Aamir Khan skips, Amitabh unveils Phalke statue !
Earlier we reported that Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who is known to shun all award ceremonies finally agreed to attend the Dadasaheb Phalke Awards. Aamir Khan is supposed to have conveyed the organizers that he would be there only for the unveiling part of Dadasaheb wax statue and that would not be more than half- an- hour.
However, at the last moment the organizers were left fuming as Aamir Khan’s office informed the organizers that some last minute dubbing was needed from Aamir Khan for his upcoming television show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ and that he would not be coming to the event at all. Instead of Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, the Shahenshah of bollywood unveiled the statue.
A source said, “Aamir was supposed to arrive at the event, but at the last moment he chose to cancel it. It put the organisers in a big fix. They then had to approach Amitabh at the last moment, and he was gracious enough to agree and do the unveiling.”
The organizers confirmed the news and said, “Yes, Aamir was supposed to come, but he backed out at the last moment. We have his mails confirming his attendance at the event. But at the last minute he informed that he won’t be able to make it. He told us that he has some last minute dubbing to do because of which he could not come.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson at Aamir’s office said, “No Aamir did not confirm his presence at the event. So there’s no question of him skipping the event.”
