aamir-khan (258x450)Aamir Khan is cutting his London trip short as he’s promised to celebrate his 51st birthday with his mum in India.

Currently Khan is shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’, where he plays the role of Mahavir Phogat who encourages his daughters Geeta and Babita to take up wrestling.

He’s already shot for the film in his beefed-up physique as a grown up Mahavir Singh Phogat, but for the younger version of the character Aamir will be loosing around 70 lbs in weight.

Aamir’s trip had played a dual purpose of preparation for the film whilst spending some quality time with his 21-year-old son Junaid (from Aamir’s first wife Reena Dutta) who is studying film-making in England.

A source said: “He was supposed to be there till the end of the month but will have to cut short his trip and return in six days.

“His mother (Zeenat Hussain) is in her 80s now and wants Aamir who turns 51 on 14th March by her side on his birthday.”

So, as promised, Aamir will fly back to India in time to ring in his 51st birthday with mummy.
