Mumbai: Known for his perfectionist ways, there is no match to the promotional tactics used by Aamir Khan for his films’ publicity. However, this time ‘Mr Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan surprised everyone by refusing to promote his home production ‘Delhi Belly’. Earlier, the actor handed over the promotions of ‘Dhobi Ghat’ to wife Kiran Rao, and now he wants to stay in background for ‘Delhi Belly’ promotions.

News has it that mamu Aamir is very impressed with the way nephew Imran has promoted his recently released ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ and his upcoming movie ‘Break Ke Baad’. And now, Aamir wants Imran Khan to handle all the promotional activities concerning his forthcoming flick ‘Delhi Belly’. Imran Khan plays one of the lead protagonists in ‘Delhi Belly’.

When contacted by a news daily, Imran confirms the news saying, “Yes, I have been told that I will have to shoulder the responsibility of promoting ‘Delhi Belly’.”

Directed by Abhinay Deo, ‘Delhi Belly’ is all set to release in April 2011.
