Bollywood fans have just been informed that Cheat India’s release schedule will be preponed by one week. It is said that the producer would like to avoid being in competition with Abhijit Panse's Thackeray despite the initial intention that both movies will have their premieres on the Republic Day weekend. Actor Aamir Khan shared some thoughts about this matter in a recent interview.

According to Aamir Khan, being released on a special date like the Republic Day is the greatest dream of every producer. Nonetheless, “no one will want to compete with it as Balasaheb was the biggest star of Maharashtra," stated he.

Thackeray is a biographical film written and directed by the famous Abhijit Panse. It depicts the life of Bal Thackeray, the founder of political party Shiv Sena. The male lead filled by the popular actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui also attracts huge attention.

About Aamir Khan’s current project, he has been preparing for the launch of a special website on child obesity. The website has been built by well-known bariatric surgeon Dr Sanjay Borude and supported by the Maharashtra government.

Sharing his reason for the website establishment, Aamir said that he already had experience of gaining weight for his character in Dangal movie. During that time, he had to suffer from obesity. Therefore, he absolutely comprehended the risk and discomfort this corpulence causes. Also, each person is suitable for a particular type of diet. Consequently, he decided to develop a website to help with the issue.

Strangely, according to Aamir, India has malnourished kids and obese children due to a lack of proper knowledge about it. “This website will help them to manage weight,” he stated. Thanks to the website, not only can children control themselves, but their parents also have a way to follow how many nutrients they are consuming.

Besides, Aamir Khan also spent much time caring for Paani Foundation, a non-profit company in which he is taking part to fight drought in rural Maharashtra.
