Celebrities like ranbir Kapoor, Rani Mukerji, Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif were among those who attended a special screening of Ship Of Theseus, organised by Aamir Khan in Mumbai.

Among others who were seen at the event were Parineeti Chopra, Kunal Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Ashutosh Gowariker, Rajkumar Yadav, Aditi Rao Hydari and Kunal Kohli.

“It was a very wonderful film, very powerful. I don’t think any other film has moved me so much as Ship Of Theseus,” Ranbir said after the screening.

“This is a film that kind of shakes you from the soul. The film has been made so realistically that I just don’t have words ... people have to watch the film to see how it can shake you up,” filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani said.

“Now it feels that the kind of cinema that we have been making so far is so inconsequential and small,” added Hirani.

Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao is presenting Ship Of Theseus, directed by Anand Gandhi.

“Kiran saw this film earlier. She loved it and asked me to see the film. When I saw it, I loved it too. We thought we should promote these kinds of films, so we invited all our friends from the industry for this screening,” Aamir told reporters.

Aamir had also invited Salman Khan for the screening. But he couldn’t make it in time as he was busy shooting in Hyderabad, and his flight back to Mumbai was delayed.

However, Aamir said that Salman had promised to make it to the party, which was organised at the former’s residence.

Ship Of Theseus is a story about human values, and its narrative surrounds three characters - an experimental photographer, an ailing monk and a stock broker.
