Farah Khan reveals why Aamir Khan skipped the shoot citing the ‘funniest’ reason

Speaking on Maniesh Paul’s podcast, the Om Shanti Om director revealed the reason Aamir Khan decided to skip the song. She shared, “We called a lot of stars who eventually did not come. Amit ji could not come. Abhishek and Aishwarya were getting married that week, so he couldn’t come. Aamir’s was the funniest, he kept me hanging and in the end, he gave me the reason that he was editing Taare Zameen Par. I said, ‘Just come, I will get it done in two hours.”

She further continues, “Then he called me and said, ‘Farah I am editing, if I leave the editing for two hours and come for the shoot, my film will be delayed for six months.’ Later when I asked him about this reason, he said, ‘I did not want to come’”.
