very funny and along with it is a very thought provoking film, so I liked it very much,” said Khan.
`Peepli Live`, which is produced by Khan, stars Khan, Naseeruddin Shah and Malaika Shenoy among others.
Khan further added that actors of this movie are all debutants.
“I think actors of this film have done a great job. In fact, the actors of this film are all new but the kind of work they have done it - when I saw the movie, I felt that I have been working since 20 years, but these actors are 10 times ahead of me in their first film. So they have done very good work, and I think when you will see the movie you will not believe that you are seeing it. You will feel it is actually happening and it has its own fun,” added Khan.
Aamir Khan also said that he is working on his forthcoming movies ‘Dhobi Ghat’ which is written and directed by his wife, Kiran Rao, and ‘Delhi Belly’, both of which he is producing.
`Peepli Live` is the fourth film of Khan`s Productions Limited, which also produced ‘Taare Zameen Par’, `Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na` and `Once Upon a Time in India`.
The film is slated for release on August 13.
