As part of promotions for 3 Idiots, Aamir was recently travelling in an auto-rickshaw in Varanasi and met with an accident. Aamir was unhurt, his publicist said.
The auto-rickshaw the actor was travelling in collided with another three-wheeler. Aamir was unhurt but one of his two co-travellers sustained several bruises. He was taken to a medical centre and discharged soon after.
"At around 5 am on Sunday, while returning from the Dasaswamedh Ghat where he had taken a boat ride, the auto ahead of Aamir's rickshaw tilted due to the potholes on the road. To avoid a collision, Aamir's rickshaw was forced to grind to a halt. Due to the impact, a co-passenger was hurt," a source told a tabloid.
Aamir's publicist confirmed the mishap and told the tabloid, "He was lucky to be saved. He did not sustain any injuries." The actor has been travelling in disguise as part of a marketing strategy for his forthcoming film 3 Idiots. The actor has a launched a game to hunt him.
He will be travelling across the country and his friends will give clues which would help people locate him. The winner gets to spend New Year's Eve with Aamir and his family.
