PM to watch ‘Peepli Live’ Sunday
New Delhi, Aug 28, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will watch a special screening Sunday of Bollywood actor and producer Aamir Khan’s much-talked about movie “Peepli Live”.
“He will watch the movie tomorrow,” an official at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) told IANS here Saturday.
The official said Aamir Khan will be present at the 7 Race Course Road residence of the prime minister for the screening.
Senior officials have also been invited for the movie, which deals with the issue of farmers’ suicides in a satirical manner.
Aamir Khan had earlier arranged similar screenings for Bharatiya Janata Party leader L.K. Advani and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray.
The movie that has been directed by Anusha Rizvi and produced by Aamir Khan has done astounding business in India – in its opening week itself – as it earned about Rs.24 crore. The movie was made on a budget of approximately Rs.10 crore.
