I apologize if PK has hurt people’s sentiments, Aamir Khan


<PK>Perfectionist Aamir Khan’s last release ‘PK’ was a worldwide hit. The film turned out to be the highest grosser of the year but despite all the success and accolades, Aamir Khan is apologetic if ‘PK’ has hurt anyone’s sentiments. If we turn back the pages, we will remember that ‘PK’ has invited nationwide protest and the film claimed to hurt religious sentiments.

At the ‘PK’ DVD launch, Aamir, 49 said. "The film has been loved by the majority. Personally I want to say I feel bad if I hurt a single person... that was not my intention at all. What we wanted to tell we told that because it was an important point. But I want to apologise if I hurt people," Aamir said at the DVD launch of PK.

Aamir Khan is highly delighted with ‘PK’ success, "Yes, we never expected this business. When we make a film with such effort and hard work and when people connect to the film emotionally you feel so good and fulfilled," he said.

"Roughly the net collection in India is around Rs 340 crore and overseas is Rs 170 crore. So the net business is over Rs 500 crore and the gross may be Rs 600-650 crore," Aamir added.

The film's producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani present at the event also felt emotional.

"We are actually pushing our limits, with every film we do we try to make new grounds. We almost spent almost five years to make this film and another six-seven months in the editing room perfecting every scene. This DVD is very precious," Chopra said.

Hirani said that the DVD is a treat for fans as several deleted scenes are included in the DVD. "This is the first time that I had deleted scenes in a film. Now when we watch them (deleted scenes) we realised those scenes were funny but because of the length we could not include it," Hirani said.

‘PK’ stars Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Sanjay Dutt and Boman Irani.
