Aamir’s close friend and ‘Lagaan’ co-star Karim Hajee, in an interview to PTI said Amos collapsed in the morning and was rushed to the hospital by the actor, his director-wife Kiran Rao, and their team.” Amos worked with a superstar but was endearing and simple. He was like this to not just Aamir but everyone. He put everyone at ease and was a wonderful person. He had a wonderful heart, was so bright and a hard worker,” Karim told PTI.
