Akshaye, Aamir patch up their friendship

Aamir Khan is hosting a grand premiere of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na to launch his nephew Imran Khan. Touted to be one of the biggest events, Aamir has invited over 700 people from the film industry. According our source Aamir has extended an invitation to his one-time archrival Ram Gopal Varma.

Our source says, "Aamir is calling up people and inviting them personally. He called up even Ram Gopal Varma, with whom he had major issues during the making of Rangeela, and invited him for the premiere. Ramu has also reciprocated Aamir's gesture and accepted the invitation."

Glossing over creative differences between Ramu and Aamir during the making of Rangeela our source adds, "Following the release and success of the film, both of them had lashed out against each other in print. Ramu had accused Aamir of 'interfering' in the film and that had apparently not gone too well with the actor."

We contacted Ramu by texting him if he will be attending the premiere, he merely said "yes" but chose not to reveal anything further.

Another long-lost friend that Aamir has patched up with is Akshaye Khanna. Apparently, it's Akshaye who took the initiative to revive the friendship. Aamir and Akshaye who had bonded big time during the making of Farhan Akhtar's Dil Chahta Hai had drifted apart and were not on talking terms.

But what was the bone of contention? Says a source, "After Dil Chahta Hai released, Aamir and Akshaye remained in constant touch. In fact, for Taare Zameen Par, Amole Gupte and Aamir selected Akshaye to play the lead.

However, after Aamir parted ways with Amole owing to creative differences, he decided to step into Akshaye's shoes, which upset him.

However, recently, when Akshaye saw Taare Zameen Par, he was so moved by Aamir's performance that he messaged him saying that perhaps he could not have done as much justice to the role as Aamir had. Aamir in turn, thanked Akshaye and the two broke the ice once again."

And well, Akshaye was also personally invited by Aamir to his film's premiere.

That's our boy! Not a single mean bone in him. I am talking to you, Emraan Hashmi.

I didn't know that Aamir and Akshaye had problems post Dil Chahta Hai. I'm really surprised. Thank God, they have patch up their friendship. My wish is that Akshoo works with Aamir again someday after Dil Chahta Hai.

I don't think they had problems. They just sorta drifted away. But press will magnify anything. Zee news is even referring to them as "former foes"!

The media is just impossible. The press just writes without confirm the issue with Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna!
