Actor Aamir Khan and his ex-wife and filmmaker Kiran Rao on Saturday met Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha at Raj Bhavan in Srinagar and discussed the new film policy of the state which will be rolled out soon.
Sharing a picture on social media from the meeting, Sinha wrote: Met renowned film actors Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao. We discussed the new film policy of J&K, which will be released shortly. The discussion also focused on reviving Jammu and Kashmir’s glory in Bollywood and making it a favorite film shooting destination.
Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao are currently shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha in Ladakh. Recently Naga Chaitanya, son of South superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna joined the cast for his portions in the film. It marks the Telugu actor’s debut in Bollywood.
Recently, Aamir’s production house and the unit of Laal Singh Chaddha were accused of littering in the Wakha region of Ladakh during an outdoor shoot in the region. However, the production house denied allegations of littering and issued a statement saying, to whomsoever it may concern: AKP would like to clarify that as a company we follow strict protocols for cleanliness in and around our shooting spaces.
The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and it is a Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks-starrer Forrest Gump. The comedy-drama film is directed by Advait Chandan from a screenplay written by Eric Roth and Atul Kulkarni.
