Aamir Khan on His New Film Peepli Live – Part 2

Aamir KhanYesterday we heard part 1 of my interview with Bollywood’s top movie star Aamir Khan about the new film he’s produced, Peepli Live. The film is directed and written by Anusha Rizwi and tackles the topic of farmer suicides in India. Peepli Live is set in an Indian village named Peepli where a young debt-burdened farmer named Natha is talked into taking his own life after he learns that his family will be financially compensated through a government program created to alleviate the loss of farmers taking their own lives. What unfolds is a dark comedy of errors when a media circus descends on the tiny village, followed by corrupt politicians wanting to make use of the planned tragedy. I spoke with the producer of Peepli Live, Aamir Khan earlier this week. Forty five year old Khan is considered one of India’s biggest film stars. His credits as an actor and producer include Lagaan, the 2001 Oscar nominated film about Indian resistance to the British occupation. His latest film 3 Idiots released last year became the highest grossing film in Indian film history.
