Exclusive: Aamir Khan Spotted In A Dhobhi Get-Up

Aamir Khan goes dehaati while shooting for an ad for a DTH service provider he endorses. The actor was spotted in a dhoti complete with an oiled-down look and twirling mouche, looking quite like a dhobhi.

Which begs the question: Is his upcoming production, Dhobhi Ghat -- directed by wife Kiran Rao -- tying in with the brand in a cross-promotion?

The shoot took place yesterday afternoon near Napeansea Road. The actor was spotted at Camelot Bungalow between Om Chambers and Shalimar.

This is also his first commercial shoot since returning from his long vacation in Europe.

AK in getups is not a new thing. In fact, the mercurial actor has done a series of commercials through the years -- in soft drink ads (see box) and for the DTH brand, has dressed up in various characters, most famously as an old Sardar and a half-man half-woman.
