The Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan says it is very difficult to remake a film from its original version and retain the original emotion of the movie. The actor said that original films are made with such emotion that you cannot simply remake them and get the same feeling out of it.
“Everyone has their own reasons to remake a film, but if I ever make a remake then the reason would [be that] the material, the story, the characters, the moments of that film excite me so much that I want to experience them personally as a creative person and if possible then would interpret in my own way.
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is so fond of films from the 1950 and 1960s that he wishes he was an actor in that era, which he describes as the golden period of Indian cinema.
“To me the 1950s and 1960s were the golden period of Indian cinema. During that time creative talents – be it directors, actors, lyricists, composers, writers – every department used to be excellent,” Khan told reporters on Saturday night at PVR Phoenix Mill, where he attended the screening of the Shammi Kapoor-starrer Teesri Manzil.
