Aamir Khan, who is spending time with wife Kiran Rao after her miscarriage last month, says his much-awaited 3 Idiots will hit the screens in December.
“Vinod (Vidhu Vinod Chopra) and Raju (Raj Kumar Hirani) told me that the post-production on 3 Idiots is progressing well — so by the time I get back, the cut (final product) will be ready. This means I can confirm to all those of you who have been repeatedly asking... yes, 3 Idiots will be releasing on Christmas this year. I’ll see the cut once I get back,” he wrote on his blog www.aamirkhan.com/blog/.
He didn’t reveal his whereabouts, but informed: “Kiran and I are away from home, in one very quiet spot, just lying in and resting. Reading, going for walks, watching films.”
The actor says he is utilising his time to catch up on a few films and books — something that he hasn’t been able to do thanks to his chock-a-block schedules.
“There are so many films to see, and books to read. One life time is not enough. Books, I read, but films I never get down to seeing.
“Strange, since, I love cinema so much. It’s not as if I don’t enjoying watching films. I really do, in fact when I watch a film I forget to blink and my eyes start hurting after a while. But for someone who is so steeped in films I have watched pathetically few films in all these years,” he said.
Aamir is glad that he has finally managed to watch 1994 American film The Shawshank Redemption, which was recommended to him by many.
“Just saw The Shawshank Redemption. Had heard so much about this film. It seems to be on a lot of must-see lists. Really enjoyed it,” he added.
