Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who was last seen in the film Thugs of Hindostan, also featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, is gearing up for his next project. Aamir is looking forward to the release of his production venture titled 'Rubaru Roshni', has said his forthcoming film is very introspective in its nature.
Aamir Khan was interacting with the media at the special screening of 'Rubaru Roshni' along with film's director Svati Chakravarty on Thursday in Mumbai.
'Rubaru Roshni' revolves around the virtue of forgiveness. The film talks about Khalistan movement which was at its peak during 1984 and terrorist attack on Mumbai on November 2008.
Talking about how he decided to produce 'Rubaru Roshni', Khan said, "When Svati (Svati Chakravarty) told me that I want to make a film on forgiveness, I said 'I am on, and that 'we are producing it and you make it.' That time, we didn't know in which medium we will show it to the audience.
"I had no idea about whether we are going to release it theatrically or on digital platform, but I told Svati that 'you must make this film' and when it will be ready then, we will think of the medium."
Khan said 'Rubaru Roshni' is very introspective in its nature. "When I saw the first cut of the film, it impacted me a lot and the first thought that came to my mind was that we hold grudge against someone over petty issues and in that situation, we hurt ourselves.
"In this film, we have shown people who have faced larger tragedies in their lives, but have been able to overcome them. It made me think about myself and all my relationships with people so, I found this film as very introspective in its nature."
Did he have any doubts before coming onboard for the film because the film shows some major political and terrorism related events? "I think what the film is saying is much larger than any one event. It talks about the healing power of forgiveness. I feel the biggest thing is to forgive someone who has hurt you or upset you," said Khan.
Talking about the title of the film, he said, "Yes, there is a Song in Rang De Basanti named 'Roobaroo Roshini' and that's not the reason we've kept the name of the film this. The theme of the very well goes with the word 'Rubaru Roshini' thus we've kept this as the name of the movie."
He made it clear that makers of the film haven't made any sort of commentary on political events.
'Rubaru Roshni' is produced by Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao under the banner of Aamir Khan Productions. It is directed by Svati Chakravarty.
Rubaru Roshni will premiere on Star network's all channels on Republic Day at 11 am.
