    Aamir’s Hindustan Times Interview.

    ‘The promotions for your film Talaash are very low-key. Is that by choice or by chance?
    It’s certainly by choice. A lot of thought and effort has gone into how to promote the film. It’s a suspense drama, and if we aggressively promote it, the impact may be hampered. I can put up 10,000 posters to create a buzz, but if the design of the poster is not good enough, then the whole effort is pointless. I have always emphasised quality over quantity and I will continue doing so even if the movie doesn’t have a buzz. We know what we are doing.

    And it’s an Aamir Khan film, so it doesn’t need much promotion…
    I don’t see it like that. Aamir Khan is not someone so special. I am just one of the many integral components of the film. I react to and await other people’s films. I really look forward to a Raju Hirani film. I remember how I waited for Munnabhai M.B.B.S. (2003) and Lage Raho Munnabhai (2006).

    But what do you have to say about ghost-directing your films?
    Honestly, every label accorded to me is by the media and hugely inaccurate. So I don’t have much to say about monikers like ‘perfectionist’, or ‘ghost-director’. If somebody wants to cast aspersions on my relationship with my directors, then it is their lookout. However, by saying that I ghost-direct, the media has overlooked the contributions of my directors in my movies. I have always said that I have worked with hugely talented directors and have learnt a lot from them.

    How much of Aamir Khan the director we will see in Talaash?
    Nothing. I am just an actor in it. It’s Reema Kagti’s baby and her vision. She’s done a wonderful job and now it’s there for everyone to see. I am really happy that what Reema had narrated to me is exactly out there now. We have managed to make the film that we had set out to do.

    Aamir and his co-stars Rani and Kareena in Talaash
    What’s it like to work with Rani Mukerjee and Kareena Kapoor?
    It’s always been great working with Rani. She’s a very instinctive and talented actror. The same applies to Kareena. They are two of the finest actors in the country. Honestly, it’s a great joy to work with them.

    How is life at 47? Have your priorities changed over time?
    I am very thankful to God for the life I am currently leading. But I am not sure my priorities have changed. I am still as honest as I used to be and I am still leading the same life without having to compromise anything, be it my personal or professional life.

    You are perceived as a strong family man…
    I have continuously been a family man, very close to my family. They have always been the most important thing in my life. My personal life has always been very private and it’s the same even now. I spent 16 lovely years with Reena, and the time now that I am with Kiran or my siblings and my children, every moment has been important for me.

    Your son Junaid is an assistant director to Raju Hirani, right?
    Yes. It was my suggestion that he learns something about cinema and gets a new experience in life before he makes his choices. It will help him in the long run. Let him discover it and tell us what he wants to do in the future. Once he has a little understanding of the craft, let him choose. It’s too early to assume that he will end up in movies. It could be acting or directing; everything is going to be his choice. He is doing his B.Com now.

    And Ira, has she ever expressed any desire to act?
    She’s only in the 9th standard. So far she hasn’t said anything. But the choice is open to her as well. I will support whatever she chooses.

    Tell us the secret of your youthful looks.
    Thanks to my parents, I guess it’s in my genes. A lot of people ask me if I have gone under the knife. No, I haven’t. You don’t need to. That’s the short cut and the effects are temporary. In the last five years, I have discovered that you are what you eat. So I am very particular about my diet, work out and sleep. I have a balanced diet. And unlike earlier years, I am religious about my workouts and yes, I unfailingly sleep for eight hours and drink about four litres of water every day. I maintain a very positive and balanced life. That’s my secret.

    Actors are pretty lucky. They get to romance much younger actresses all the time!
    I guess I am fortunate to have a long innings in movies. Next year I will have been in the industry for 25 years, so naturally when you keep working for so long, people keep on changing, be it younger directors or younger actresses. But I genuinely feel an actor’s peak time is about eight to 10 years maximum. Be it a female actor or a male actor, this is when they can make it. And they shine in that period. Everyone in the course of their time has their moment of sunshine. If it’s me today, someone else will be there tomorrow.

    Do you realise that most of the actresses you’ll be working with today are taller than you?
    Oh! Really? I never noticed that. But that’s fine. Height was never an issue with me. I just know that they are all very talented people. Be it Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra. I think Priyanka was awesome in Barfi.

    We heard that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan patched up at the after party of the Jab Tak Hai Jaan premiere and you were apparently instrumental in reviving this friendship.
    It’s not my place to comment on other people’s personal lives and relationships. But what I can say is that Adi (Aditya Chopra) had organised a lovely evening in memory of his father Yashji (Yash Chopra), and I am glad that so many from the film fraternity came and interacted with each other warmly. It was a wonderful night.

    A movie with the three Khans would be wonderful…
    I would love to work with both (the other Khans). And why three Khans only? I haven’t worked with Amitji and Akshay Kumar, I would want to work with these people as well. It’ll be great if someone casts us in a movie.

    Amongst the younger lot, do you see any potential Aamir Khan?
    Today’s youngsters have unique individuality and they are highly talented. They are great the way they are. And they don’t need to be like any of us. I think Imran Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranvir Singh are good.

    If any of your films were to have sequels, which would you choose?
    Sarfarosh (1999) and Andaz Apna Apna (1994) for sure. These are good films and had interesting endings.’

        Yes. I did not post the whole interview – posted only the movie, stars related part. In the earlier part of the interview he talks about his Haj trip too.
