Khan: Hollywood producers don’t add any value to Indian films
Aamir Khan is on the jury of the Berlin International Film Festival here. And he is in tears. Not because of jury duties, but because he is battling the cold and wind while being mobbed by fans on Potsdamer Platz, the festival hub.
“˜Ganz schnell!’ (quickly), the fans scream to friends who are clicking their pictures with Aamir Khan. Khan spoke to DNA in Berlin. Excerpts from the interview:
What is the experience of being on the prestigious international jury of the Berlin Film Festival like?
Berlin Film Festival director Dieter Kosslick had invited me on the international jury two years ago. I had heard so much about the festival, so I’m glad I could finally be here.
Berlin had shown my Peepli Live last year. I am very impressed by the jury. They say what they mean when discussing films and often have a very different viewpoint on the same film, that is a revelation to me.
