Aamir Khan’s ‘Dhobi Ghat’ nominated for BAFTA

Brand new daddy, Aamir Khan has one more reason to celebrate now. After Dhobi Ghat released, Aamir confessed that he missed a chance to romance wifey Kiran Rao in the movie because she didn’t want to act in it. “She is a better actor than me. I hope we get to see her on Indian screen in a film or a theatre or play. I have told her so many times she is very talented and she must act,” the actor had said at the DVD launch of Dhobi Ghat. But looks like the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) didn’t really mind. The movie made it to BAFTA Awards’ Longlist in Film Not in English Language category. After competing with 285 other movies DG made it to the list of 15 movies that were shortlisted. Aamir is not unfamiliar to his movies making it to nomination lists. Aamir’s Lagaan became the third Hindi-language film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2002, Taare Zameen Par and Peepli:Live became India’s official entry to the Academy Awards. And now Dhobi Ghat. But this time, we do hope that the movie goes a step further and wins the award. Fingers crossed.
