Aamir Khan wanted to make film on 100 years of Indian cinema
As Indian cinema completes 100 years, actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan has revealed that he was keen on making a film to mark the centenary.
To celebrate the landmark of Indian cinema, four top Bollywood directors – Dibakar Banerjee, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap – have directed Bombay Talkies, an anthology of four short stories.
“I was looking to make a film on 100 years of cinema…I wanted to do something but couldn’t do it. I am happy that the Indian cinema has completed 100 years and happy to be part of this industry. My completion of 25 years in the industry coincides with 100 years of cinema and it makes me feel all the more special,” Aamir told reporters.
Many Bollywood A-listers will be seen together in the title track of Bombay Talkies. The song, which begins with Aamir and ends with Shah Rukh Khan, features Kareena Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Anil Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri Dixit, Aamir Khan, Vidya Balan, Sridevi, Ranbir Kapoor and many other celebrities.
“It was great fun doing the song and being part of it. It feels great to be alongside such talented people in Bombay Talkies. I think there were many people (celebrities) who were missed out (from this song),” he said.
