A few minutes back, I blogged about one of my favorite obscure songs, Ye Akkha India Jaanta Hai. Leaving things at that would have been unfair to my other favorite, Julie Julie. So I went and hunted it down on YouTube, and here it is:
Aamir Khan on why he chose to do Fanaa:
Remember that scene from FANAA when I am badly injured, lost in a blizzard, stumbling along half dead, when I spot a house. I need to survive because I still need to complete my mission. So I go towards the house for shelter and help. I bang on the door in desperation. The door is opened and it is opened by …..!!!… the BLIND girl I fell in love with and then ditched 7 seven years ago!!! Only now she has eyes! And I know that, because that is the last thing I did for her before disappearing from her life! She looks at me and screems my name!!! No way!!!?? How can she recognise me?!!! She was blind when she knew me! She had never seen me! She has eyes now but how is it possible that she has recognised me???!!!!! Is all this really happening? Am I hallucinating? – I am processing all this as I am collapsing and passing out and then – from behind the door a 6 year old boy comes running…!!! So thats the Rehan who she was screeming for!!! Oh GOD… then… thats… probably… my… son!!!!!!!!!!! Swoosh… and I pass out.
Where else will I get a scene like this as an actor? Which kind of film will give me the chance to perform this kind of moment? It certainly cant be a film like RDB. Only a film like FANAA will have in it a moment like this. I love it.
See full article on his blog, it’s quite interesting.
