New Delhi: Actress Kalki Koechlin says though superstar Aamir Khan was forced by wife Kiran Rao to watch her film 'Margarita with a Straw', he couldn't stop "weeping" when he finally saw it.
Kalki, 31, is over the moon with the praise she got from the 'PK' star.
"Aamir loved the film. He was weeping while watching it. It's surreal to have him sit next to me and say 'Kalki, what can I do to get people watch this movie?' It's excellent. "Kiran watched it first and told him 'You must see this movie' and he said, 'What can be great about this film?' And now he watched and ended up crying," Kalki told reporters here today at the film's screening. The actress said she is excited that the film that won accolades at international film festivals will finally be seen by the Indian audience.
"This is the most important audience for me, back home, to be here after travelling the world and seeing the reaction of our fans, who have made us what we are," she said.
The screening was attended by megastar Amitabh Bachchan along with wife Jaya, film's director Shonali Bose, cast of the movie including Revathi and Sayani, and actor Adil Hussain, who conducted workshops for the movie.
