Aamir Khan's latest movie 'The Rising' is beginning on a very prestigious note indeed. The producers of the movie have convinced none other than Prince Charles to snap the clapperboard and mark the shooting of the big budget drama. The British royal will take part during his none-day visit to India. 'The Rising' also stars Aishwarya Rai and Hollywood's Toby Stephens (Die Another Day). It is based on an 1857 uprising when Hindu and Muslim soldiers revolted in the belief the cartridges they had to bite before loading into their guns were greased with the fat of cows and pigs, forbidden by their religions. The uprising, which the British called a mutiny and the Indians their first war of independence, led to Britain taking over most of the country from the British East India Company.
