Aamir Khan on a lookout for foreign distributors
Mumbai: Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist, Aamir Khan is quite busy these days, for the actor is currently in Europe meeting with scores of international distributors for his forthcoming projects – ‘Peepli Live’, ‘Delhi Belly’ and ‘Dhobi Ghat.’
News has it that since these are art house films, Aamir is keen to take his latest projects to a new level, where people appreciate sensible cinema. Vying for a global reach instead of sticking to the Hindi-speaking viewers, Aamir makes sure that he is also present during the sub-titling his films.
Talking to a news daily, a source said, "He is tying up with the distributors on this trip. During his last holiday in Europe, he had his first round of meetings and now he is making it official and signing up with the distribution houses that impressed him. Aamir was thrilled by the response ‘Peepli Live’ got at Sundance and other film festivals. He feels that his next three productions should be screened at art house theatres that don`t generally release Hindi films. He believes that there is a huge market for Indian movies to be seen on a global scene."
Aamir Khan Productions` films include ‘Peepli Live’, Abhinav Deo`s ‘Delhi Belly’ and Kiran Rao`s ‘Dhobi Ghaat.’
Buzz has it that Aamir is in talks with international studios like 20th Century Fox, Artificial Eye, Warner and Path ©.
When enquired, Aamir confirmed the reports and said, "Yes, I am in Europe for work and am meeting a lot of company heads for my forthcoming films."
