While nephew Imran Khan will appear as a guest of Farah Khan's yet-to-air chat show, Tere Mere Beech Mein, maama Aamir Khan has refused to be part of it. While this is bound to spark off speculation that Aamir has refused the show because of Farah's closeness to SRK, or the fact that Shahrukh's Red Chillies Productions are the line producers of the show, truth is that AK begged off as he is busy with his two releases (Dhobi Ghaat and 3 Idiots) this year.
A source from the show says, "Aamir cited date problems as the reason for not doing the show. He also claimed that he wasn't aware about the format of the show and he wasn't comfortable doing something a show, whose tone and flavour he was not acquainted with." Aamir never even appeared on Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan either.
Almost all A-List actors of B-Town have already shot for the episode Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan will join that list shortly. Even Salman, who is as allergic to chat shows, shot for the show with his mum Salma, so Farah was taken aback when Aamir excused himself. She half-expected him to say yes because she started her career as a choreographer with his film Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. But when she called the Ghajini actor, he said, 'I am sorry but I will pass.' Farah then told him, 'I was expecting you to say no but I still had to try.'
Farah confirms, "I was very keen to have Aamir on my show but he was unavailable. He was very polite about declining." She hastens to add, "Tere Mere Beech Mein, which airs in August, isn't just another celebrity talk show. It is based on a specific topic every week. Two guest celebrities and a common man will be interviewed in each episode." The show is being produced by Farah and her husband Shirish Kunder under their banner 3's Company.
