With only a few days to go before his TV debut with Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan is a busy man. And that explains his absence from the recently held premiere of Hollywood superhero flick The Avengers in the city.
Organised by UTV Motion Pictures, which is marketing and distributing the film in India, the event was attended by eminent names from the film industry. However, Aamir will watch the film with his family at a special screening that will be organised by the distributers this weekend. “He will be busy shooting for Satyamev Jayate until April 27, so the screening will be held on April 28 or April 29, depending upon his availability,” says a source from the distributing company.
Shikha Kapur, senior vice president of UTV Motion Pictures confirmed the plan, “There are also a couple of very special friends who could not make it because of prior commitments. We are happy to hold a special screening for them and their families,” she says.
The Tuesday premiere was attended by filmmakers Ashutosh Gowariker, Abhinay Deo, Sajid Khan, Nikhil Advani and Sudhir Mishra. Actors Neha Dhupia, Ranveer Shorey and Sara-Jane Dias, Neha were also spotted at the do.
The Avengers, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, brings together various
iconic characters like Iron Man, Captain America and Nick Fury, played by actors Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans and Samuel L Jackson, respectively. The film will hit theatres in India on April 27.
