Directorial Debut for Aamir
Aamir Khan makes his debut as director with Tare Zameen Par!
The film, says Mumbai Mirror, is a sensitive story of a child and his teacher and for the first time, Aamir Khan will feature as the official director in the credits. "When Aamir saw the rushes after a few weeks, he was not happy with the film and Amol Gupte's work," says a source from Aamir Khan Productions.
"Aamir bluntly expressed his displeasure. He lost faith in Amol as a director when he saw the rushes. He offered to return the script to Amol to choose another producer if he so wished. But Amol and Aamir had worked on it so long, that the former requested Aamir to take over the director's cap.
Aamir could not delay the shooting of the film beyond end of 2007 as the film's child protagonist, Darsheel Safary, would look grown up considerably and the production house would have had to look for another child star. Aamir believed that Darsheel was the perfect choice for the role and he therefore completed the film on time.
