Anything Aamir says is a compliment for Himesh ReshammiyaDecember 22nd, 2008 - 8:54 am ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Dec 22 (IANS) Many people felt that Aamir Khan’s remarks on Himesh Reshammiya’s marketing strategy and his trademark cap were sarcastic, but the musician-actor, who admits to being a fan of the star, chooses to take the seeming compliments on their face value.”If Aamir has spoken so well about me, I won’t even think of questioning it. I take his words as a big compliment. I’ve been hearing some terrific stories about his dedication from (director) John Matthew Mathan. I must say he’s very inspiring,” Reshammiya told IANS.
At a press conference Thursday, Aamir went out of his way to praise Reshammiya, calling him a master of marketing. “So much so that wherever and whenever I see a topi (cap) I think of Himesh,” said Aamir.
But many thought Aamir was being sarcastic by praising Reshammiya for his marketing strategy at a time when it (the strategy) seems to have collapsed. His “Karzzz”, a remake of 1980’s Rishi Kapoor starrer “Karz”, bombed despite all the publicity gimmicks.
“Or did Aamir praise Reshammiya because he is playing a role inspired by Aamir?” asked one of Aamir’s co-stars.
Reshammiyya is in Palanpur, Gujarat, busy shooting for Mathan’s new film “A New Love Ishtory”, in which he plays a big Aamir fan.
“I am a huge fan of Aamir Khan. And what a coincidence that I’m shooting for a film where I play a tapori who’s a big fan of Aamir. The role is inspired by Aamir’s ‘Rangeela’. In fact, my director is Mathan who directed him in ‘Sarfarosh’. Both of us just can’t stop talking about him,” Reshammiya said.
