Producer's Note, Delhi Belly.   
May,08,2011
 


Delhi Belly happened quite by accident... and thanks to Kiran.

Shit happens.

Akshat the writer had been trying to reach me with no success (don't ask me why since I am the easiest guy to reach). Finally, after giving up he dropped off a copy of the script at my house with my maid!!! Not a wise move as she is not the reading type. Well, somehow it managed to make its way to a heap of unread scripts lying in my study.

Shit happens.

One day I was busy with some email and Kiran, while waiting for me to finish, picked up the script lying on top of the pile of unread scripts. Couple of minutes later I heard her giggling, then laughing, then falling off the sofa choking with laughter and rolling on the ground. We were supposed to go out somewhere but she refused to stop reading. We stayed back home and ninety minutes later I was reading it. Three hours later I was calling the LA number written on the first page of the script and asking for Jim Furgele and Akshat Verma. Forty-eight hours later Akshat and Jim were sitting in front of me playing hard ball.

Shit happens.

Abhinay Deo, very ably leading a super cast and crew has delivered pretty much what Kiran and I were laughing our heads off about. I'd like to make a special mention of Ram who has in my opinion created kick ass music and contributed a hell of a lot to the film. With path breaking and inspired work he has created an album which I feel people will want to own. Akshat is a most welcome addition to our industry, and Jim... well, shit happens...

Aamir Khan Productions is known for its inspiring, clean, family entertainment. All that is about to change! Delhi Belly has the potential of, in a single stroke, destroying all the goodwill we have built in the last ten years.

Shit happens!

And if that happens, I will do to Abhinay, Akshat and Jim what Cowboy does to Vlidimir in our film while helping him clear his mind.

And that is when all the shit that has happened so far... will hit the fan!!!

I saw your video on youtube, an interview shooted after your underground Task during 3 Idiots premier release, was great way to understand the ground realities and your customers. I am inspired by your way of handling and answering the people (industry people). your focus on work inspires me. I would like to tell you that i have learned great things from you. Thanks.

Ravindra.

Aamir can I please comment that I saw DB today and I thought that it was a brilliant satire including the song at the end.. however, as you yourself predict, not a lot of people will see the movie for what it is and will see it for what it is merely showing on top.. if you know what I mean.. my mother for one has given up and said.. I did not expect this from Aamir.. as you so rightly predicted.. but for what its worth.. its brilliant satire (once again )
