Aamir Khan, Indian Superstar, Ready for Japanese Remakes, Co-Productions

TOKYO – Indian superstar Aamir Khan arrived in Tokyo this week for the Japan premiere of “Dhoom: 3,” the highest-earning Indian film of all time, at the Tokyo International Film Festival.
 
Appearing with director Vijay Krishna Acharya at a media event, Khantold reporters that he is ready and willing to not only appear in a Japanese film, but co-produce or remake pics with Japanese partners. “If the right project comes along I want to do it,” said Khan, who also has numerous production credits.

Acharya said that “Dhoom: 3,” in which Khan’s hero robs a Chicago bank that ruined his circus owner father,  was not only action packed but had an “emotional element” that would appeal to Japanese audiences. What the film communicates, he added, “goes beyond language and country.”

Indian films are gaining traction at the Japanese box office following a concerted effort by Yash Raj Films in particular.

Khan, whose 2009 comedy “3 Idiots” was a hit in Japan as well as his native India, said he was happy to be recognized on the streets of Tokyo. “That’s when I knew (the film) had been accepted here,” he said.

“Dhoom: 3” will open in Japan on Dec. 5 as part of distributor Nikkatsu’s “Golden Asia” slate of popular and award-winning Asian films.
