Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari says superstar Aamir Khan gave his opinion on certain aspects of the movie, but never insisted his suggestions must be followed.
“Aamir is a very sorted actor and he knows where he should draw the line. He is a superstar. Whenever he feels he should give an opinion, he will give that opinion, but will never insist you. He gives a lot of respect to his writers and directors. I must say many a times his suggestions has really helped the film.”
Tiwari said Aamir was his first choice for Dangal. “I was very clear that I wanted to make this film with Aamir Khan and I am glad the producers were also happy with my choice. They then tried to fix an interview with him,” he said.
In a recent conversation with the media, Aamir has said, “Essentially, it is the director who is the creative head of a film. The final authority on all decisions lies with the director. That is how it should be. And then other team members can give their creative inputs. There was never a moment in Dangal where I had to overrule or had a strong disagreement with Nitesh.”
Dangal is set to release on December 23.
