Aamir Khan screens 'Peepli [Live]' for Manmohan Singh Aamir Khan
After showing his much appreciated production Peepli [Live] to the MNS chief Raj Thackeray a few days back, superstar Aamir Khan flew to Delhi to screen the movie for Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Sunday evening.

Dr. Singh saw the film at his official residence 7, Race Course Road in New Delhi. Reports say Aamir was accompanied by the film’s director Anusha Rizvi and actors Raghuvir Yadav and Omkar Das Manikpuri at the screening.

Aamir also screened the movie for BJP MPs. The party’s senior leader L K Advani, who had wept while seeing Aamir’s Taare Zameen Par, also watched Peepli [Live] at this special screening.

Though Mr. Advani liked the film and praised it for its realistic depiction of rural life, he wished that the movie’s theme was not farmer’s suicide but NREGA (National Rural Employment Guarantee Act) which guarantees a hundred days of wage employment per year for every adult member of the rural household.

“I wish for the main theme of the story, the filmmakers had chosen some subject other than farmers’ suicide,” Mr. Advani said.

Peepli [Live] tells the story of a poor farmer who is manipulated by his elder brother in deciding to commit suicide to avail a government scheme that pays compensation money to the family of the deceased. With elections around the corner, the media and politicians jump in to extract maximum advantage out of the poor farmer’s plight.
