Today is ex Indian cricket Captain Sourav Ganguly 45th birthday and everyone is celebrating this day with full of LOVE. Ganguly has crores of fans all over the country. Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is also one of them. Once upon a time, Amir reached his home in Kolkata, to meet the star cricketer but got thrown out of the house by security guard?
This happened in 2009, when Aamir was promoting his film ‘3 Idiots’ with different lo0oks. So when landed to Kolkata to meet Sourav Ganguly, obviously the guards stopped him, because he was unrecognizable. Sporting a black shirt, moppy hair and tattoos on his body, a scruffy-looking Aamir Khan was ignored by passer-bys as he asked his way to Ganguly’s residence in South Kolkata.
The 44-year-old actor managed to fool Ganguly’s security men, who refused to let him enter the premises, but Aamir kept pestering them, saying, “Dada ghar pe hain? Mere ko dada se milna hai, photo khichana hai. (Is Dada at home? I want to meet him and get a photo clicked with him).”
Later in the day, Aamir dropped his disguise and finally was welcomed by the cricketer to his house. Aamir joined his family for dinner along with wife Kiran Rao, who is a huge fan of Ganguly.
The couple was welcomed by Ganguly’s wife Dona, who had just returned from a dance performance, his mother and daughter Sana. Then all the people had eaten Bengali food together.
Ganguly took the star on a guided tour of his living room, where the prized trophies and some priceless pictures are on display. The ‘uninvited’ guests then settled down for dinner with the Ganguly family.
As a parting shot, the special guest gifted a ‘friendship’ ring to Dada, “so that you remember me”. Dada didn’t need a gift to remember the Bollywood star, but accepted the ring as a token of friendship.
Aamir is travelling incognito across the country for two weeks in as part of a promotional strategy for his forthcoming film 3 Idiots. The actor has already visited Varanasi and has also spent time at Pranpur village near Madhya Pradesh’s Chanderi town, where Kareena Kapoor had given a clue that Khan would be moving to ‘Dada Ke Desh’.
