Aamir Khan hosted a special screening of Dhobi Ghat for dhobis. The film also is without an interval
The first print of Kiran Rao’s Dhobi Ghat was brought out two days ago. And guess who got to watch it first? Not B-Town biggies but a lot of dhobis who actually work at the dhobi ghat in this city.
Aamir Khan held a special screening of the film for the people, whose lives are the core of the film. 55 dhobis including the President and Vice President of Dhobi association watched the film at the Ketnav preview theatre last weekend.
Says a source close to Aamir, “The dhobi association was very helpful during the shoot of the film. Pratik, who plays a dhobi in the film, was made to interact with dhobis to understand his character well.
During the shoot, some dhobis had requested Kiran to show them the film and Aamir fulfilled their wish. Aamir was present at the screening and he met each one of them and had lunch with them.”
