Aamir Khan has a legion of fans, but Ram Lakhan, an auto rickshaw driver from Varanasi, is special. Special enough to invite the star to his son’s wedding, believing that the actor will accept it.
When Aamir toured the country in various disguises while promoting his 2009 film, 3 Idiots, he had met Lakhan in Varanasi, and bonded with him over three days, says a member of Aamir’s entourage.
It’s been almost three years but Lakhan hasn’t forgotten the bond, and he recently arrived in Mumbai with a wedding invitation for the actor.
“Aamir is touched by this gesture,” says the insider.
Aamir’s spokesperson further adds, “It’s not yet confirmed but he is trying to make time for it.”
Aamir is currently wrapping up the final episodes of his TV show, Satyamev Jayate, after which he will start shooting for Dhoom 3.
