Raju Hirani, who has only directed blockbusters like 3 idiots, Munnabhai MBBS, and its sequel, is directing Peekay. This upcoming bollywood movie is a satire on Godmen and Hindu Gods. This movie might stir controversy, as the subject is sensitive. It is said that Aamir Khan, who also co directing and producing this film along with Siddharth Roy Kapur, Raju Hirnai himself, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, under the banner Vinod Chopra Productions, plays the lead in this film.
This movie also stars Sanjay Dutt, Sushant Singh Rajput, Anuksha Sharma, and Boman Irani. Looks like Raju Hirani likes to repeat cast of his previous movies. Raju Hirani and Aamir Khan’s Jodi created an all time blockbuster, 3 idiots loosely based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel, Five Point Someone. In this movie, Aamir Khan dressed in a yellow lehenga and a grey blazer and white shirt, wearing a lipstick and carrying a tape recorder, is going to be seen asking questions on spirituality and god innocently yet carrying a deeper meaning.
Aamir Khan has chosen to release the first trailer of this film on the same day Salman Khan’s movie release, Kick. If this is intentional or strategic is not known. Aamir Khan and Salman Khan are known for their bromance as each have always shared their goodwill onscreen and off-screen. They have never shied away from promoting each other’s films. Salman Khan will probably promote Peekay movie along with Salman Khan Kick movie, given their deeper friendship.
This will be interesting as Kick movie is a remake with Salman Khan using an entirely different look for the film. Though this movie has generated the much-needed hype, for the songs, and the overall look of this film, it will be interesting to watch what iconic dialogues this movie will have. Peekay will be the much-awaited movie of this year. It is said to release during Christmas. It is said that Aamir Khan is superstitious about releasing his movies during Christmas as it brings him great success.
Peekay already landed in controversy when Aamir Khan donned the look of Lord Shiva and pulled a rickshaw carrying a woman wearing burqa. When they were shooting this scene in Delhi’s Chandini Chowk, they had to deal with legal issues. However, Raju Hirani denied all these rumours. This movie started its shooting schedule in Delhi as it is said that Raju Hirani wanted to shoot a few scenes in the cold weather of Delhi that seems ideal during the month of January. A few parts of the film are also shot in Belgium.
This movie is also called P.K, which are the two initials of the character of Aamir Khan in this movie. Anushka Sharma is seen in bobbed hair, unlike most of the glam roles in other movies. This movie can be anticipated to be a bigger blockbuster than any of the Salman Khan’s movies. Salman Khan is a people person and the common man enjoys his genre of films. Aamir Khan’s movies are more soulful.
