Kiran Rao to make acting debut with 'Peekay'

Rajkumar Hirani is a name synonymous in Bollywood with great script and off beat movies. He has earlier delivered mega hits such as Munna Bhai M.B.B.S (released in the year 2003), Lage Raho Munnabhai (released in the year 2006) and 3 Idiots (released in the year 2009). Therefore his next project is eagerly awaited by the movie goers and the critics alike. When shooting for his next project ‘Peekay’ began, the interest was very high on getting every news related to it.

Incidentally Aamir Khan is working in the project too. It is after ‘3 Idiots’ that the duo of Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan is working together again. The entire unit of the film is in Rajasthan, shooting now. Kiran Rao along with son Azad have moved in to Rajasthan to be with hubby Aamir Khan and plans to stay with him till the shooting wraps up.

Rumours are rife that Kiran Rao may make her first Bollywood acting debut in ‘Peekay’. She has been actively involved in film making behind the cameras and now we may see her in front of it. Her’s will be a cameo role in the movie. A source from the shooting unit said, “Raju is very keen that Kiran plays a cameo and since she is very much present on the sets, he has been coaxing her to do a small part.”

The unit is shooting at present in a Rajasthani village, named Mandva and Raju has already selected a few sequences where Kiran Rao can be a part of the backdrop. According to the source, “Kiran is also keen to do it and will be shooting one of the sequences but Raju wants to keep it as a surprise element.”

Taking a walk down the memory lane we remember the cult song ‘Papa kehte hai’ from the movie ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’. It was the debut movie for a very young Aamir Khan. His first wife Reena Datta also showed her face in the video of the song. However, at that time the news of their marriage was kept secret. Only after Aamir became a big name in Bollywood, the news of his marriage was made public.

Coming back to the present, we sure hope that Aamir and Kiran have a gala time together, along with their baby son. Let us wait for Kiran to appear on the celluloid soon.
