Big names from Bollywood - Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Abhishek Bachchan and Jacqueline Fernandez were spotted at the event which took place in Mumbai on Sunday night. If reports are to be believed, the contributors will get a chance to get a ride in Imran Khan’s Ferrari or have a work-out date at his gym or even join Aamir Khan on the set of P.K for one day. Dabangg star was spotted interacting with Aamir Khan’s son Azaad at the charity event. Below are some of the first pictures from the football match organised by Aamir Khan’s Daughter Ira Khan in Mumbai.
Ira was earlier quoted by a daily, “Yes, my father is playing. He doesn’t play (football) very often, so I don’t know (how well he plays). We will see in the match.” She added, “There’s a lot of work, so it’s exciting as well as stressful.” What more, we hear that those donating towards charity stand a chance to spend time with the actors. Ira said, “You can (get a chance to) go for a ride in Imran (Khan) bhai’s Ferrari, or work out in his gym. Or you can spend a day with my dad on the sets of P.K..”
Earlier, in a rare and first-ever video interview (Click here to watch the interview), Aamir along with his daughter Ira Khan spoke to Bollywood Hungama about the eagerly awaited football match. The wonderful banter between the father-daughter duo has to be seen to be believed. "I just hope that she remains happy and healthy all her life and contributes positively to people's lives and mine," Aamir said. Ira has successfully managed to convince a lot of big Bollywood stars like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Abhishek Bachchan, Tiger Shroff, Nargis Fakhri etc to be a part of this football match. "Salman is coming?," Aamir exclaimed. "He's not playing but he's gonna come for a bit. He can't stay the whole time," Ira said. "We'll get him to play if he's coming," Aamir chipped in.
Ira shared some interesting information about the fundraising efforts for TIGI Foundation's Animal Shelter. If a fan donates a certain amount of money then he/she gets to spend some time with Aamir on the sets of P.K. or a cooking lesson with Kiran or a ride in Imran Khan's Ferrari. "At 20 km an hour, no speeding," Aamir said with a chuckle
The 16-year-old Ira Khan recently passed her 2014 ICSE examinations with a score of 89%. Word is, that she is quite the avid footballer herself and organizes a football match with family members every year on her birthday. So it is not altogether surprising that she chose this medium to help support her animal welfare cause.
This is not the first time one of Aamir’s children has organised a sports event to help support a social cause. A few years ago, Ira’s brother Junaid had organised a cricket match between celebrities for the underprivileged people in Maharashtra. Aamir’s co-star from Andaaz Apna Apna, Salman Khan was part of this event.
