Aamir skips son cricket match for his TV show

Mumbai: Aamir Khan today skipped a special cricket match organised by his son Junaid, possibly due to some urgent work related to his most-awaited TV show `Satyameva Jayate`.

Junaid had organised a fund-raiser Twenty20 celebrity cricket match that was played today at Brabourne Stadium between Bollywood stars and physically-challenged individuals.

Junaid and his college (HR college) club had put up this match together. The match was aimed at sending a message that disability was no handicap. "I had asked dad when he would be free for this match and he gave me May 1 date. But he got some work and hence could not make it here…it`s ok," Junaid told PTI.

A star-studded team from Bollywood had Aamir`s close friend Salman Khan and his brothers- Arbaaz and Sohail, Rani Mukherjee, Esha Kopikkar, Aftab Agnihotri, Prateik Babbar, Atul Kulkarni, TV actors Dilip Joshi and Disha Vakani. "Aamir has a show coming up…," an ecstatic Salman said hinting that due to Aamir`s busy schedule, he could not make it for the match. The show `Satyameva Jayate` will go on air from May 6.
