Aamir Khan is gearing up for the release of his much-anticipated film Dhoom 3 and trade pundits have predicted that the film will set new records at the box-office. However, Mr. Perfectionist claims that box-office numbers don't matter to him.
At a recently held event when Khan was asked if he feels that his upcoming next will break the records set by Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express, the superstar said, "I have no such expectations nor am I thinking about that. What is most important to me is that when the audience buys the ticket, I just want them to have the greatest time that they have ever had and I just want them to love the film and that's what I'm concerned about."
"I don't think the audience is interested in numbers and neither am I. When I look at the films that I love like Mughal-e-Azam, and Pyaasa, I have absolutely no idea what their earnings were and it doesn't matter to me. What matters to me is the way those films touched me, the kind of emotions they evoked in me and that's what stays with us. Films are not about numbers, films are about stories, emotions, characters and that's how I like to look at it," he further added.
Aamir will play the antagonist in Dhoom 3, which is slated to release on December 20, this year.
