And the disease they are suffering from is called H1N1 or swine flu he said in a video message.
“The problem with swine flu is if I go anywhere, I will give it to other people so we have been forced to stay at home for a week. And that is why we can’t be there with you and we’re very sad about it.” Aamir asked Shah Rukh Khan to fill in for him who agreed.
Smriti Kiran, who was at the event with Anupama Chopra as Kiran Rao’s friend and collaborator on MAMI, posted on social media. “Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao both have swine flu, so couldn’t make it for the finale.

Among the guests at the event were Nita Ambani, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Ashutosh Gowariker, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Ram Madhvani and Nagraj Man Jule, she added.
