Aamir Khan who was promoting Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Naa in a big way last year is now going slow as a producer. Buzz is that he’s planning to take wife Kiran Rao’s Dhobi Ghat and Anusha Rizvi’s The Falling (tentative title) on farmers’ plight to international film festivals first, before planning their theatrical release since they are off the beaten commercial path.
"He’s pleased with the way the movies have shaped up and keen to get feedback from the prestigious festivals first. Depending on that, he’ll figure out his marketing strategy," says a source close to the actor.
Work on Dhobi Ghat came to a halt after Kiran Rao suffered a miscarriage. Khan immediately took his wife off for a holiday in Europe to help her recuperate.
Back in Mumbai, he wrapped up 3 Idiots before overseeing the post-production of both Dhobi Ghat and The Falling.
Adds the source, “Aamir’s keen to wrap up both films by November so he’ll have enough time to promote 3 Idiots that is scheduled for a December 25 release.”
