- Arjun Mathur worked on two of Aamir Khan's films
- There's just so much I've gotten to imbibe from this man: Arjun
- Arjun Mathur says he's "forever grateful"
Actor Arjun Mathur, who plays the lead role in Made In Heaven along with Sobhita Dhulipala, worked as assistant director on Rang De! Basanti, starring Aamir Khan. Arjun shared a throwback picture from the sets recounting all that he learned from Aamir Khan, who in turn re-posted Arjun's picture and captioned it: "Hey Arjun, so wonderful to see you doing such great work. I really enjoyed Made In Heaven. Love, a." In his post, Arjun wrote about Aamir: "(It was) a grand privilege to have gotten to observe the genius and work-ethic of Aamir Khan... even before I had started acting professionally. There's just so much I've gotten to imbibe from this man... and in case you can't tell from my longing gaze, I'm forever grateful for it."
Rang De! Basanti, directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, was Arjun Mathur's fourth and also his last film as an assistant director. He also worked on Kyun! Ho Gaya Na, Mangal Pandey: The Rising and Bunty Aur Babli.
Here are Aamir Khan and Arjun Mathur's posts:
Hey Arjun, so wonderful to see you doing such great work. I really enjoyed Made in Heaven. Love, a. #Repost @arjun__mathur Major #throwback - the year 2005. Standing-in on mark for the 'present day D.J.' next to #ChandrashekharAzad for one of the past/present #VFX transition shots required for the #climax in #RangDeBasanti. #RDB was my fourth and last film as an #AssistantDirector (and the end of utility jackets for me). What an honour to have been a part of this #rebellion, this #movement. Yes, it was much more than a film. And what a grand privilege to have gotten to observe the genius and work-ethic of @_aamirkhan on not one, but two entire feature-films, even before I had started acting professionally. There's just so much I've gotten to imbibe from this man.. and in case you can't tell from my longing gaze, I'm forever #grateful for it. #Memories #MovieMagic #Journey #PartOfThePlan #AamirKhan
