Why is Kangana Ranaut the next Aamir Khan of Bollywood?

If there is any actress who is truly commanding Bollywood and intelligently taking her decisions like Mr. Perfectionist aka Aamir Khan is indeed Kangana Ranaut.

An example of her intelligence can be gauged from her brave decision of daring to decline the lucrative offer opposite Salman Khan in his forthcoming movie SULTAN being produced by Yashraj Films. 

Insider’s claims Adi Chopra himself had spoken to Kangana Ranaut to do the role as he tried to convince her that the heroine’s role was not just of a ‘showcase’ but quite challenging yet Kangana diplomatically denied the offer reasoning ‘date issues’.

Briefing media Kangana Ranaut clarified the buzz that had taken Bollywood by storm that she is working opposite Salman Khan in SULTAN. Making her stand clear she said, “I am not working in SULTAN because I have committed my dates to Vishal Bhardwajji for his upcoming film RANGOON opposite Shahid Kapoor.”

One would wonder declining a Yashraj Film with Salman Khan as hero as nothing but pure insanity on part of Kangana but on close observation it is clear that Kangana Ranaut has taken an intelligent decision because she is aware in a Salman Khan film, the heroine is always a decorative piece and Kangana does not wish to limit herself to such cheap roles just to amass publicity and wealth.

After winning accolades for her superlative histrionics in heroine oriented films QUEEN and TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS, Kangana Ranaut can consolidate her position with similar movies and establish herself like legendary actresses Nargis, Meena Kumari, Nutan, Waheeda Rehman, Asha Parekh etc. who were at par with heroes and demanded equal remunerations.

However talented actresses like Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil had ruined their status after running after commercial movies and doing insignificant roles.

Hence Kangana Ranaut’s decision to work with intelligent film makers like Vishal Bhardwaj can be fruitful than doing irrelevant glamour doll roles in commercial hero oriented movies with the so called Khan’s!!

Aamir Khan Saves DIL DHADAKNE DO cruise from drowning!

Do not get surprised because though Zoya Akhtar’s third film DIL DHADAKNE DO may have a huge star cast of Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma but none could save the film DIL DHADAKNE DO from drowning at the box office due to its dreary long narrative but thankfully the saving grace of the film is none other but Aamir Khan! 

Yes Aamir Khan!! Though the brilliant actor may be not present in the film physically but his voiceover for the Mehra family's pet dog has left the audience in peals of laughter and is the prime reason for the movie’s success. 

According to film trade pundits the movie opened to a lukewarm response (Surprisingly despite a multi star cast) with a mere 25 to 30 per cent occupancy on Friday that too only in Metro cities but due to word of mouth publicity about the hilarious voiceover by Aamir Khan for Pluto Mehra, the bullmastiff dog of Mehra family the box office collection saw an instant rise.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh informed that DIL DHADAKNE DO collected a modest Rs10.53 crore on Friday but with word of mouth publicity the collection picked up and showed a good jump on second day at the domestic box office as the film collected Rs 12.27 crore on Saturday. The two-day box-office collection of DIL DHADAKNE DO stands at Rs 22.80 crore. 

Pluto Mehra, the bullmastiff dog is the backbone of the movie as he is the narrator of the story and gives it a philosophical twist, making the tale absorbing and believable with his sarcasm comments at appropriate situation sending the audience in laughter and at times compelling to ponder. 

Readers would be surprised to know that initially Javed Akhtar, eminent lyrist, scriptwriter and father of Zoya Akhtar had dubbed for Pluto but when Zoya narrated the character of Pluto to Aamir Khan, he was bowled over by of Pluto’s satirical character and literally jumped up to give voiceover.
