Despite having worked with megastar Amitabh Bachchan (AKS) and superstar Aamir Khan (RANG DE BASANTI), Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra insists that his films deal with characters and not stars or superstars. The accomplished director clarifies by saying that it's the film and the story that works and not the stars who make films work.

CHECK OUT: DELHI 6 - Bollywood savior this season?

Maybe that was the reason why Rakeysh has worked so hard on the script of his upcoming Friday release, DELHI 6, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Waheeda Rahman. As is known, a lot of input in DELHI 6 was Rakeysh's own experience of his childhood days in old Delhi, earlier known as DILLI 6 (due to the postal code) since his whole family, both maternal and paternal belong to Delhi.

Script writer Kamlesh extended the story idea further but what will come as a surprise to many is that lyricist Prasoon Joshi too played a very important part in the script writing, apart from handling the lyrics and dialogues as well. Rakeysh acknowledges Prasoon's help saying that Joshi took the story to a completely different level through his creative inputs. And it is the combined efforts of all the three that DELHI 6 and its collage of characters take shape in the film.

Rightly said - It's the story and script that touches the heart and stars can only help in bringing the audience to the theatres! Rest, as they say, depends upon the merit of the film.
