Apart from being an excellent filmmaker, screenwriter and many other achievements, Peele is also a man with certain beliefs, resolves and principles. On his birthday today, let tell you some of the unknown facts about this man.

Poop leads to no acting

It’s perhaps a very well-known trivia about Peele that he quit acting because he was offered the role of Poop in The Emoji Movie. In an interview, Peele said, “The Emoji Movie actually helped me quit acting. I was offered the role of Poop.” He called the offer ‘Fucked Up’ and decided to sleep over it. By then the role moved on to Patrick Stewart.

Puppetry genius

For an Indian, to even read that someone majored in Puppetry is like being in a supernatural movie because such a thing will be branded ‘unnatural’ by our parents. However, Peele was quite popular among the ladies for the subject he majored in.

Black leads only

Peele irked a few of his fans when he declared his movies will always have black leads. Peele’s reasoning was that although he likes white people, he ‘has already seen that film.’

The first for many to come

Jordan Peele is the first African-American to win an Oscar for Best Orginal Screenplay with Get Out.

Quizzing Clinton

Peele, then 14, was one of the interviewers of the US President of that time Bill Clinton. On ABC’s President Clinton Answering Children’s Questions, Peela asked what to do about a father who is not willing to or can’t pay child support. The question stemmed out from his own situation of being with a single mother. Clinton apparently was quite stunned at the question and suggested stricter penalties on people who fail to provide child support.

Aamir Khan Shelves His Dream Mythological Project Mahabharat – Reports

Published

It’s been many years since we are hearing that Bollywood actor Aamir Khan wants to churn out a mythological tale based on the epic Mahabharat. After a hiatus, we also heard that the perfectionist star has dropped the plan of making the magnum opus for the big screen, but instead will be going the digital and web-series way. It was said that he is planning to make a multi-season franchise of his dream project. Well, now, the latest we read on SpotBoye is that Aamir has shelved his idea of making the film. Did Aamir Khan Replace Vijay Sethupathi In Laal Singh Chaddha Due To A Few ‘Extra Kilos’?

The report adds that after rigorously researching the subject for the last two years, the superstar has decided to shelve the epic saga (at least for now).  One of the major reason for dropping the project is that Aamir cannot invest many years in a huge project. Aamir Khan’s Mahabharata: Ranbir Kapoor as Arjuna, Ranveer Singh as Duryodhana and Deepika Padukone as Draupadi: Here’s Our Cast!

“Aamir can’t afford to devote two years of his life to make a web series (Mahabharat was planned as a web series). He needs to quickly announce his presence in a big star-studded feature film directed by a reliable director,” told a source to the portal. “There were bound to be unsavoury controversies surrounding the project. Aamir feels now is not the right time to make the Mahabharat,” the source added. Laal Singh Chaddha: Aamir Khan Gets Mobbed By Fans In Turkey Who Broke Social Distancing Norms To Click Pictures With the Actor. 

FYI, there has been no official confirmation on the news by Khan yet. Meanwhile, on the professional front, Aamir is in the news these days for his upcoming Laal Singh Chaddha that stars Kareena Kapoor Khan opposite him. Stay tuned!
