All those following the proceedings in Bollywood know that A.R. Murugadoss is the director of Aamir Khan's Christmas release, GHAJINI. He was also the director of the original Tamil version of GHAJINI, which was a blockbuster down south and as a result the intelligent Aamir Khan agreed to keep Murugadoss on as the director of its Hindi remake too.
There is a buzz that director Murugadoss was very nervous at the time when Aamir Khan was to watch the final rough cut of the film. The reason being that Aamir Khan being a perfectionist is not easily satisfied and Murugadoss was not sure how the film had turned out to be and whether the unedited version of the film would please the actor or not. The director however heaved a sigh of relief when (after watching the rough cut) Aamir passed the film suggesting a few changes here and there, which included a few reshoots too.
Needless to add that Murugadoss was highly pleased to have passed the acid test, knowing fully well the consequences (remember Amol Gupte in TZP?) if his efforts had not pleased the actor perfectionist, and now director perfectionist too!
Well, we have full faith in Aamir Khan's judgment and it appears that we have another excellent film in the form of GHAJINI, after the superlative TAARE ZAMEEN PAR!
GHAJINI will be released by Big Pictures in Overseas.
