Mumbai: Superstar Aamir Khan skipped a special cricket match today organised by his son Junaid due to some urgent work.

Junaid had organised a fund-raiser Twenty20 celebrity cricket match that was played today at Brabourne Stadium between Bollywood stars and physically-challenged individuals.

Junaid and his college (HR college) club had put up the match together, which was aimed at sending a message that disability was no handicap.

"I had asked dad when he would be free for this match and he gave me the date May 1. But he got some work and hence could not make it here... It`s ok," Junaid said.

A star-studded team from Bollywood included Aamir`s close friend Salman Khan and his brothers Arbaaz and Sohail, Rani Mukherjee, Esha Kopikkar, Aftab Agnihotri, Prateik Babbar, Atul Kulkarni, TV actors Dilip Joshi and Disha Vakani.

"Aamir has a show coming up...," an ecstatic Salman said hinting that due to Aamir`s busy schedule, he could not make it for the match.

The show `Satyameva Jayate`, Aamir`s debut on TV, will go on air from May 6.
