Legendary filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj who has given us gems like Maqbool, Omkara, Haider has currently revealed that Aamir Khan is the most daring superstar today who is picking up out of the box ideas and portraying an array of different characters.
Vishal says that he wants to approach bigger stars but he needs an apt story for it, in his words: “I want to work with superstars. I approach them. If there would have been some response, they would have been in some film of mine. But they aren’t there. There has to be a right subject. They are taking risk today and it is good sign for our cinema. Aamir Khan is the only daring actor. He transformed amazingly for Dangal. He admits and acknowledges his age and works accordingly.”
Vishal’s last film Patakhaa met with rave reviews and he is more than happy with the kind of response he got, he says: “I have a small or limited audience but I make films to cater to everyone. I would want everybody to watch my films but that doesn’t happen. So you don’t know your audience. And the day you come to know about this, you are finished. For me, it is always about the story I want to convey to people.”
The critically-acclaimed filmmaker is part of the international jury of the 20th edition of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
