On the promo trail

DRAPED IN A black and gold, hand-woven Chanderi sari gifted by her co-star Aamir Khan, Kareena took to the stage along with four weavers, at a press conference organised to promote 3 Idiots.

The weavers should be provided a proper platform so that they get due respect and wages for the labour they put in weaving a sari,” Kareena said.

One of the weavers present on the occasion, Hukum Kol, also had the opportunity to host Aamir and Kareena at his home.

Kareena said she and Aamir had tried their hands at a loom and also learnt to design the famous sari at Hukum’s house near Pranpur (Chanderi) in Madhya Pradesh. They also enjoyed a puri and a curry of gourd at his house.

Aamir also gifted Hukum a gold ring and invited the weavers to attend the premiere of 3 Idiots. Hukum in turn said he would weave the names of the actors on the sari they had worked on.

Referring to her role in 3 Idiots, she said, “It was a dream come true for me to work with Aamir in the film. He is one of the best actors in the film industry.”

Asked to compare all the Khans(Aamir, Saif, Salman and Shah Rukh), Kareena said, “Like in the sky there are many stars in the film industry and it would be unfair to compare them.”
