It's family first for Aamir.

Even with the biggest releases lined up, Aamir 'The Perfectionist' Khan has his family as priority.

The actor was supposed to fly to Chicago for the shooting of his film Dhoom 3, but when he was informed that Raksha Bandhan was on the day before his sister Nikhat's 50th birthday, Aamir decided to combine the occasions' happiness and gift his sibling by being present for her big day.

'Aamir's sister is celebrating her 50th birthday on August 3 but the actor was scheduled to leave for Chicago on the same night with the entire team. He was planning to celebrate Rakhi which falls on the previous day. However, the entire family planned to have a lavish party in the night,” says Aamir's spokesperson informed.

The actor has his kitty full. While his TV show Satyameva Jayate is starting some kind of a social revolution, his next movie 'Talaash' will his screens in a couple of months. Dhoom 3 is one of YRF's biggest projects and Aamir plays the antagonist in it.

However, none of this hampered Aamir's concern about being with his family on the important day that they all have planned to meet.

When he heard about the party, he requested Victor (Vijay Krishna Acharya, director) and Aditya Chopra if he would be allowed to leave a day late. Of course, he didn't want to disrupt shooting or upset any schedule. Victor and Aditya were more than accommodating and felt Aamir could join the shoot on August 6. Aamir will now leave on the night of August 4 and attend the family reunion,” adds the spokesperson.

Way to go, Aamir!
