Aamir’s policy is the most sought out one in the Bollywood industry and he makes sure to get enormous appreciations for his every creation. This time it is ‘Peepli Live’ in the queue. A media event took place to launch the first two promotional videos for Aamir’s forthcoming production, ‘Peepli Live’. Earlier this year, Aamir has already won some encouraging responses at the Sundance Festival.
The movie is written and directed by filmmaker Anusha Rizvi and was believed to showcase the suicide story of the farmers. But Aamir confirms that it is not such a story and it is a humorous satire on the Indian urban and rural divide. Ready For Release On August 13.
He adds, “It is a satire on the widening gap between rural and urban India. I’ve been telling the media that it doesn’t address the topic of farmer suicides but you just don’t believe me.” Another 10 promos will be soon launched and the presently launched promos contain ample humor with Raghubir and Rajpal’s Yadav in the lead roles. However, there are instances in the movie which shows that the farmer (Rajpal) threatens the government to commit suicide, claiming compensation to run his family. The related scenes are extremely humorous and touching.
