Aamir Khan has always been known as a perfectionist in the film industry as well as with the audiences. But we think that he gets in to perfecting too much from choosing his heroines for his production, to becoming the director even after the film has been shot half! He took three years to perfect the look of Mangal Pandey, but the film could not do much business.
He also keeps the look of his film under wraps like he did with Lagaan and that habit have transferred to director Ashutosh Gowarikar also. He got angry when Sudhir Mishra was visiting his sets of Jodha Akbar at Karjat. Sudhir had, however, come on invitation from Nitin Desai, the owner of the studio. Now, the latest is that it took Aamir six years to release the home video of Lagaan.
We don't know what he was perfecting in that! Aamir says, "The release got delayed due to a clause in my contract with Sony TV, who had the satellite rights and I wanted to release it timely".
We just want to tell Aamir that we don't think he would have signed the contract without going through it.
