Amir Khan: Won’t be a groupie


In a time when actors fell over each other to walk the red carpet at award ceremonies, Aamir Khan chose to stay away from the spotlight. The actor, who has refused to be a part of the ‘crowd’ more often than not, has now refused to be a part of Riteish Deshmukh’s Legends Walk. Aamir has refused to give hand imprints for the project. Interestingly, there is not one, but two projects on the lines of Hollywood Walk Of Fame being made simultaneously. While Riteish Deshmukh is building one, the other has been planned by UTV. And both teams were disappointed when they approached Aamir. When contacted, Aamir’s spokesperson said the actor is currently not available for anything other than his debut television show. “All requests that have been made to Aamir, regarding an event or a project have not even reached him. He is not available for anything but his show,” said the spokesperson. The actor’s good friend Salman Khan too has refused to be a part of the UTV project. Riteish, who had been collecting the hand imprints of the stars in concrete slabs have also signed contracts with the actors. Some of the personalities whose handprints Riteish has already got include Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna, Salim Khan, Javed Akhtar, Shatrughan Sinha, Sadhana, Waheeda Rehman, Vinod Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Asha Bhonsle, Pran, Rishi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Mithun Chakroborty and Dilip Kumar.
