Oscars can’t tell me whether my film is good or bad: Aamir

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who doesn’t attend any of the popular Indian award ceremonies, says that the Academy Awards is just an opportunity to get more audience to watch the film.

“For me, the Oscars is a window from which your audience increases…I see it in that way only. Oscars can’t tell me whether my film is good or bad and I am not interested in that. My interest with Oscars is that it’s an opportunity for a film to get a larger window to a larger audience,” Aamir said

“Audience are unaware of your film, but if you manage to get nominated then there is a whole world out there who wants to see your film, who otherwise would not have known about your film. It’s an opportunity to get your film viewed by more people.”

Aamir, who has just delivered the biggest grosser of all time in Dhoom 3, also said that he would only want to know if his film is good or bad from his audience.

“Whether the film is good or bad, this I want to hear form the audience and not from anyone else”

Aamir’s home-production Lagaan was one of only 3 films to receive an Oscar nomination.



  • I am laughing at these comments….aamir thinks that its because of his star power that Dhoom 3 got nice collections….he is over the moon it seems…people are bashing the movoe everywhere amd making fun of the scenes mainly the auto scene and all…its because of the huge number of screens,hiked ticket rate & dhoom brand…..be grounded aamir

  • Lootera should have been sent to oscar.
    It is 10 times better than revenge 3 aka d3.
    K3 is 7 times better than d3.

  • Aamir does not give importance to awards but “Lagaan” making it in final top 5 movie in foreign category for Oscars was one of the biggest achievement in the history of Indian cinema and many filmmakers of Hollywood and people of west saw any Bollywood movie for the first time.

  • Aamir wants to know from the audience whether his films r good or bad so as a audience i must say that the last bad film which Aamir did was “Mela” which was 13 years ago while all others films were good and some were very good and some were outstanding like “Lagaan” and “3 idiots” in these 13 years.

  • Aamir is completely right, don’t care about oscars but within in India the awards are become joke.
    nevertheless who ever got awards its definitely help to boost his/her confidence and give them a compliment for their work.

  • Indian movie awards are worthless, everyone gets an award. SRK has like 140 awards or so, pathetic.

    National awards mean something, apart from when they are, due to corruption, given to the likes of Saif (his mother was in the jury, lol).

  • aamir wants to know audience response,then why he hike price of dhoom3.i am not able to see the movie due to that huze price.

  • @sakhi The auto scene of “Dhoom 3” was much better that “CE” scenes.At least Abhishek has his own auto,bike and pistol as his weapon whereas Srk used others bike and jeep to runaway and also he use to search roadside objects for fighing with goons like coconuts,toys,knifes and other things from roadside shops.lol

  • Kahaani or Paan Singh Tomar should have been sent to oscars last year…
    Though Barfi was good but the above mentioned films were ultimate..

  • Everyone believe in awards be it big b , dilip saab or srk but amir not if amir not believe in awards then why cant same with OSCARS and go there @ lagaan time…No offence to amir but AWARDS ARE NOT JOKE…

    That’s make him different with any actor of Bollywood. Proud to be An Aamirian

  • Aamir is the finest actor and even Srgay accepted that.
    There are only three official film entries to oscar which are-
    1.Mother India
    2.Salaam Bombay
    If you still have doubt then check following link- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Indian_submissions_for_the_Academy_Award_for_Best_Foreign_Language_Film
    Devdaas was not nominee,it was just in the race!
    Such foolish srgay lovers!
    They don’t know the facts!
    And the people who are saying Dhoom 3 is gaining success bcoz of Dhoom brand check ghajani,3 idiots records!
    And by the way,Aamir don’t like such records,he just explore him as actor!
    His best films from jjws_-
    1.Jo jeeta wahi sikandar
    3.Dil chahtaa hain
    5.Magal Pandey
    7.Rang de basanti
    8.Taare zameen par
    11.3 idiots
    Of these 3 films ,i.e. Lagaan, RDB and TZP were in the race of oscar and Lagaan was nominee!
    Think before hating Aamir!

  • @kabir if you don’t have money to watch d3 its your problem dude, i don’t know who is you fav actor but feeling sorry because in this year apart from Salman’s jai Ho every big movie released with hiked prices so unfortunately you won’t see any movies this year unless your income will increase.

  • Don 2 was “brand” movie that released during Christmas Holidays in year 2011.
    Worldwide Gross of Don 2 was 205 cr.
    It was 193 cr less than the then record holder 3 Idiots(398 cr).

    If brand is the factor, imagine Don 2 collection without Brand association!

    Moral of the story- Even with’ brand’ association, you need a champion megastar like Aamir to break records by huge margin.
    SRK ,Salman,Hrithik …everyone has worked in brand movies but no one was able to break any record.

  • Only for Imax,ticket price was 800 to 900 and the film was on imax for only one weak!
    Other prices for d3 were between Rs.40 to 250 aprox. which are same for ce!

  • Well said Aamirkhan. You did well and most people enjoys your film and they like ur films due to the way you ar doing it. Aamirkhan you are so briliant and a comfidence Actor, So we people call you You The MR~PERFECTIONALIST. Finally Aamir try as much as possible to do pray so that Allah will saves you from your enemy

  • Now whatever Amir says their fans completely agree it. Sour grapes. For winning award person need to do good acting. Whoever got filmfare they deserved. Whether srk for bazigar nana for krantiveer sanju for vastav hritik for kmg or ranbeer for barfee. They really did best acting. Filmfare is best while giving awards to lead actor and actress.

  • @sachin11 strange you missed Tzp for me its best Aamir film because he produced it,directed it and also given great execution to the story and despite having a clash this collected big money,got appreciation and recognition,as per Imdb its rated best movie from bollywood having spot on 163no. @akash agree with you but you missed Hr broke record of Gadar with D2.

  • Desh pan de u mentioned almost all Amir khan movies including mangel pan de, fanaa, ta laash, gajini, dhobi etc. can u add few more those also classics according some Amir fans. Maan mela Dil ishq
