Aamir Khan said he is not thinking about the box office collection of Dangal and rather wants the film to touch the hearts of people.
When asked about if Dangal will collect 40 crore on opening day he said, “I don’t think so (it will make Rs 40 crore) as it’s a non-holiday time. I am not thinking about the numbers I am concerned about the audience’s reaction. I don’t have interest in numbers. I just want the film to touch the hearts of audience.” He was talking to reporters yesterday.
Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao says even for her money is not important, but audience love matters the most. “Our biggest victory will be when people will like the film. We have made this film with so much love, we hope we have done justice to the film. People coming and watching the film will be an award for us,” she added.
Aamir Khan also said, “I am happy with the response that we are getting for Dangal. We had a screening for media and even you all liked it.
Aamir is also not thinking about winning awards for Dangal, including the Oscars. When asked his opinion on Dangal going for Oscars, Aamir says, “We want the Indian audience to enjoy the film and that’s the biggest award for us. I am not interested in awards. This year, we are not eligible. Next year, we will see as it’s a process, the committee here (in India) has to chose the film if it’s chosen, then I can talk about it.”
Some of the award functions have already happened even before the release of Dangal which is considered as the best film of 2016.
