Staff member
Often picked on for his over involvement in the projects related to him, Aamir Khan will now step aside to let wife Kiran Rao get her share of the limelight.

From what we hear, Aamir will give a miss to the first look launch of Kiran’s directorial debut Dhobi Ghat that has Aamir playing a painter. The reason being that Aamir doesn’t want to steal the limelight from wife Kiran, as he knows that the media will focus more on him if he’s present at the event.

The first look will be launched on November 17.

“He wants everyone to know this is a Kiran Rao film. So when the glimpses of the film will be shown on November 17, Aamir would not be there,” a source is quoted to have said.

Dhobi Ghat also stars Prateik Babbar. The film was shot in complete secrecy and not even the press came to know that Aamir was the lead actor until the film was fully shot.

The film will release in the third week of January.
