It seems that the super-success of TAARE ZAMEEN PAR is making Bollywood rethink about the promotional plans for the upcoming films. This could well be the reason why a child actor Aman Siddique is hogging most of the limelight in BHOOTHNATH. Surprising though because the film stars none other than Amitabh Bachchan in the lead along with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
Agreed that the film is centered on the relationship between the child actor and the character played by Big B and the latter is a ghost who can obviously not be seen. Also Shah Rukh Khan is mainly in a guest appearance. Still, till not just a few months back, any maker would have looked at making most of the presence of these two superstars rather than a child actor.
However, to one's pleasant surprise, one can see Bollywood growing with focus being more on the script and it's characters rather than stars. This is why in the current promotion of BHOOTHNATH; the conversations between Aman Siddique and his invisible friend 'Bhoothnath' hold the center stage.
Well, thanks Aamir Khan for getting a new perspective on!
