Aamir turns drummer to promote 'Peepli Live'Jul 14, 2010 IANS
Mumbai, July 13 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan broke into an impromptu gig with the Indian Ocean band here and took charge of the drums at the music launch of his forthcoming production "Peepli Live" Tuesday.
"Since childhood I wanted to perform on stage with a band and finally I got an opportunity. It's a dream come true thanks to Indian Ocean," said Aamir, after a thumping performance of the song "Des mera rangrez" from the movie.
The number has been composed by the band, who invited the actor on stage before kicking off the show.
Known for his promotional gimmicks, Aamir recently also took digs at himself by launching a series of promos of the movie.
Directed by debutant Anusha Rizvi, "Peepli Live" is a satire on society. It revolves around two impoverished farmers Natha (Omkar Das Manikpuri) and Budhia (Raghubir Yadav) who live in a village called Peepli. They are about to lose their land due to debt.
An incompetent politician suggests they commit suicide to get government help. The news spreads and the media turns Natha into a celebrity.
This is the fourth film from Aamir Khan Productions Ltd after "Lagaan: Once Upon A Time In India" (2001), "Taare Zameen Par"(2007) and "Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na"(2008).
