Learnt from Salman, Aamir to present things clearly: Advani
Director Nikhil Advani says he has learnt from superstars Salman Khan and Aamir Khan to present things in a clear way in his films even as he lauds Shah Rukh Khan’s selflessness as an actor. Nikhil directed Shah Rukh in Kal Ho Na Ho and Salman in Salaam-E-Ishq. Aamir has helped him with his upcoming film Katti Batti.
“Both Salman and Aamir sat on the edit table for Hero and Katti Batti, respectively. Both say the same things to present things in a clear way in the film. This is what I have learnt from them,” Nikhil told in an interview here.
“I think the greatest strength that Shah Rukh has an actor is when he approaches a scene he knows he is going to be fantastic, but he tries how to make everybody else fantastic. He is very selfless as an actor,” he said.
Nikhil has no plans to direct any of the Khans in near future. “They (Khans) chose their directors... directors don’t <g data-gr-id="21">chose</g> them,” he said.
“According to Aamir, this film is Imran’s best performance and he called up Kangana and said she is outstanding. He asked me to bring clarity in the film and he sat with me on the edit and in a week we made the changes,” Nikhil said.
