Aamir Khan couldn’t be prouder for wife Kiran Rao. Kiran Rao’s directorial debut Dhobi Ghat received a warm welcome at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Friday (10th September, 2010). Prateik Babbar’s role is said to have received a huge round of applause. Set in Mumbai, the film stars Prateik Babbar, Aamir Khan, Monica Dogra and Kriti Malhotra.

The cast and crew looked dashing at TIFF: the men in bandhgala-jacket suits and the women in sleek western outfits.

Aamir thanked everyone for appreciating the film on his blog, “We are all most relieved that people seem to be liking the film…such a wonderful review. Worth it doing the film just for that one response.” Aamir is now off to London for the screening of his production Peepli Live.

If you’re waiting to see Aamir as a brooding painter and the Prateik as the washerman, you’ll just have to wait. Kiran Rao’s Dhobi Ghat will release in India in February 2011.
