Aamir Khan clearly believes in less supply leading to more demand. No, don't worry. He is not thinking of becoming an economist.

The perfectionist actor, who is known for his razorsharp marketing skills to promote his films, has already started thinking of the most effective ways to catch the attention of the audience for his forthcoming production Dhobi Ghat starring Pratik.

And it starts with Aamir instructing Pratik to stay away from the public eye as much as possible. Aamir wants the young actor to lie low as he feels this will arouse curiosity and create more buzz about the film directed by Aamir's wife Kiran Rao.

Has Pratik taken kindly to this demand? We guess not. After all Pratik is only 23 years old and is known to flaunt his bohemian lifestyle. Any youngster who is forced to drastically cut down on his partying is bound to be unhappy about suddenly leading a restricted life.

In the past too, Aamir had kept Asin under wraps during the making and release of Ghajini. A friend of Pratik says, “Dhobi Ghat is Kiran's directorial debut. So, Aamir wants to do all he can for the betterment of the film. Pratik is a young boy and has an active social life. He is known to frequently attend various events. Aamir has categorically asked him not to be seen constantly by the media or public.”

“Pratik has signed several films so he was obviously in the news for his professional life and also for various other reasons related to his social life. The newcomer was also busy with several interviews and shoots but now all that has changed. Pratik had to back out after he got a call from Aamir,” adds the friend. “Pratik has to be very cautious before thinking about getting out of his house.”     Aamir and Pratik were unavailable for comment.
