Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan are leaving no stone unturned to promote their upcoming films Paa and 3 Idiots respectively - the two were in a meeting on Sunday to discuss marketing gimmicks for both the films.

Paa is releasing on December 4, while 3 Idiots hits the screens on December 25.

Aamir, who excels at promotional gimmicks for his movies, has so far had a live chat with fans on the Internet. The actor also reportedly got in touch with them through social-networking websites and even launched the music of the film online.

Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, 3 Idiots has been produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Based on Chetan Bhagat's bestseller Five Point Someone, it stars R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Kareena Kapoor apart from Aamir.

Big B too is promoting Paa, in which he plays a 13-year-old suffering from the disease progeria that causes premature ageing. He says his fans often come to visit him on Sundays and that he plans to "give hand outs autographed by me or maybe by Auro".

"There is a unique way in which the promotion for Paa is scheduled over the radio and soon you shall all be in a position to witness it...," the Big B wrote in his blog,

"Talks have now been initiated for the premiere to be held in not one, not two, but three centres. And we are diligently working on a London-Dubai-Mumbai destination. The logistics and the mechanics are being worked out and hopefully there will be some news soon," he added.

Directed by R. Balakrishnan, Paa stars Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan as Amitabh's parents.
