Aamir's 'Peepli Live' at Sundance film fest

Amir Khan

"Peepli Live" is Anusha Rizvi's directorial debut and stars mostly first-timers.
"I am so happy and proud of my writer-director Anusha Rizvi. 'Peepli Live' has been selected at the Sundance Film Festival in the competition section..If I'm not mistaken, it is the first Indian feature film to make it to the competition section there," Aamir posted on his blog www.aamirkhan.com/blog on Friday.

Aamir clarifies that the film is not about farmer suicides.
"Incidentally, this is the same film that a section of the media has been erroneously reporting as being about farmer suicides. Itís not about farmer suicides. It has also been reported that the film is called 'Falling'. Both errors," he wrote.

‘Peepli Live', is a satire, a black comedy about rural life in India. Except for Raghuvir Yadav, most of the actors are facing the camera for the first time, so a predominantly new cast, many of them of Adivasi origin from Madhya Pradesh."
"And what performances! I have been acting for 20 years and there was so much that I learnt from watching them, the 44-year-old explained.

The actor says that he is looking forward to see audiences' reaction to the film.
I havenít spoken about the film before as I like to be sure about how a  film has turned out before I speak about it. I am rather happy with the way the film has turned out. I am looking forward to see what kind of response it gets at Sundance. Fingers crossed,he wrote.
