When Aamir Khan was thrown out of Sourav Ganguly’s house by his guards
Cricket and Bollywood have always shared a mutual love for each other. We have seen several actresses falling for the handsome cricketers and vis a vis. But apart from that we also have superstars who share a great bond with some of these sportsmen. Superstar Aamir Khan and former cricketer Sourav Ganguly share a similar bond.
Interestingly, we stumbled upon a major throwback video in which Aamir Khan was denied entry into Ganguly’s house by his guard. Wondering why? Well, it was a prank that Aamir played while promoting his film 3 Idiots. Read on to what transpired.
Aamir Khan is known for his intelligence and his unique ways to promote his films. Back in 2009, while promoting 3 Idiots, Aamir disguised himself and visited Ganguly’s house in Kolkatta. The actor told the guards that he is a huge fan of the cricketer and just want to meet him once. However Aamir was mistaken for just another fan, and the guards didn’t allow him to meet the cricketer. A bespectacled Aamir with an unkempt look is unrecognizable in his disguise. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that no one was able to see through his prank.
You can watch a glimpse of his prank below:
In another video we see, Aamir and his then-wife Kiran Rao having a meal with the Gangulys when the cricketer shares the story of the actor’s prank with his family. Everyone has a hearty laugh over the dinner. The superstar later gifts a ring to the cricketer as a token of his admiration and friendship and tells him that the ring will remind him of their friendship.
Ganguly laughs and says he can remember Aamir without the ring as well. You can check out their sweet interaction below:
Aamir later heaps praises on the cricketer and reveals that his down-to-earth nature makes him one of the most loved sportsmen. This whole skit was evidently a part of the promotion of Aamir’s 3 Idiots which went on to become a huge hit.
