Rani Mukerji, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
Aamir Khan, Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor were at the NDTV studios to talk about their new movie Talaash and answer questions from viewers on Your Call.
Sonia: On Your Call this evening we have the three stars India's been searching for this week. Rani Mukherji, Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan, thank you so much for being here tonight. Well before we go to what's going to happen this weekend, let us go back to where it all began. Let's have some glimpses of the best of Aamir, Kareena and Rani.
Rani when you look back at that what comes to your mind as another film is being released?
Sonia: Is it still as bad as the first film Gulaam?
Rani: I won't say bad. I think bad is a wrong word. I think it's just the angst, it's just the anxiety and the anxiousness that actually we feel and also the kind of reaction or the kind of reaction we actually looking for from an audience, because we work so hard for them and we want to make an impression on the audience and with our work. So it's always, like are they going to like our work, are they going to like the character, are they going to like the film? So I think these questions are just the same, any year you come out with the film.
Sonia: Every Friday is still the same?
Rani: Every Friday, yes.
Sonia: Kareena watching yourself, watching Aamir, watching Rani, what do you think about how the three of you have grown in these years and now in this film?
Kareena: Well, obviously I think all of us here are just die-heart fans, I think the huge fans of Aamir. Yes, of course, I think everyone knows that I'm the biggest fan of Aamir. And working with him in films like 3 Idiots and now Talaash, is like a dream come true.
Sonia: Because you must have watched Papa Kehte Hain when you were in school or college and now you are starring with him and starred with him in 3 Idiots as well.
Kareena: He has seen me on Karishma's sets.
Aamir: Andaaz Apna Apna.
Kareena: Andaaz Apna Apna. They are all actually Karishma's co-stars and I was obviously standing behind the camera hoping that, one day, oh! God, when will I get to romance with Aamir Khan. So in that case I am a lucky girl.
Sonia: Aamir there is this trend in Hindi cinema, you can grow older but the heroines get younger.
Aamir: Well, I'm not complaining.
Sonia: Aamir what drew you to Talaash?
Aamir: Wel,l like in most cases it was a story and when I heard the narration from Reema I was very fascinated, and I was sucked into the story as I was listening to it. And as the story progressed it was getting more and more intriguing for me and my suspicion was going on to various people, so it was very engrossing and engaging. But I also realised its very moving film as well and I found as the story progressed, towards the end of it I was in tears. And that's when I realised that here is a film which is not merely a suspense film, of course it is a suspense film, but along with that, on another layer, it's a film about coming to terms with loss. And that is something that each one of us goes through. All of us are close to people who we don't want to lose. It could be your husband, your wife, your parents, your siblings, your friends, your lover, and we don't want to lose someone who's close to us. But invariably either we have lost someone who is close to us. And we are wounded by that. Or in the future we will lose somebody who will be close to us. This is a fact of life and not many of us are able to come to terms with it well enough, and we are not able to grieve it and let it pass through us. So this is a film about coming to terms with loss. It's about that aspect of life as well, so I found it really wonderful and very moving and very intriguing and engaging as well.
Sonia: What remains of the Aamir we saw in the early years? The Aamir we saw with Rani in Gulaam, the Aamir we saw in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak?
Aamir: I feel I'm the same guy.
Sonia: Really? Is he the same, Rani?
Rani: Not at all, I think he's become more handsome now. Earlier he was a chocolate boy in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and I think women, girls all over the world just loved him and they all wanted to be Juhi Chawla at that point of time, so that he could mouth those dialogues to them. I was like one of them and I always looked into the mirror in the bathroom and I would say when would Aaamir say those lines to me and when would I tell him that mere paaon tale zameen nikal gayi?
Sonia: Then he said aati kya khandala?
Rani: And then he said aati kya khandala to me and I was like one of the luckiest teenagers that time. So yes, of course there has been a huge change. I feel as an admirer, as part of the audience who loves to watch an Aamir Khan film. I think he has grown from one performance to the other, strength to strength and each performance of his has left a mark on all of our hearts and his choice of roles, his choice of films has been tremendous.
Sonia: You said you are still the same, why do you think that?
Aamir: See I cannot see myself like you cannot see yourself. So within me I have been working in the same way. I have always been passionate about films, I still am. I have always given my hundred percent and I still do. Of course I have learnt along the way and I'm hoping grown better as an actor, more skillful as an actor. With experience I have gained a lot of things.
Sonia: Spontaneity is still there?
Aamir: Yes I think so. I hope so. In a sense, I'm still the same, in these last 24 years every time I give a shot, I'm searching for that magical moment, that sometimes happens, sometimes doesn't.
Sonia: But let's go across, because this is Your Call, we have got questions from across India. Let's go to questions first from Delhi, let's go to that.
Question1: You play a cop in this movie. Can you explain the fetish for Forces because Shahrukh plays an army officer in Jab Tak Jai Jaan and Salman is playing a cop in Dabaang 2, so can you explain this fetish for forces, all the super Khans playing men in uniform?
Question 2: I don't have to ask any question from you because I love the movies you do, they are blockbusters for me at least. But I just have a suggestion to make. Why don't you do movies with Shahrukh Khan, I think you both will look pretty well together?
Aamir: The first question was why are we playing cops or uniform people in our films. It's just a co-incidence, so that's a simple answer. The second question was what?
Sonia: I think about, one was about when are you going to act with Shahrukh?
Aamir: Well I would like to, that depends on a script coming up. I'm sure both of us will be happy to work together.
Sonia: Do you think any producer will be able to afford both of you together?
Aamir: Well I don't charge a fee so I'm sure it will be all right.
Sonia: Okay, if you produce the film then maybe?
Aamir: No, no. I'm serious I don't charge a fee.
Sonia: No I'm saying if you charge a fee then maybe you could get both of you together as well.
Aamir: Either way. I don't think Shahrukh and I are very fussy about our fees either way.
Sonia: Well of course you are playing a police inspector in this movie and I have the Delhi Police Commissioner, Mr Neeraj Kumar on the phone line for you. Mr Neeraj Kumar go ahead with your question for Aamir Khan, of course Kareena and Rani are also here, so you are welcome to ask them a question as well.
Neeraj Kumar: First of all my compliments, you play the role of police officer extremely well and you bring us glory. My question to you is I know in Talaash you are looking for a criminal for a murderer, but what is your talaash in life?
Aamir: Well that's a nice question. What I'm searching for in life I suppose is happiness, is peace, is joy, excitement, love from the people who I'm close to and time spent with people whom I'm close to, and safety and security of the people who are my close and loved ones. This is what I'm always looking for in my life.
Sonia: In fact Mr Kumar I just wanted to say, we have seen Aamir as a very, very fit police inspector, when are Delhi police force going to be fit as Aamir?
Neeraj Kumar: Well I believe you did not like our strictness and you took us to task last evening in your programme.
Sonia: But Mr Kumar do you think, also a question to Rani Mukherji who plays a policeman's wife, when you watch as a Police Commissioner, when you watch many, many roles of police inspectors being played on screen, what do you think? You think they do a good job of it or do you think if they could come and be in my shoes one day, then they know what is it all about?
Neeraj Kumar: No by and large I must say in Hindi movies, also in movies made in the South, police are projected very positively, they are projected as super heroes and sometimes they are made to look like buffoons, so I'm quite happy with the way the police men are portrayed. And I would like to ask one more question to Mr Aamir Khan, has he ever thought of doing something for the police martyrs, the families of the policemen who die in the line of duty?
Aamir Khan: Sure. No it's certainly something that I should be thinking of, all of us should be thinking of and I would certainly like to do something in this regard.
Neeraj Kumar: Thank you so much.
Sonia: Thank you so much Neeraj Kumar. Thanks for joining us tonight. That was great. But Aamir, in both of your roles, you have acted as a police officer in Sarfarosh before, what did you find interesting about being a policeman or what policeman actually do? Because often the image is pretty bad in India so what did you find interesting about it?
Aamir: The thing is that when I did Sarfarosh I did a lot of research and met a lot of cops, constables, inspectors, IPS officers, to understand what their lives are like and what they face. And when I actually began spending time with them I realised that we don't really know what they go through. We don't really have an understanding of the problems that they face. We only see the bad side of the things and we only accuse or point fingers and blame. But there are a lot of things that cops do which go unrecorded, unreported at least publicly. Because when they solve something we don't get to know about it. Only when something bad happens that's reported. So the good that they do is never reported, that's number one. Number 2 there are so many issues that they face, there are so many problems that they face. One of the things that I personally feel very strongly about is that police force should be separated from ...
Sonia: Transfers and politics?
Aamir: Yes, from politics. They have to be separated from politics because they have to be free to be able to do their job without any pressure, and that is something that we really need to think of as a policy, as for a long-term thing. Other than that just the amount of money that a policeman earns or constable earns I really feel that they should be paid more. If we want really high quality service from the police force then 2-3 things are very basic. One, we need to remove them from politics, two we need to pay them well so that they don't need to do anything under the table, they should never need to do that. And three we need enough of them. A city like Mumbai has got 50,000 policemen and it's so hugely populated. It's impossible to look after law and order or crime in such a big city with just 50,000 policemen, so the number of policemen need to increase. The funding for police stations, I did my research, I realized, every police station told me the money we get for petrol and stationary for the month doesn't even last us one week, so how do they run the police station? You'll be surprised one policemen told me that I don't like finding dead bodies which are unclaimed. I said why, its a very strange thing to hear. He said because when I find a body, which is not claimed, then I have to pay for everything. So I pay some Rs. 200-300 to the fishermen to go and get the body out of the water. Then I pay the doctor who does the postmortem. Then I pay for the last rites to bury or to burn the body, and all the money I have to spend from my pocket. He's a constable. So I said but you are not supposed to spend the money. What about your police station? He said nahi boss bolte hai tumko body mili tum paisa do. It's a shocking story.
Sonia: It's unbelievable.
Aamir: It's unbelievable. So I said how does a policeman operate then?
Sonia: No, I think Rani, you have played a policeman's wife and recently of course when you see the bravery of the 26/11, the policemen who died, what did you find about the families and the bravery really of the people who are around the policemen in a sense?
Rani: In a very objective way I would like to say that the wives or the women in the house are actually the strong ones. We actually think about the men being strong, but actually I think the strength that they get is from the wife .
Sonia: The widows of the police officers of 26/11 are amazing.
Rani: The kind of dignity they show in terms of when their husbands are in a job, their sons are in job. I think that is tremendous, because you really need to have a strengthened heart. Or you have to be really strong to be able to deal with like your husband or your son going every day out there, and being in a situation, which we, as normal citizens or normal people, would not like to be in situations like that. And they have to be right there in the middle of all that. So yes they have to have a really strong heart.
Sonia: We are going to go across to some other questions, now let's hear these questions from Hyderabad.
Question 1: My question is addressed to Kareena Kapoor. We hear that evolution of every actor is important, do you think, fearing success, many actors and actresses in the industry fail to try different genres of movies?
Question 2: My question is to Rani Mukherji, what motivated you to work in films like Aaiyaa and No One Killed Jessica?
Kareena: Well I think roles that are written for actresses also are quite limited. Now of course in the last couple of years I think they have improved. Earlier on in the '60's also I think there were pretty good roles. Then I think the '80's and the '90's actually corrupted the roles for actresses; is what I personally believe. But then of course I don't know if it's a right word to use the word 'risk', but right now I cannot think of anything else and at least I have not been afraid of taking risks.
Sonia: You have experimented with most of your movies?
Kareena: Refugee or Chameli or Dev. I don't think success or failure should be taken too seriously. Our job is to act and to just try to grab the best that is offered to us and choose the right roles
Sonia: Do you get disappointed when films like Heroine don't do we at the box-office, where you have invested a lot more in terms of your time, energy, in comparison to films where you are a heroine with a hero like maybe Aamir or Shah Rukh or Salman, so does that disappoint you in a different way?
Kareena: I don't know if it disappoints me but the fact is I just wanted to do it. It's basically what you really want to do at the end of the day. I don't think we can hide behind the curtain constantly saying I should just do this kind of a movie because yeh toh masala film hai, this will definitely do well. I mean of course I have to do that also, but I also enjoy doing performance oriented roles and I wanted to work with Madhur so no matter what. I'm still proud of all my films whether they are 3 Idiots or Heroine. It's all part of my filmography.
Sonia: Rani why did you choose films like Aiyaa, No One Killed Jessica, which are different films in a sense? Is it because the truth is that often depends on the kind of movies that are offered to heroines? Often flavor of the month or the flavor of the year and the directors will go there, and often the choice gets narrower at certain times.
Rani: That's also one aspect. And the other aspect is that I always try to do something that has always made me really want to do a particular role, in terms of if I'm excited as an actor to take up a particular role which challenges me enough, because after working for so many years I think always, like my talaash is to find a good role or a good script, because I would get bored with myself trying to play similar roles in my movies. So I think because of that streak in me I would like to do something as exciting or different. And both Aiyaa and No One Killed Jessica and also Talaash. I think if you see all the three films and if you put all the three different characters of mine, you'll see all looking different and they are something that have got me excited as an actor and I would like to be part of films like that. So when I do Black and Yuva or a Hey Ram, I think what really excites me is the role and also the challenge that comes with the roles of being real, and of being one of the girls who would relate to modern Indian women.
Sonia: Though the Hindi film industry is much nicer to the heroes than heroines, it's always like heroines have a shelf life, but the hero doesn't. I told Aamir that you get older but your heroines get younger. That doesn't happen the other way round.
Rani: It does. I did work with Shahid who's younger to me. I did work with Prithvi in my last film who's again younger than me.
Sonia: Kareena do you think that's true, what I just said?
Kareena: I think you are as old as you look, male or female it has to be that way. I mean it's working for the males like that. So let's put it that it works for the females also now, that's what I can hope for.
Sonia: Let's go across to Bangalore from where we have got our next set of questions.
Question 1 : From where did you get the inspiration of starting a great venture Satyamev Jayetey? And we also heard you did all the research for Satyamev Jayatey, so how did that make an impact on your personal life?
Question 2: Many awareness campaigns come and die, how do you plan to keep the impact of Satyamev Jayatey alive in the minds of the people?
Sonia: Satyamev Jayatey, of course the recent sad incident where one young man who was supposed to appear on your show was killed. Do you think the impact, I mean Time Magazine has described you an actor who can change the nation, are you happy with the impact it had 6 months down the line?
Aamir: Yes, I think the show had a huge impact. I think it went beyond what our expectations were. Me and my team hoping, that this, the kind of response, it would happen and I think it went beyond that. It really struck a chord across the country and with people, urban, rural, everywhere. So I'm really happy the way the show was received. Why did I do the show? I guess because I just felt like doing it. It was something that was playing in my mind from a while, and I just felt that I'm fortunate enough to be in a position I liked to make good use of it and I liked to make good use of myself on a strong platform like television, and see if we can use that in any good way, it's been a huge learning experience for me, and I think one of the biggest learning's for me through the show is that as a society, when of my biggest realizations is as a society, if we really want things to change in a very dramatic manner, then one of the root causes, which is responsible for a lot of problems in society, is our attitude towards women, and our attitude towards the girl child. We are a very patriarchal society, and right from the time when a child is conceived, a lot of us decide not to have a girl child. So first we want to kill a girl child. If we don't want to kill a girl child and allow them to be born, then we don't feed it as much as we feed the boy child, we don't educate it as much as we educate a boy child. We don't spend as much on medical expenditures on the girl child. So on every level we are unfair to the girl and then we don't want her to take decisions by herself. We want to decide for her who she should marry, what she should study, what time she should return home, so this kind of thinking, if we want our country to really progress and do well, we have to allow the women to be empowered and to be as strong as she actually is. And unless we do that we will not be the super power as we dream of being. We will never be able to reach there because in every family it's the woman who is the center of the family. The nucleus of the family is woman. If she is not strong mentally, physically and emotionally, the family is not going to be strong, and if a family is not strong the nation is not going to be strong.
Sonia: And you are flanked by two strong women sitting by your side. Well just to say Aamir I think what interested so many, because of course you had journalists reporting about this, you had politicians talking, was that a star or an actor actually put his star power where it really mattered behind issues like this, and now also the Ambassador to fight malnutrition in India. Kareena, Rani, when someone, like Aamir Khan does that, many say often that actors, actresses are a selfish lot. They stay in their own bubble and Bollywood is their world. Do you think others should break out of that world perhaps, and look at the rest of India? What do you think? People will go, this Aamir and he'll do that, but it's not for us, what do you think, Kareena?
Kareena: I think it's an individual decision and it's absolutely amazing that someone like Aamir, because he has that voice like you said, Time Magazine said he's an actor that can change the nation and people of our nation have shown him that. So I'm glad that he has done that. But obviously it's a very personal and a very individual decision. You have to believe in what you do so that's something that's each ones beliefs, so I wouldn't want to talk on anyone else behalf.
Sonia: Why do most actors stay away from issues like politics? I mean there's a lot of criticism that sometimes actors try to go to certain politicians because their moves are releasing, or they are fearful, often the actors feel they're soft targets. Do you think that's true, because often because you are a star you get targeted as well?
Aamir: Well movies are soft targets because the shelf life of the movie is very short. If in the release week you disrupt the screening of the film and people can't go to see it or you create fear in the peoples mind, like if you go to see this film there will be attacks etc, you can damage the film irreparably. So yes, films are soft targets. And yes, they are often used by political parties to leverage their own agendas and various issues that they want to throw forward. That's unfortunate. It's really unfortunate that happens. But I guess in life sometimes you are faced with unfortunate things and you have to deal with it the best you can.
Sonia: Here actors stay away from politics completely. When you see President Obama's campaign they are very clear, actors will make their choices clear, this is who we think is good for the country. Here actors tend to stay away from politics.
Aamir: Can I just say something on that; we have to understand that if you are comparing actors in America, who come forward and speak about their support to political parties, you also have to understand one more thing. In America political parties have agendas. I don't see any political party telling me what to do when they win an election, so there is no debate over here. Why should I vote for a particular person? So first of all I think in India we need to really re-think about our political scenario, what is a person, why does he want to be in power? What does he have in mind that when I come into power this is what I'm going to do for healthcare, I'm going to concentrate on healthcare. I would like to concentrate on education, whatever my issues are. This is where I want to concentrate on and this is how I'm going to solve the problem. This is the problem I see and these are the three things I'm going to do to sort this out. If I can hear that then I can decide whom to support.
Sonia: You supported Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal, so now are you supporting the Aam Aadmi Party?
Aamir: No, I actually never supported Arvind or Mr Hazare. I was actually supporting the concept that India should have a strong law against corruption. That is what I was supporting. It doesn't matter who was asking for it and along with me. I was not the only one supporting them, there were thousands of Indians who wanted that and still do, and all of us still want a strong law against corruption and we are hoping that happens. We are waiting for that. We are looking to our politicians who we have elected to make sure they come out with a law, which is strong against corruption, and this is what we expect of them.
Sonia: Politicians are often the villains nowadays, so maybe they need to wake up and politicians should see that's the popular stereotype nowadays. But let's just go across to the questions from Mumbai. Let's just hear what they have to ask.
Question 1: Hi Aamir, I'm Chinnoy. This is about the Bulandshahr case. You worked very closely on it and you have done a lot for it, so I just wanted to know what more do you want to do and also what do you expect would come out of it?
Aamir: I want to say when we heard of Abdul being murdered it was extremely disturbing for all of us, and since that day I have been thinking often. This thought keeps coming back to me, that I wish we included his story, because maybe if we had included the story, then the people who have done this might have hesitated before doing something like this, because then it would have been out in the public eye. They may have not taken this step, so that thought keeps coming back to me but I guess we would never know. Its hypothetical thinking now but what has happened is extremely sad and very, very tragic and this is why we have done this show. The whole purpose of doing this show on that topic was that we felt this is something that's been happening, and we would like it to stop and we would like to sensitize people towards this issue. What I have done on that is I have spoken to lot of officials and people who I believe can help in this matter. And I have been assured by the police that people who are responsible for this killing will be brought to book and will be arrested, and criminal proceedings will be taken against them, and that Mehbiz will be provided protection. I believe she has been provided protection since then.
Sonia: Actually let's throw open some questions from the audience now, who have been waiting to ask questions.
Question: Sir I have a question. Just now you said that the police is enquiring and will take some action against what happened in Bulandshahr. Don't you think if you fight an election, obviously you will win, because you have the support from the citizens of India, I mean across the world and everywhere? Then you will get power in your hand and you can utilize it and do it for a good cause, what do you like to say on that?
Aamir: Well I don't think politics is for me and you have to be happy in what you are doing. I'm very happy in the space that I'm in, of an entertainer, and I think I'm able to contribute a lot to a society from where I am. I'm not sure I'll be as effective as a politician, because I'm not a politician, that's not me and it's not about me winning one election, it's about being in a position of strength. You have to have a political party, you have to win a majority of seats in the Lok Sabha before you can actually form a government, and all of that is just beyond my capabilities I believe. But what I want to say is I can contribute a lot from where I am, and with my work as an actor, and I believe the responsibility of an entertainer doesn't stop merely at entertaining people. I believe that contribution of a entertainer to society is to bring grace to society, is to be in the social fabric of a society, it's to make people think about things, question things, shed light on matters, hopefully bring values to people's lives. So these are the responsibilities and this is a big responsibility and I think that all of us can contribute in a big way in that.
Sonia: Okay, some good questions for Kareena and Rani, can we just have a look. Let's just hear those.
Question 1: Hi, this question is for Kareena. Do you think that after marriages, especially for actresses, the career declines? So do you think that will happen to you as well?
Question 2: Hi this question is for Kareena and Rani both. How does it feel to work with all the Khans in the industry?
Sonia: And of course married to a Khan also.
Aamir: See this is the thinking that I'm talking about. It's a very patriarchal thinking that when a girl gets married it's all over for her. It makes me sad to hear a question like this, and that's a young boy who's asking this question. I mean it's a silly question.
Sonia: I have to say in media women get paid the same. Why don't Bollywood actresses get paid the same as Bollywood actors? Kareena, do you agree with me?
Rani: I'm all there with you Sonia right now.
Kareena: The society has to change the way they think before.
Aamir: I have a very good answer to that actually. In films the fact of the matter is your fee is connected to your ability to fill the theater. Now yes, heroines work very hard but so do cameramen, so do the light boys on the set. All of us should be paid equally.
Sonia: Aamir you are comparing the heroine with a light boy.
Aamir: No I'm comparing the heroine and the light boy and myself. I'm not saying heroine and the light boy. I'm saying all of us are working hard. I'm working hard so is the light boy, why is he paid differently from me. It's not because he's a man or woman. You are confusing the issue there. The reason why you are paid differently in cinema is because the market forces understand that you are able to bring that much money back into the film. So if I'm paid Rs 10 because I can bring back that money and more if I'm paid Rs 5. If Rani can fill in more seats than I can, one hundred and one percent she will be paid more than me. The market forces will make sure that she gets paid more than I do. So it's got nothing to do with your sex as male or female. It's your ability to pull people in. There was a time when Salim Javed were the highest paid people, they used to get paid more than the actors, they pulled the crowd in.
Sonia: Do you agree, Kareena, Rani?
Rani: Yes, I absolutely agree because I think this is the only logic actually.
Aamir: In cinema this is the only logic. This is one field where corruption doesn't work. I cannot bribe the audience and say come and see my film, I'll give you money.
Sonia: It doesn't matter who your dad is.
Aamir: It doesn't matter who recommends you. I can recommend to you anything. So this is one field where recommendations don't work, where connections don't work, where bribing doesn't work. It either works or doesn't work and you have no control over it. I can't bribe my way to success. I can't get someone to recommend me and I'll be successful. None of these works and there have been a lot of cases of women who have been very big stars, not only in India, but even abroad and they are paid much higher than other male actors, so the money you get paid is only related unfortunately to market forces.
Sonia: I have someone else to ask you a question, I think he may be a surprise, let's see who's next to ask a question, you have to look here Aamir, this way.
Puppet: Yeh meri film ka promotion hai. Talaash ka dark ni hona chahiye, fade it down. Fade it down please. Ab badhiya hai. Arey yaar kuch bhi nahi hai theek. I have been searching for many weeks, kahin nahi mil raha hai kuch bhi khaas jiski hai mujhe talaash. jitni bhi release scripts, directors, even makeup artists, sab hai baskwaas.

Taliyan, friends mein bas itna bolna chahta hun ki 'Your Call' pe ek Aamir ki talaash mein do do Aamir saamne aate hai lekin jab do do Aamir saamne aate hai toh kya aap uske liye tyaar hai.
Sonia: Not bad.
Aamir: Gustaki Maaf. I really enjoy Gustaki Maaf. I always watch it and this is the first time I'm seeing a puppet of me.
Sonia: So, we are at the end of the show so I just want to play a montage before we go let's just have a look at that.
One thing I would like to ask just after watching the songs and camaraderie. How was it for the three of you together, because again, maybe as outside views say that actors and actresses can never be friends, is that true? I mean two actors can't be friends and two actresses can't be friends?
Aamir: No, no. That's not true. I'm friendly with a lot of actors and it was fun working with both of them, with Kareena and Rani.
Sonia: I'm not saying actresses, but with actors.
Aamir: No, with actors. Anil is a close friend. Jackie is a close friend, Salman, so many actors I'm really friendly and close to.
Sonia: Kareena is it possible for two actresses to be friends?
Kareena: I think that two actors or actresses who respect each other. I think they can be friends, like Rani and me. We shot together a decade ago in Mujhse Dosti Karoge and ever since first time I saw her it's just been wonderful, ever since first time we met on the sets.
Sonia: Thank you very much for coming. I can imagine after endless promotions how tough it must be. Thank you all for being such great sports, thank you very much, a big thank you to them.
