Reality TV shows are the latest platform for Bollywood stars to go and promote their upcoming films. Be it The Kapil Sharma Show or Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss, almost all actors ensure to get their films promoted on the sets of these popular shows.
Even superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan ensured to be a part of these shows to promote their Dear Zindagi and Sultan. But then, the perfectionist Aamir Khan is different. Even with his stardom, he is an introvert at heart, who always chooses to stay away from paparazzi and has thus, never appeared on shows like Bigg Boss, Jhalak or any of the other dance and music reality shows.
There were speculations that Aamir Khan would be promoting Dangal at The Kapil Sharma Show. But, he clearly denied to them and it wasn’t surprising because he is well-known for being a perfectionist at work. He focuses on doing quality films rather than unnecessary promotions on these kinds of shows.
So when people heard that Aamir Khan will not be promoting Dangal on The Kapil Sharma Show, it didn’t surprise them.
Why has he never been on the show?
Well, the reason is quite naïve – because there was no need for it. Kapil’s comedy show Comedy Nights with Kapil started in June 2013 and now his The Kapil Sharma Show has been running from April 2016 till date. During this time, Aamir did just 2 films – Dhoom 3, a Dhoom franchise that needed no marketing, in 2013 and then Raju Hirani’s PK in 2014, which again needed no marketing as Hirani’s movies are loved for their content.
And this time, it’s about Dangal, a Nitesh Tiwari direction under the banner of Aamir Khan Productions and Walt Disney. Does it need to be at The Kapil Sharma Show for any promotion? No need I guess, especially after this engaging trailer!
And then, it’s not only about The Kapil Sharma Show, Khan is not going to Bigg Boss 10 house as well. He is not going to do any promotions on TV. However, Dangal’s promo and songs will be telecasted on TV.
With powerful, thought-provoking stories presented in a way that it engages millions of hearts, Aamir Khan movies need no promotions. PK, without much promotion, became the highest grossing movie.
Aamir says, “Good films don’t need promotion”.
Dangal is also expected to be a good one. The movie is an extraordinary true story based on the life of Mahavir Singh and his two daughters, Geeta and Babita Phogat. This film projects the inspirational journey of a father, who trains his daughters to grow up into world-class wrestlers.
Other than the perfectionist, Aamir Khan, we have Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Zaira Wasim and Suhani Bhatnagar in the star cast.
Book your Show for Dangal, which is going to be released tomorrow, on December 23, 2016!
