In spite a few poor reviews from critics, Ghajini is playing to packed houses both at home and abroad. Obviously Aamir Khan is elated. The producers are so ecstatic that they are dubbing the movie into Spanish now. The buzz is that they really wish to release it in the US and also possibly south of the border – 35 million Americans speak Spanish as a prime language.
Madhu Mantena, one of the film's producers has said, "The Spanish community is the second largest community after the Americans in the US. So we plan to give it a mainstream Spanish release in the US. We are mainly targeting the west coast and Mexican bordes that have a huge Spanish population." Interestingly Aamir may never have become involved with the movie if it hadn't been for co-star Pradeep Rawat, the actor who played villain in the Tamil version which had Surya in the lead.
A source says, "Aamir Khan usually has Diwali parties at his house. It was at one of these parties that Pradeep Rawat, who has worked with him in a couple of films like Lagaan and Sarfarosh, told him about the film." Now this is one interesting revelation. Should we say that the perfectionist always manages to stand out somehow?
