Mumbai: Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan have started shooting for their upcoming project PeeKay. The entire star cast – Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sharman Joshi and Shushant Singh Rajput are part of the 45 days schedule in Rajasthan.
The movieâ€™s story revolves around a chronic alcoholic whose memory is cleaned away because of an accident. With no recollection of the past and no one to worry about him, his only support remains his bottle of alcohol.
Aamir Khan will now be preparing for his roles in Peekay as well as for the upcoming Dhoom sequel. But the question that arises now is, will Aamir turn a real alcoholic to bring reality in his character?
Bollywood ace, actor-producer Aamir Khan, who worked on alcoholic issue throughout his show “Satyamev Jayathe”, recently lent his support to fight against alcoholism amongst women. He says women should fourth come about admitting their addiction.
“In India the problem is more complex. There are so many modernistic issues involved with drinking that women are afraid to even admit openly that they are drinking. It’s a very difficult thing for them,” the 47 year old said addressing a press conference.
“So, the fact that you (female reporters) have come here, will give them a lot of strength, lot of courage and with media reporting about it, the message that it is a disease will come across. Even if you are a woman and if you are suffering, you need to step out, there is a help available to you” he added.
