Europe is one of the favorite destinations for most Indians (thanks to Yash Chopra & Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – DDLJ – for it). Many dream of going to Europe, travelling by Eurail (train), and visiting the several scenic locations across Europe.
Guess What! Europe is also the favorite destination of film-stars and their families.
So it didn’t come as a surprise to Aamir Khan, when his daughter Ira Khan revealed to him that she wanted to travel Europe along with her friends.
However, like most other parents, even Aamir was uncomfortable that Ira wanted to go alone (she is Aamir’s only daughter). Being a bit possessive about his kids, Aamir was reluctant to give permission to Ira’s travel plans (I am sure every father will understand Aamir’s dilemma).
But then the ‘3 Idiots’ actor realized that Ira is now an adult now, and finally agreed to her travel plans. But only on the condition that Ira will keep Aamir posted about her whereabouts by calling him every four hours to confirm that everything is fine with her.
Ira is naturally overjoyed and looking forward to the Europe tour.
Interestingly, the movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge not only showed Europe in its full glory, there’s also a similar scene in the movie where Kajol tries to convince dad Amrish Puri to give permission to her travel plans to Europe. Remember the famous line by Amrish Puri ‘Ja Simran ja, jee le apni zindagi’?
