Aamir Khan is not at war with Shahrukh Khan!

Aamir Khan who is gearing up for his upcoming crime/thriller Talaash, will be seen on the big screen in a major role almost after three years. In an interview, the actor spoke about his upcoming film, about the issue between the ‘Khans’ and about his co-stars, Rani Mukherjee and Kareena Kapoor.

Aamir said that he got inclined towards doing Talaash because of it’s plot and suspense quotient.

Aamir Khan said: “It’s essentially a suspense drama. The reason why I chose Talaash and the reason that it attracted me was because not only is it a great suspense story where when I heard the script I couldn’t tell what was going to happen next, it’s also an exciting story and it held that suspense for me. But at its heart it’s a story about coming to terms with loss.

It’s a very emotional story at its core. And each one of us has either lost somebody close to us or we are afraid of losing someone close to us. So losing somebody close to you is a reality for all of us. That’s how life is. So here is a film which apart from being a suspense drama is a film which helps you, perhaps, to come to terms with loss.”

Talking about his experience about working with Rani and Kareena, Aamir said that both of them are the finest and most dedicated actresses in the film industry.

“It’s been great working with both of them. Both are very fine actors and both are very good human beings. I get along really well with both of them. It’s great fun to work with both of them. When you work with a good artist there is a certain chemistry that you share which makes a scene come alive. You have a certain give and take and that helps your own performance. I think that happens with Rani and Kareena and they’re both fantastic actresses and people will really enjoy seeing the two of them together in the film,” said the 47 year old.

When he was asked about the issue between the ‘Khans’, and why people give so much importance to it, Aamir Khan said: “I don’t get the importance. Is there a war between me and Shahrukh right now? Not that I know of. So it’s of no consequence to me.”

He ended the interview on a light note saying that no one is a perfectionist, and he loves his job, that’s why his films do well.

“I don’t think I’m a perfectionist. I don’t think anyone can be. I do enjoy my work and therefore I work with a lot of love and care and I don’t leave any stone unturned from my side. I don’t think anything can be perfect, especially in the creative field. There’s no such thing as perfect. In the creative field it’s all about what the vision of the director is and what happens organically in that moment. In another moment, that same thing will happen differently. That’s the reality of creative work. So there is no such thing as perfection in creative work,” he said.
