Responding to a query, Aamir Khan disapproved tendency of some quarters of inflating box-office figures of a film.
"I think we should stop thinking about figures. Because if a
creative person does a film keeping figures in mind, then the
choice of films becomes narrow. A creative person should never
think of numbers."
"We have been facing this for many years. I don't know why.. we
have not been able to work as a unit. It is unfortunate. In every
field, you see there are labour unions, there are press
associations. A community, it remains together, benefits all.
Hopefully, we will work towards that. I hear that producers are
united in the South (Southern film industry)," he said.
Producer of PK, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who had earlier teamed
with Aamir in 3-Idiots, said that his company shares
independent box office collections openly.
On the trend of remakes of south Indian films, Bollywood's
'perfectionist' said filmmakers from Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam
film industries are coming up with some "unusual stuff".
He described ace Telugu director S S Rajamouli, who gave hits
like Magadheera, Maryada Ramannaand
Eega(Makkhiin Hindi), as a very
talented director and said he would like to work with him, if there
is an opportunity.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, PKalso stars actors
Sanjay Dutt, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput and is slated
to release on December 19.
