They say two is a company but when two of the best minds come together expect a masterpiece. A lot of effort goes into making a movie and when you have a gifted actor like Aamir Khan essaying the central character of the movie directed by Raj Kumar Hirani, one of the ace film-makers of this country, we can expect nothing less than a masterpiece. The script, settings, characters, capturing human emotions all become an act of love for labour.
Raj Kumar Hirani and Aamir Khan’s next ambitious venture boasts of special efforts taken for character building. Interestingly, in a brainstorming session, Raj Kumar Hirani and Aamir Khan decided that the character of PK should be seen wearing worn-out or old clothes.
It was then Raju and Aamir came up with the idea of sourcing Aamir’s clothes from a different place altogether. For the first time ever, the makers if a movie that actually picked up clothes from random people on streets of the places they shot the movie at.
For instance, while they were shooting in Rajasthan, they wanted Aamir to wear the authentic prints that are a part of the culture of that state. So the team went down the streets and requested common men to give away their shirts that they had worn or they interesting ones they had at home in return for some money or a new shirt altogether.
The strangers were very supportive and happily gave their shirts to the team. When the entire collection was finally displayed in front of Raju Hirani and Aamir Khan, they were very pleased about how the look would eventually come out and how real to life it would look.
