PK has no resemblance to OMG-Oh My God: Raj Kumar Hirani

The soft-spoken RajkumarHirani, who is not known to lose his equanimity easily, is an angry man. He is upset with the volley of reports that have been appearing of late, aimed at ‘sabotaging’ his under-production film PK.

Especially damaging, say his friends, are the comparisons with the recent AkshayKunar-PareshRawalstarrer OMG-Oh My God, and the rumours that the similarities may have forced him to rewrite the script entirely, pushing back the schedule indefinitely.

A crewmember (on request of anonymity) told TOI, “Somebody is clearly out to sabotage PK. And that is simply because Hirani is a man of few words. PK has no resemblance to OMG-Oh My God, it is an entirely original film. Hirani took his time to write it and he is not a fool to put Kanji Virrudh Kanji on celluloid all over again and lay claims on a film based on it.”

Apparently Hirani was amused when the reports of the similarities first started trickling in. But then the rumours intensified, and he did not find it funny any more. Worse, some publications even reported that PK has been indefinitely postponed. “Hirani starts the film in December as planned after Aamir from his Talaash commitments,” says the source.

When contacted, Hirani confirmed that PK is on time. “I wanted to capture the winter in Delhi and that’s when we start shooting. We are very much on schedule,” he said, adding, “I am busy with recce of locations in Delhi. In fact, my second unit has already started shooting on schedule almost 15 days back.” The Munna Bhai director has also been scouting Rajasthan for locations. “All my energies are focused on the film. Nothing has changed, ” he concludes.

Saurav Ganguly is certainly not the kind who forgives or forgets easily. And being dropped from the KKR team is something he would probably hold against team owner Shah Rukh Khan for as long as he lives. Maybe that’s the reason, when he wanted to introduce his young friend from the Bengali film industry to an A-Lister, he chose Aamir over SRK. Buzz is, up and coming Bengali actor Hiran Chatterjee, who has been seeking Dada’s help to further his career, wanted some tips on how to break into the big league. And Dada promptly called up Aamir, who was on his way to Haj. We hear Hiron got to meet Aamir and even got a tip or two about stardom, marketing and of course acting. Guess Dada is still on the top of his game.

    RKH may be making entertaining movies….but all his movies have striking resemblance to each other…..and for 3IDOTS i feel it was more than 80% resembled to MUNNABHAI series with only medical field is exchanged wih engeneering….hope this time he provides something different…other wise i woud have to include him in bollywood’s HIGHLY overrated director’s list…along With RAKESH ROSHAN….whose all movies same @base….

    I have a interesting story about Karan Arjun
    Once I went to my friend’s house to play caramboard. Karan Arjun was playing in the TV. It was just beginning and when I saw salman and srk killed, I couldn’t stop myself from crying (sallu n srk were my favorite actors)…As soon as they died, I went back to my house (I didn’t know they will be reborn so I didn’t want to watch the movie)…I watched it only after few weeks after my friend told me that even though they die, they reborn and take revenge.
