Aamir Khan is gearing up for his next film Dhoom 3. Touted to be the most expensive film of this year, Dhoom 3 sees Aamir Khan in a grey role. Talking about how films should be entertaining, he says “I feel that whoever buys a ticket to my film, doesn’t go back feeling that it was a waste. The audience should feel entertained. That’s all. I don’t get into numbers. It has to touch hearts what money it makes, that doesn’t matter to me.”
When asked what he feels about his films which were not commercially successful, the perfectionist says “My failures have taught me as much as my successful films, and they are equally special to me. There are a lot of films I did that didn’t make me happy, but it is also true that you don’t always get success despite all efforts. When I look back and see these films, I feel that I’ve learnt a lot from my unsuccessful films. Those are my biggest learnings.”
He also says it upsets him when producers lose money because of unsuccessful films. “I don’t like it if anyone suffers loss,” he said. “I feel upset as I feel people should get their money back from a film, and make at least 10 to 15 percent profit at least. Whether they make Rs. 200 crore or Rs. 400 crore, I am not interested in it. But I like my films to be commercially viable,” he said.
Dhoom 3, which sees Aamir Khan doing spectacular stunts, will release on December 20th.
