Superstars consciously keep away from working with me: Vishal Bhardwaj

Mumbai: If you have ever wondered why Vishal Bhardwaj hasn’t directed any of our Bollywood superstars, it is because they consciously keep away from the Haider director.

Talking to Dainik Bhaskar at MAMI, Vishal said, “They consciously keep away from me. Ask them why they don’t work with me.”

When asked if he is talking about the Khans, Vishal said, “I want to work with them; I approached them. If there would have been some response, then they would have been in some films of mine. They aren’t there yet.”

Vishal doesn’t remember what film he had offered the superstars, “I don’t remember what I had offered. I want to work with them and they also want to work with me. It has to be mutual thing, there has to be a subject that would suit both me as a director and them (superstars).”

Vishal, however, feels stars are taking risks these days by doing different kind of films. “They are taking risks today. It is good. Aamir Khan is the only daring actor. He transformed amazingly for Dangal. He admits and acknowledges his age and works accordingly.”
