Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj says though superstars are taking risks by doing out-of-the-box films today, for him, Aamir Khan is the only daring actor. Bhardwaj says he needs an apt story to collaborate with top actors. “I want to work with superstars. I approach them. If there would have been some response, they would have been in some film of mine. But they aren’t there. There has to be a right subject. They are taking risk today and it is good sign for our cinema. Aamir Khan is the only daring actor. He admits and acknowledges his age and works accordingly,” Bhardwaj said.
He is happy with the rave reviews his latest directorial venture Pataaka — featuring relatively new faces like Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan, received. The director acknowledges he has his own set of audience which enjoys watching his kind of cinema. He said, “I have a small or limited audience, but I make films to cater to everyone. I would want everybody to watch my films, but that doesn’t happen. So you don’t know your audience. And the day you come to know about this, you are finished. For me, it is always about the story I want to convey to people.” There has been speculation that Bhardwaj, 53, is set to adapt a book for Netflix.
