Vishal Bhardwaj: Aamir Khan is the only daring actor who acknowledges his age and works
Aamir Khan has often been called Mr Perfectionist and rightly so! The ‘Dangal’ actor is known to be taking risks and give his all efforts when it comes to preparing for a role. So, it comes as a no surprise when director Vishal Bhardwaj says that he is the only daring actor in the Bollywood.
Vishal Bhardwaj told news agency PTI, “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,” added Vishal Bhardwaj.
Aamir Khan in his three-decade-long career has portrayed many roles and can truly be said that he is a totally versatile actor. Aamir’s films such as ‘Taare Zameen Par, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Rang De Basanti, ‘PK’, ‘Dangal’ have been very different when it comes to storytelling and treatment. The superstar truly chooses roles, where his heart belongs and not where the market or commerce forces him to go.
Vishal Bhardwaj’s last project ‘Pataakha’ didn’t do great business and his next film was set to bring together ‘Piku‘ actors- Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone but due to Irrfan’s ill health, the film was put on hold. Now the director had said that he will probably start shooting for the movie by next year.
