Superstar Aamir Khan says he is "definitely" heading to theatres to watch legendary filmmaker V Shantaram’s 1972 Marathi film Pinjra, that has been restored and re-released in the state of Maharashtra.

The 51-year-old PK actor was thrilled with the restoration of the Marathi classic and urged his fans to watch it.

"Just got to know that PINJRA, V Shantaram’s last film, has been restored and re-released in theaters.

"We don’t often get to see films of one of our great film makers in the theater! I’m definitely going for it! Don’t miss it! Love. a," Aamir tweeted.

Pinjra starring Shriram Lagoo and Sandhya in lead roles, was also released in Hindi with the same title.

The movie revolved around a school teacher, Lagoo, who wants to change a Tamasha (Marathi folk musical theater) performer, played by Sandhya, but ends up falling in love with her.

The film’s songs, including Aali thumkat, Disla ga bai disla and Chhabidar chhabi are favourites to this day.

Aamir has been an avid viewer of Marathi cinema and he had also taken to Twitter to praise actor Nana Patekar’s performance in Natsamrat.
