Aamir Khan says that film in­dus­try needs fresh writ­ers

Asian Journal - - WORLD -

Ac­tor-pro­ducer Aamir Khan feels the Hindi in­dus­try needs to pay more to writ­ers, who are a fun­da­men­tal part of the moviemak­ing process. Aamir at­tended the grand fi­nale of Cines­taan In­dia’s Sto­ry­teller Script Con­test 2018, and said such com­pe­ti­tions could bring out more tal­ent. He was joined by writ­ers Juhi Chaturvedi and An­jum Ra­ja­bali on Mon­day. “I felt re­ally happy when I came to know that An­jum (Ra­ja­bali) is very keen to or­gan­ise the screen­writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion be­cause In­dia is a huge coun­try. There are peo­ple who want to tell dif­fer­ent kind of sto­ries but they don’t get the op­por­tu­nity, so it’s a good plat­form where peo­ple can send their sto­ries,” the PK ac­tor said.

“The film in­dus­try also needs com­pe­ti­tions like these as we need fresh writ­ers with dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives so, when An­jum in­vited me, Juhi (Chaturvedi) and Ra­juji (Hi­rani). We thought it is a re­ally nice at­tempt and we should sup­port it,” the ac­tor said.
