Mumbai: It might have been his raging lover’s revengeful act in ‘Ghajini’ that brought him maximum moolah but when it comes to regonition, it’s Aamir’s tender school teacher act in ‘Taare Zameen Par’ that is taking him places. The flick that failed to woo the Oscar jury has become Aamir’s ticket to honour as it has made him a star guest at legendary beauty Audrey Hepburn’s 80th birthday.

The actor has reportedly been asked to grace the diva’s birthday in May in the capacity of a special guest. With a personal invitation coming from Sean Hepburn Ferrer, Audrey’s son, Aamir was much too pleased to give his nod.
In case, you are wondering what connects Aamir to Audrey. Well, it is his perfect work in ‘Taare Zameen Par’. Apparantly, the flick is set for a special screening on the set day and Sean found it only fair to call the actor.

Confirming the news, a daily quoted a source as saying, “Sean Hepburn Ferrer personally called Aamir Khan to invite him for a special screening of his film ‘Taare Zameen Par’ in Berlin on May 3rd to celebrate the 80th birth anniversary of Audrey Hepburn.”

Speaking to a news daily, Sean said, “I find that ‘Taare Zameen Par’ is one of the most beautiful movies ever made about the inner world of a child. I am very happy to announce that his (Aamir’s) movie expresses the same caring spirit towards children that Audrey Hepburn represented and which was so important to her, and therefore ‘Taare Zameen Par’ would be the right choice to celebrate this important occasion.”
