If reports are to be believed, Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film PK will also be a satire on “god and godmen” as stated by the director himself. Hirani was quoted saying, “PK is about God and godmen. It’s a satire that’s very close to me and Abhijat Joshi, who writes with me”. Coincidentally, a month after his statement, OMG – Oh My God! hit theatres. Since Hirani saw many indirect but strong similarities between the two scripts, he decided to make changes. There were rumors that due to this, there would be a delay in the shooting of the film. However, Hirani’s publicist stated that no such thing was true.
Presently, the poster of PK has been receiving a lot of attention, since it’s the first time that Aamir has posed almost nude. A lot of memes regarding the movie poster have been coming up on Facebook too. A few months ago, Khan was spotted in Delhi, shooting some major scenes for the film. The star was seen sporting a yellow helmet, wearing a transistor like a sling bag, holding a bunch of yellow pamphlets and chasing a behrupiya (an impressionist) dressed like Shiva. This scene clearly hints at the “god and godmen” theme.
Moreover, a case was filed against the director, actor and producer for promoting vulgarity and nudity. Besides, it is believed that Christmas time proves lucky for Aamir khan movies, given the previous blockbusters like 3 Idiots and Dhoom 3. As a result, PK will be released on 19th December, 2014.
How ironic that the film is a satire on god and godmen itself, right?
