Mumbai: Reema Kagti, helming Talaash
is back again with the 'perfect' superstar Aamir Khan with her second project which is up for release on November 30. Where most people think that the actor could be hard-task, Reema say that Aamir is smooth.
Kagti teams up with Aamir Khan again after having assisted making of Lagaan
and Dil Chahta Hai
, both starring Aamir Khan. Kagti said that she enjoyed directing the superstar. "I didn't find him very rigid. I had worked with him in Lagaan
and Dil Chahta Hai
and I had seen how he was. So, honestly, I really wasn't worried. He was very supportive. He really took the trouble to understand my vision and supported me with it," she said.
"I always felt that Aamir had the deepest respect for my vision. We never had a difference in opinion. I told him what I wanted to do with the film and he liked it. In this case, I don't think I had any fears of my film going out of my hands," she said.
Kagti said she believed in taking suggestions from team members while making a film. "I feel that a part of directing is giving your crew a fair hearing. Taking good ideas from people, taking inputs never diminishes a director's control. That's just the way filmmaking works. It is a collaborative art form," she said.
Kagti, who co-scripted Talaash
with friend Zoya Akhtar, the director of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
, said that the two are "not stuck at the hip all the time", but they were "best friends" and "enjoy writing together". Kagti and Akhtar are working on two more scripts together. "Zoya and I are developing two new stories. One for me to direct and one for Zoya and, hopefully, we will have something in our hands in the next couple of months," she said.
Also, Reema Kagti says that box-office collections only indicate how many people watched your film, and not liked your film. "All these numbers tell you how many people went to see the film and not how many people liked the film. So I feel if you want to judge a film, you can't just take the numbers approach. It's a creative art form at the end of the day," Kagti said.
