Kathryn Bigelow "Zero Dark Thirty" has impressed Indian actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan so much that he describes the Oscar winning director as "a brave woman".
"She is a very brave woman to have made a film on such a politically sensitive and controversial topic. Not many people (even male filmmakers) would have the courage and conviction to do so," Aamir said in a statement.
"Zero Dark Thirty" chronicles the decade-long hunt for Al Qaeda leader Osama after the September 2001 attacks and his death at the hands of the Navy SEAL Team 6 in Abbotabad, near Pakistan capital Islamabad, in May 2011.
Aamir admits she deserved to be nominated for the best director Oscar, but added: "I am a great admirer of Katheryn Bigelow's work and feel that any filmmaker or director who is true to his/her craft should not take seriously the validation they do or don't receive from any award committee and jury."
Aamir himself tries to stay away from award shows.
"Fact is that I have no objections to film awards per se. I just feel that if I don't value a particular film award, then I won't attend it either. Apart from the national award, I don't see any other award ceremony that I should give value to. My personal experience about these award ceremonies is that I don't trust them. I have no faith in them so I would prefer to stay away," he said.
