Aamir Khan To Produce ‘Female Version’ of PK?

Remember Hema Malani starrer SITA AUR GEETA that was a rehash of thespian Dilip Kumar’s super duper hit film RAM AUR SHYAM. The only difference was that writers Salm Javed had cunningly alternated the protagonist from male to female. The result, as expected, was yet another bumper hit at the box office. Aamir Khan is doing the same thing.

The intelligent actor cum filmmaker has decided to bank on the publicity of his controversial film PK by alternating the male protagonist into female. Also he has changed the backdrop from an alien landing on earth to a Muslim conservative girl aspiring to become a film star. How she is exploited in the name of tradition and family values will form the crux of the film. The movie will also unleash the protagonist’s trials and tribulations and expose the orthodox societal stereotypes.

If grapevine are to believed Aamir Khan has decided to announce the making of this film at his 50th birthday celebration. The movie unlike his last film TALAASH, will be a small budget film like his previous films PEEPLI LIVE and DELHI BELLY. It will be made under his Aamir Khan Production. 

According to close sources with Aamir Khan Production, the movie is titled ‘The Secret Superstar’. Since the movie will be made on shoe string budget Aamir Khan will be introducing a fresh face for the lead role. 

What is ironical is that recently at the DVD release of PK; Aamir Khan had apologised to his fans that may have been offended by his last film 'PK' saying that there was no intention by the makers to hurt religious sentiments of anyone. And now Aamir Khan is himself making yet another movie on a similar subject to mint money! 

Isn’t it pure hypocrisy?

Birthday Special - Why is Aamir Khan called Mr. Perfectionist!

Papa kehte hain bada naam karegaa…

When Aamir Khan sung this song in his debut movie QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK (QSQT) little he must have realized that he will go on to become such a huge star that he will not only take his papa’s name to dizzy height of popularity but would also unfold country’s name worldwide.

Today Aamir Khan is not only a national icon but he is one of the most sought after star in international film market. Ever since he hit headlines with his Oscar nominated for his colonial drama ‘LAGAAN’ the international cinema is yearning to cast him in their movies. Speaking about the international offers Aamir recently revealed. He said, “There were many offers but none of them offers were exciting.” “Moreover I prefer working in India but if I get something good wherever in China or America or Japan then I may work but emotionally I am always here and I will work here only," he quipped. 

Considered as the desi version of Tom Hanks, Aamir is termed Mr. Perfectionist for his passion for details and a hawk eye for excellence. He is one of those few rare actors of Bollywood who believes in authentic or natural performances. His craze for perfection can simply be gauged from the fact that for his forthcoming film DANGAL, in which he plays a middle aged wrestler, Aamir has put on 22 kilos to get into the skin of the character. He says, “I was 68 kg while shooting for my movie PK but now I am 90 kg. I have stopped non vegetarian food and I am learning wrestling and Haryanvi to live the character suitably.”


To pump fuel into his performances Aamir Khan is known for tactfully selecting his movies in which he can be as diverse as possible. From the flamboyant teenage lover in QSQT to the rustic peasant in LAGAAN, to the roadside ruffian in RANGEELA, to college student in 3 IDIOTS, to a psychopath in GHAJINI, a comic caper in ANDAAZ APNA APNA or the adorable alien in PK. 

Aamir has broken all boundaries of commercial and art cinema. While Aamir has won both critical and commercial success he has also tasted the bitter side of Stardom i.e. criticism and controversies.

On 14 th March Aamir Khan celebrates his 50 th birthday on this auspicious occasion Raaga.Com wishes the actor many happy returns of the day and prays Tum jiyo hazaro saal….
