"No, I met him (Shah Rukh) twice in the last few months.
Once at Ajay Bijli's party, where we met after a long time. It felt wonderful spending time with him.
"Recently there was a get together at his place. We are meeting casually, just as friends. We haven't discussed work," Aamir said at a special press conference on his birthday.
The actor, who turned 52 on Tuesday, is currently gearing up for his forthcoming "Thugs of Hindostan".
There were reports that the actor has been approached for a biopic on Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to fly into space.
The film is reportedly titled be "Saare Jahan Se Achcha", as a tribute to Sharma's description of India from the space.
But Aamir says he is only working on 'Thugs' now and hasn't signed anything else. The actor, however, is excited to work with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in "Thugs..."
"This year I am very excited for one thing. I am a fan of Amitji and this is my first chance of working with him. I am so excited... The kind of actor that he is, the level that he has... I am sure I will learn a lot from him and it will be a very memorable experience for me," Aamir says.
The actor denied that the heavy moustache that he is sporting these days is the final look for the movie.
"We are still experimenting with different looks. This is one among them. But this is not the final look.

Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.
Unanswered questions on recent leftist alliance
Although they seem to be very much communist while in opposition, whether about the 'Indian semi-colonial status' in Nepal or American hegemony, this has never been evident while they actually come into power and rule Nepal.

What we need to learn from Thailand?
Thailand is a developing country. But it seemed like a developed country at first sight. It is hard to believe that Thailand is a developing country. There are big buildings, and clean and broad roads. The city is clean with no trace of pollution.
