Aamir turns 'Banarasi Babu'

Aamir turns 'Banarasi Babu'


The 44-year-old actor has put on a disappearing act and is on a seven city tour to promote the film. Aamir reached Varanasi on Friday and travelled through the narrow lanes of the old city to search his mother, Zeenat’s birth place in Teliyanala area, near the Prahlad Ghat on the banks of river Ganga.

Wearing a simple shirt, his face covered with a muffler, Aamir hid himself in old sunglasses. He stayed in the city for three days in the disguise of an old man. The morning before leaving the city, Aamir reached the Teliyanala mohalla in the Kotwali area to visit his mother’s birthplace Khwaja Manzil, which is in a dilapidated condition.

“Aamir got really emotional when he found the birth place of his mother,” the rickshaw-puller Ramlakhan Paswan, who drove the actor through the bylanes of the city, said. “When Aamir reached his mother’s birth place he was chewing paan and his mouth was full of it. He was sporting a white beard so no one could identify him,” Paswan said. “He suddenly revealed his identity and asked the people in Bhojpuri, ‘Ka Guru ee Banaras hau, Aamir Khan ke na pahachan pailen’(Don’t you recognise Aamir Khan).” he added. Aamir also visited the famous Dasaswamedh Ghat.

After leaving Varanasi, the actor is headed to his second destination and clue for it is: “Andheri Kaali Raat mein aaunga main, Khooni Darwaja Khatkhataunga main, Aap mujh tak pahunche na par koi baat nahin, Kahin par apni chhap chhod jaunga main.”
