Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is considered one of the finest actors in India. It is due to his insane amount of doing things the perfect way, that has been seen give him a tag of ‘Perfectionist’ too by his peers and fans. All his movies always seem to blend among the youth and his film the 3 Idiots, still is the favorite among the young generation.
The film was released way back in 2009, and during the promotion of the film, Aamir wanted to play a prank on Sourav Ganguly. The Mr. Perfectionist disguised himself as a fan sporting a black T-shirt and jeans but was not satisfied it seems. He went a step ahead and also wore a wig and spectacles and tried to enter Ganguly’s house, but the plan instead backfired.
Aamir also tried to show off his Bengali speaking skills with an accent while asking the address of the cricketer’s house, but his efforts seem to bore no fruit. He was sent back by security guards of Ganguly, who said the cricketer was unavailable and won’t return soon. But Aamir managed to trick the people on the streets of Kolkata as no one recognized the actor and also the guards.
But the actor’s main plan to successfully play out a prank on Ganguly failed big time. The video of the same too was shared and the fans could not believe how Aamir was denied entry into Ganguly’s house.
Sourav Ganguly’s T-shirt waving celebration turns 19
While the BCCI president Ganguly is remembered for his leadership skills, his elegant batting, and for being a role model to the youngsters, he will undoubtedly forever be remembered for his T-shirt-waving celebration at the Lord’s balcony in the year 2002. During that epic final against England, India was reeling in a steep run-chase of 326.
But Mohammad Kaif and Yuvraj Singh ensured India got over the line and allow Ganguly to wave his T-shirt, in response to Andrew Flintoff’s wild celebration at the Wankhede Stadium. The then skipper of the team achieved a historic win and showed to the world that India can indeed chase steep targets, that too away from home and ace it too.
