Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who is a filmmaker himself, cannot get over the Marathi film Natsamrat. The actor tweeted his praise for his seniors Nana Patekar and Vikram Gokhale, who star in the film in the lead. Nana Patekar and Natsamrat were earlier praised by the legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan as well. Nana and Vikram are both stalwarts and Aamir did not miss a chance to show how much he respected their act in Natsamrat.Also Read - Netizens Ask Aamir Khan’s Daughter Ira Khan ‘Which Cigarette Do U Smoke?’ on Her Latest Photo

Aamir also praised director Mahesh Manjrekar, apart from Nana and Vikram. He said, “Thank you Mahesh, Nana, Vikramji, and to the entire team. (3/3).”
Natsamrat from the movie’s trailer had actually reminded us of The Last Lear starring Amitabh Bachchan that has him playing a similar character – a theatre artiste who has lost his charm. Also, the Hollywood film Birdman in a few ways. But Natsamrat is something else! The film shows the tragic life of a veteran theatre actor, Ganpat Appa Belwalkar, played by Nana Patekar.
Aamir Khan’s sudden interest in Marathi culture can be attributed to a special announcement being made today regarding his involvement with a campaign for the Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra government. The actor has also recently danced to a Marathi song at the Magnetic Maharashtra event in Mumbai and dined with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut at the Make In India event in the state capital.
