Aamir Khan is such a big name in India that he could not go in and out of the house that the shoot was taking place in without arousing huge public interest. So he and his wife Kiran Rao, who is also the director, actually stayed in the same house for the entire duration of the shoot. See more »
Beautifully intricate direction of the most intelligent tribute to Muslim mumbai.
The film is a blessing. It truly focuses how muslims run this city right from washing clothes to the artistic beauties. It also shows the plight of Muslim women who come to mumbai and learn about the dirty things like adultery.
Aamir mia tumhara to jawab nahi. Superb acting. Also, Kiran Rao has done a really great work here. I was left wanting for more. The whole was just so touching as it is close to the heart.
I hope you make more such movies, keeping in focus the Muslim community.
