The drummer of the Indian Ocean band, Amit Kilam while performing their two songs asked Aamir to join them and play drums.
“I am bored of playing drums and I want someone to play drums for us — I want Aamir Khan to come and play the drums,” Amit said. When Aamir came on stage, wife Kiran Rao was amused to see the 44-year-old star beat the drums. She clapped, swayed, and jumped around on the beats of the drum.
“It was my childhood dream to perform alongside one of those long-haired rockstars and play some instrument. I finally got an opportunity. I thank Indian Ocean for fulfilling my childhood fantasy,” Aamir said.
The music launch of the film saw some B-town biggies including Karan Johar, Ashutosh Gowariker, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Prasoon Joshi, Rajkumar Hirani, Rani Mukherji, Atul Kulkarni and Ronnie Screwvala.
