Aamir-KhanWe know that the header and the pic on the left corner is gross injustice to the director of the film Anusha Rizvi, but we also know that when the film will release it will be marketed as a film from Aamir Khan Productions. Because thats the name which sells the tickets! The film has been produced by Aamir Khan. Anusha used to work with english news channel NDTV 24X7 before turning filmmaker and is now ready with her debut film titled The Falling.

The film stars Raghuvir Yadav, Onkar Das , Nowazuddin , Naseeruddin Shah and Aamir Bashir.  Weekly film newspaper Screen has published the story/plot/synopsis of the film. To quote…

The Falling, is not just a take on farmer suicide but also on media’s obsession with ‘breaking news’ and publicity-hungry politicians. While Raghuvir Yadav plays the role of a farmer who announces his suicide days in advance, Nawaz (last seen in New York and Dev D ) essays the role of an aspiring hotshot reporter who decides to go town with Yadav’s announcement. His news catches the attention of news channels and politicians, which in turn results in Yadav’s character failing to commit suicide. The story’s irony lies in the fact that Nawaz’s character, which unknowingly acts as a catalyst in saving the farmer’s life, kills himself after he finds himself disagreeing with the ethical standards being practised by certain sections of the media. Interestingly, while shooting across homes, fields and roads at Badwai village near Bhopal, the unit managed to keep reporters, shutterbugs as well as locals at bay.

All you folks who have been busy scratching heads trying to figure out if its for real or not and why its non-stop all of a sudden, here is the real dope. From Khan insider.

Shahrukh has always been taking digs at Aamir Khan. On his height, his attitude, being perfectionist and for taking himself too seriously. But Aamir never bothered much. All hell broke loose last year when Ghajini and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi were about to release. In an interview SRK said that post 26/11 attack in Mumbai, people should not be exposed to any more violence, even violent films, its not the right time and the right environment. It was easy guess, he was refering to Ghajini. This was the final quote that did it. Before that it was all in good spirit.

Aamit felt that SRK is trying to sabotage his film. Convincing people not only to watch RNBDJ but dissuading them from watching Ghajini. Aamir decided ab aur nahi. And thats how the Khan slang match started. We aren’t complaining!

The two recently came together to support United Producers Form on the producer-multiplex revenue issue. Fellas, dont fool yourself and believe that its for the larger cause. Its only because Aamir (as producer) has three releases this year – Dhobi Ghaat, Delhi Belly, The Falling and Shahrukh (as co-producer) has My Name is Khan. Its all about money, honey!

ps : Bijlis of PVR multiplex chain met Aamir Khan, requested him not to support the producers forum. But Aamir refused.  BTW, PVR co-produced Aamir’s Taare Zameen Par.
