Peepli Live took me back to my birthplace: Big B
“Aamir invited Jaya and myself to view his film Peepli Live and then for dinner to his house. The film took me back to my place of birth and deposited me within the distinct atmosphere of my roots, and I loved that.”
“But apart from that, it was a superb film, even the wife loved it. And we all know how she is with her own brand of films,” Amitabh, who was born in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, posted on his blog.
Peepli Live is former journalist Anusha Rizvi’s satirical satirical take on farmer suicides in India and how media and politicians tackle the issue.
The film, which has little known actors, has received rave reviews.
The 67-year-old recommends that everyone watch the film.
“Aamir’s wife Kiron speaks fluent Bengali, so Jaya and she had a ball – Aamir and me had the food!” Amitabh posted on Twitter.
Aamir and Amitabh have been bonding a lot lately. They also met over a dinner while the two actors were in London in June, following which the latter convinced Aamir to join Twitter.
