Each time Aamir Khan and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra have collaborated on a project, the film has worked wonders at the box office. Case in point being films like the 2009 release 3 Idiots and the 2014 release PK both of which went on to become box office benchmarks of their time. In fact looking at the actor’s box office record streak, most will consider Aamir as the king of the box office. However, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s views on the actor seem to be contrastingly different from popular opinion.
In fact at the recently held success bash of Dangal when the filmmaker was quizzed about Aamir Khan being the king of the box office, he said, “See I don’t think Aamir Khan is a king. He is not any type of king.” Though this might come across as quite a hard pill to swallow, the maverick filmmaker went on to reason his thoughts saying, “I think it is the story that really is the king. If Aamir Khan wasn’t part of this story (sic Dangal) and Hrithik Roshan was part of it, Dangal would have worked equally well at the box office. I think that it is the writer of the story and the director of the film that is really the king.”
