New Still: Aamir Khan puts on lipstick in 'Peekay'
Superstar Aamir Khan has already broken several box office records with his 3 idiots. His fans are eagerly waiting for the release of his upcoming film Peekay. This is a political satire by Rajkumar Hirani and is scheduled to be released in June of next year. Fans were rather disappointed when the release was postponed – the original date was the Christmas of this year – due to problems of shooting schedule. However, as the first pictures of the superstar have been released, it can be said that the movie will be well worth the wait. After all, Aamir has been cross dressing in skirts, lipsticks and other accessories for the film!
Large parts of the movie have been shot in Belgium, but it does carry an authentic Dilli ki feel. Aamir Khan wore a yellow helmet with beads and headbands and was seen sporting lipstick as he started to shhot in the Dilli Haat early morning on Friday. One of the stall owners reported, "Aamir Khan toh subah 7 baje se shooting kar rahein hain yahan. Kitney alag lag rahe hain Humari shop ke aagey bhi woh aye they." But unfortunately, the actor did not buy anything. The stall owner said, "Had his wife Kiran accompanied him, he would have. Akele they toh kuch bhi nahi liya."
Delhi, with its strong political and cultural flavor has become
a favorite shooting ground for filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani. "I have been
scouting locations in Delhi for our shoot. From Humayun's Tomb to Qutub Minar,
Lal Quila, Hauz Khas and Purani Dilli, there is so much to explore," he
said. Meanwhile, Delhi CM, Sheila Dikshit thanked the filmmaker and the actor
for their presence in the capital on the World Tourism Day. Aamir said,
"I'm happy that we are celebrating World Tourism Day in Delhi this year
for it is not just a historical place, but India's tourism center too. Duniya
bhar ke log yahan aatey hain. Delhi is a place every person would want to
visit, courtesy the cultural and historical significance it carries. I hope
Delhi continues to be one the major attractions of India."
The first look pictures of Peekay hints how far Aamir can go in his quest for perfection. He has appeared in a bright yellow skirt, dark colored lipstick and accessories around his neck. Other pictures show him in full Rajasthani costume and another in a very tight shirt. These pictures do raise a host of intriguing possibilities.
