Aamir Khan fans. The Perfectionist Khan, who has always stayed away from the award functions, has finally given a nod to attend the upcoming Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Awards, that will be presented on May 3.
The annual event at Juhu’s Hotel Tulip Star will honour some of the Bollywood’s biggest names. One of the organisers informed a leading daily that Aamir would unveil a wax statue of Dadasaheb Phalke and would be present at the function only for half an hour. The organiser further stated that Aamir had made it clear that he would attend the award function, only to unveil the statue since they are celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema.
For the last 17 years, Aamir had never attended any of the award functions. Khan feels that "Indian film awards lack credibility". Even when he was invited to have a wax imitation of himself, which was put on display at Madame Tussauds in London, he declined stating that, "It's not important to me... people will see my films if they want to. Also, I cannot deal with so many things, I have bandwidth only for that much.”
