The director who is gearing up for Sonakshi Sinha's Akira met Aamir and here's what happened...
Actor Aamir Khan may team up with with director A R Murgadoss again after their last outing Ghajini. Murgadoss says he recently met the actor and they discussed about a possible collaboration in future.
"Aamir sir invests a lot a time in each project to deliver great cinema. I am also involved in projects down south and here. So, the timing is just not right," Murugadoss said. "I recently met him and requested that we should do a film together as it has been so long. He has also agreed, if the dates fall in place. I will definitely do a film with him in future," he said.
The Akira director is now looking forward to Aamir's performance in the upcoming biopic Dangal where the actor portrays wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who taught wrestling to his daughters.
"I saw the first look of Dangal. He had shaped his body really well in Ghajini and then again in Dhoom 3. Again I saw his young look with six packs that was released recently."
When Murgadoss had met Aamir recently, he was in the get-up of the aged wrestler and the director thought it would be an uphill task for the actor to shed those extra pounds.
"He was in the old get-up with lot of body weight and I thought to myself that he can never come back to shape again but to my surprise I saw his young look for Dangal. I was shocked. I think only Aamir sir can pull off something like this with his grit and determination."
Murgadoss is hopeful that like Aamir's previous films, Dangal will also be a huge box office hit. "I have no doubts that this movie will succeed and cross his (previous) milestone," he added.
Aamir, recently, said he was not keen on pursuing a career in the west and also revealed he was offered Hollywood movies in the past but he did not like the scripts. "Working in the west doesn't interest me particularly. what interests me is a good film. It should be a film that touches my heart and I feel I can perform in. Where the film is made is irrelevant. There have been number of offers to me from Hollywood but I did not like the scripts."
The 3 Idiots star also said doing international projects will not give him the same joy, which he gets when his work is received well by the Indian audience. "Why i don't feel like doing that (work in the west) is because I feel I have an emotional connection with my audience, with the people of this country. It is a relationship that we have built over 27 years, something that I value a lot. I don't want to leave my audience behind.
