Japanese filmmaker hopes to direct Bollywood actor Aamir Khan
The acting acumen of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who has found a fan following in China, has caught the eye of Japanese filmmaker Norihiro Koizumi who hopes to direct the actor someday.
Known for the successful Japanese “Chihayafuru” trilogy, Koizumi came to India last month for a Japanese Film Festival organized by PVR Cinemas by The Japan Foundation. It was his first time in India. Not only did he have a great time looking at “happy” faces and tasting the variety of food, but he also got a new perspective about Indian cinema.
He says before he came to India, he saw 3 Idiots and Dangal. “Both of them had the same actor... Aamir Khan. He is a great actor,” said Koizumi, who doesn’t rule out a chance of an Indian collaboration. “Yes, it could happen... With Aamir Khan. I think he could be in Japanese cinema too. Maybe I could direct Indian cinema if I have a chance... I don’t know about the musical scenes though,” he quipped, breaking into a bout of laughter. (IANS)
