Bollywood Star Aamir Khan says that there are many other “talented stars” in Bollywood. The actor-producer Aamir Khan contributes good work in the Indian film industry.
On Monday, Aamir was present at the event for a song launch of his upcoming movie “Secret Superstar.” Movies of Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan always mark 100 crores in 3 to 4 days of their release. But neither Shah Rukh’s movie “Jab Harry Met Sejal” nor Salman’s “Tubelight” mark the big box office collection.
While asking about the trend is changing and Indian audience prefers content-driven cinema compared to star studded films. The actor said that “To say that the trend has changed is a very big statement, but I think there are ups and downs in every creative person’s life. We all try our best to do our work, we try to make sure that everyone likes the films that we make. But at times we succeed, at times we fail.”
He added that “I think we should not get fazed by that. We should continue to do what we believe in.”
Also, Aamir said, “And I think whenever you (media) talks about the stars, it’s wrong to mention just the 3 names (Shah Rukh, Salman, and Aamir). I think there are many talented stars who have a huge following. Akshay Kumar released a new film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ which is being loved by everyone.”
“All of us are there, we are trying to do good work. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes we don’t. I don’t think it shouts directly on the immediate stardom of a person.”
Is Aamir looking nervous about his film?
“We are trying to release in August at first. But there was a lot more work we still wanted to do and we would not have finished it in time, so we pushed it forward. Usually, it sad that people are so engrossed on Diwali with the celebration that they don’t really go to watch films on the same day, and according to producers and distributors, it isn’t the right day to release the film”
Aamir said, “But for us, the box office collection isn’t important. We wanted to release the film on a day which is emotionally important to us.”
He said on the clash with “Golmaal Again”, “I think Diwali is a day which has a bandwidth to take 2 releases. So that was never a concern for us. You will see Diwali always has 2 releases… It is very rare that only one release for the film.”
“So the day had the space to release 2 films, also the genres of both the films are very different. ‘Golmaal Again’ is an out-and –out entertainer and ‘Secret Superstar’ for us is a very important story… I don’t think there is any clash.”
Aamir’s new film “Secret Superstar” is a produced by Aamir and Kiran Rao, which is musical drama written and directed by Advait Chandan. The movie also has stars Zaira Wasim and Meher Vij.
