It's difficult to recreate same emotion in remake: Aamir

Mumbai, Sep 5

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who played the lead in the Hindi remake of Tamil hit "Ghajini", says it's difficult to retain the emotion of an original film in its remake.

"It's difficult to remake because the original things are made with such emotion that it becomes difficult to recreate the same emotion. When you come to compare it, a remake can never meet the level of its original version. But there is always an excitement of an artiste," said Aamir.

The 45-year-old actor said his 1991 hit "Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin" was an adaptation of a Hollywood film "It Happened One Night" (1934).

"I worked in a remake of 'Ghajini'. It was originally made in Tamil, which we remade in Hindi, but it was not an old film. In 1934, Hollywood director Frank Capra had made 'It Happened One Night'. I read the script from collections of screenplays and I liked it so much that we adapted it and remade 'Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin'," said the actor.

Aamir was speaking to reporters Saturday night at PVR Phoenix Mill, where he attended the screening of Shammi Kapoor starrer "Teesri Manzil" as part of the Purani Jeans Film Festival organised by Radio Mirchi.

The actor maintains if he ever go for a remake again, it will be for the sake of re-living moments of the film that excite him.

"Every one has their own reasons to remake a film, but if I ever make a remake then the reason would the material, the story, the characters, the moments of that film excite me so much that I want to experience them personally as a creative person and if possible then would interpret in my own way.

"Like Shakespeare plays if you see, it's still performed. Different groups make their independent adaptation of his plays. I think when we try to remake one, we pay respect to that creation like a tribute," said Aamir.
