Aamir was keen on acting in 'Delly Belly'

"I was very keen on acting in the movie. I wanted to play the role of Kunal Roy Kapoor... I just loved his character. But he is fat and I would have had to gain a lot of weight for the role.

"I did not want to do that as I know how tough it is to lose weight," Aamir told reporters here after unveiling the theatrical promo of the movie along with director Abhinay Deo.
Talking about the film, the 46-year-old actor said, "there is no skin show in the movie but it is bold and irreverent. It is not meant for kids."

'Delhi Belly' is a comic caper targeted at the young audience. "People who can't identify with disrespectful and unclean language ought to stay away from it. Its an adult film. But it was an amazing script and I just had to produce this film," Aamir added.

The movie has been given an 'A' rating and the promos boldly feature scenes with sexual connotations.

"When we went to the Censors, we approached them for an A-certificate. Censor Board hasn't cut any scenes from the film, and in fact seems to have enjoyed the film themselves," Aamir said.

The film stars Imran Khan, Kunal Roy Kapoor, Poorna Jagannathan, Vir Das, Shenaz Treasurywala in pivotal roles.

The promos of 'Delly Belly' will be played in cinemas alongside Ekta Kapoor's 'Ragini MMS' from this Friday. The film releases on July 1
