Fatherhood for the third time has turned Aamir Khan into quite a home-bird. He wants to stay as close to wife Kiran and newly-born son Azad as possible. Opting for a departure from his habitual way of working, Aamir has taken wife and son to Chicago to be with him for the 3-month schedule.
And now we hear from a friend of Aamir that the star while shooting for Dhoom 3 has opted to stay in a rented apartment in Chicago with his family rather than a hotel.
Says the close friend of Kiran and Aamir, “Though Yash Raj wanted to hire a suite in one of the best hotels in Chicago for Aamir, Kiran and Azad, Aamir declined the offer. He preferred a rented apartment. In this way, he cut down Yash Raj’s accommodation budget in Chicago for Aamir by nearly 60 percent. But the main reason why Aamir opted to stay in a rented place is the ghar ka mahaul. The homely environment is what turns Aamir on these days.”
Aamir apparently told his friends that nothing gives him greater joy nowadays than to return home to see Kiran and Azad waiting for him.
In fact so inspiring is Aamir’s home-away-from-home system of working in Chicago that we now hear that the film’s other leading man Abhishek Bachchan has invited his entire family to join him in Chicago and stay together in a rented apartment.
Says a source, “Abhishek’s wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya are joining him soon in Chicago. The Big B and Jayaji will follow soon after. They want to get some time together away from the city and prying eyes.”
With two of the principal actors of Dhoom 3 blissfully bonding with their respective families in America, it looks like Dhoom 3 will turn out to be one happy affair.
