PK will have Gandhian philosophies: Raj Kumar Hirani
Panaji, Nov 22 (PTI) National-award winning filmmaker Raj Kumar Hirani’s upcoming movie ‘PK’ is likely to dwell on Gandhian philosophy similar to his previous 2006 blockbuster ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’.
‘PK’, which is expected to be a satire on Hindu Gods and godmen, stars Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles.
When asked whether ‘PK’ too will have a Gandhian touch like that of ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’, the 51-year-old director, who addressed a session on ‘Richard Attenborough and Gandhi’ said, “Of course, it will have.”
The director continued to retain the suspense on the storyline of the film, scheduled to hit theatres on December 19 adding, “I can’t talk much about ‘PK’ now and we all are pretty excited about it.”
The session was also attended by his producer-friend Vidhu Vinod Chopra on the sidelines of ongoing IFFI.
Chopra claimed that he was scared and apprehensive about the reactions to ‘PK’.
“I am scared before the release of every film and it is the case with PK too,” he said.
“I was scared before the release of the film ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’. We were not getting distributors to release the film as they felt the film is too boring without an item number in it. I told them there is item (referring to the role of Gandhi in the movie). That’s a fight we had to do. It was the most courageous attempt to present Gandhi as a friend,” he said.
‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’ starred Marathi actor Dilip Prabhalkar besides actor-duo Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi as the famous Munna-Circuit.
