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.
