Trivia




Aamir Khan got nude for the first time in his career for this film.
Cricketing ace, Sachin Tendulkar who watched this film days before the movie was released for public was literally stunned after watching the performance of Aamir. He recommended every one to watch this movie which he hasn't ever done in his cricketing career at least for a Bollywood movie.


Movie's satellite rights were sold for a whopping 85 crs. with a promise that the movie will earn atleast 300 crs. nett domestically. This is the highest satellite amount for any Bollywood film.


Aamir Khan has planned a special screening of the film for Sanjay Dutt in jail.


In 2011, in its initial scripting stage, Rajkumar Hirani named the film 'Talli' then changed it to 'Ek Tha Talli' which he actually loved it but later on came to know that 'Ek Tha Tiger' was already in production which was released in 2012. So he dropped the idea and after many titles, he came up with a unique title which only had initials, 'P.K'.


Costumes worn by aamir khan in the movie are actually collected randomly from the public


The movie will be released on 6000 screens in India and Worldwide combined making it the biggest Bollywood release ever.


There are plans to make sequel for the movie.


Filmmakers recovered their investment of Rs.85 crore through promotion and sale of distribution rights for Rs.145 crore even before the release of the film.


The scene where Amir Khan pulls out the barber's pajama tuck in between his butt cheek took almost 12 takes to conclude.


PK is the first film of Aamir Khan and Sanjay Dutt together,in 90s they were supposed to do Sahabzaade 1992 but Aamir left the film and the role went to Aditya Pancholi.


Aamir Khan played nine different avatars and during the course of the film, the actor had to eat over 1000 paans. "In real life paan is not a habit, I have it once in a while but for this film I chew paan for every scene. I would at times eat about 100 paans in a day. We had a paanwala on the sets," said Aamir Khan in the report. Apparently, for every take, Aamir had to eat a fresh paan to fill his mouth, also before beginning the shoot Aamir would eat at least 10-15 paans to get the right color inside his mouth and on his lips.


Junaid Khan, son of Aamir Khan worked as an assistant director in this film.


Sanjay Dutt had to complete the schedule of this film in given period of time by Bombay high court as he was found guilty in 1993 Bombay Blast case.


The director (RajKumar Hirani) is working with Aamir for the 2nd time after 3 Idiots and with Sanjay Dutt for the 3rd time after 2 Munna bhai films.


Anushka Sharma auditioned for 3 idiots (2009) in which Aamir and RajKumar Hirani previously worked.


Aamir Khan's character is shown fond of Paan. To get into the character, he ate 100 paans a day and a total of approximately 10,000 during the filming of the movie.


Music rights sold for 15 crores.


Aamir Khan apparently trained to learn Bhojpuri for the past 2 years with the help of TV writer Shanti Bhushan.


Opened with highest 1st week domestic collection. Right now, bollywood's 3rd highest grosser movie worldwide, behind Dhoom 3 and Chennai Express.


Poster release of PK featuring nude Aamir Khan with his private parts being hidden by only a Transistor he held in his hands, sparked controversy leading many people pleading for not releasing the film.


Jaggu's full name is Jagat Janani Sahni, as seen on her driver's license in the film. Her surname, Sahni, is borrowed from the actor who played Jaggu's father, Parikshit Sahni.


They shot the scene, where the Sikh man asks for money, at the same shopping complex that was the setting for the scene in 3 idiots where Rancho gives Pia a demo with the 4 lac watch.

Goofs




Character error 

P.K. blinks his eyes several times throughout the film.


Location: PK and Jaggu sitting in the Baoli, after Jaggu starts believing in him after the beggar incident in CP (5 Star dinner party celebrating 75 years of marriage). He says that he believed her because she pent Five thousand Rs. in the temple incident. But actually her purse only had 500 Rs which the priest forcibly put inside the charity box. Even if we add the jail cost, even then the total cost would be 1000 and not 5000.


Continuity 

In her entry scene, Jaggu is shown locking her bike and then she heads towards the concert. After she ruins old guy's suit, Sarfaraz is shown to immediately ride her on the same bike while she was being chased by security guards.


When Jaggu calls her father on video call to tell him about Sarfaraz, her father goes to Tapasvi Maharaj. When he is at home, there may be Wi-Fi for the internet connection. Now, how is the internet working on the laptop when he goes to Tapasvi Maharaj? There is also no dongle or data card plugged into the laptop.


Errors in geography 

The TV show at the climax of the movie is scheduled to being at 6PM in New Delhi, where it's dark outside as the sun has already set. A few minutes into the show, the lead character calls the Pakistani Embassy in Belgium, who then calls the 3nd lead character in Pakistan, where we see it's day time. If it's past 6PM in New Delhi, India, it cannot be day time in Pakistan.


At the start of the film, when Jaggu is reciting her story, she mentions that Rajisthan is nearly 5000km far from Belgium; whereas, originally the distance is 6,391 km.

Aamir Khan's film PK has been courting controversies ever since it released on December 19. The critically acclaimed film is also doing well at the box-office. However, according to reports, not everyone is happy with the film's content as they think it hurts their religious sentiments. In an attempt to protest against the film, Bajrang Dal activists have apparently vandalized prominent theatres that were screening the film in Ahmedabad and Bhopal. The activists were caught on camera damaging theatres in the city. However, the film industry has lent its support to the film and some of them have even criticised the attack. The controversy over the film doesn't seem to stop. Celebrities are tweeting in support of the film.

Aamir's close friend, Salman Khan, in support of the film, tweeted, "Is PK not an amazzziiing film?"

Pooja Bedi wrote, "God wants SPIRITUAL FRUIT.. not RELIGIOUS NUTS!! LLet's support #PK"
"I love the bit in #PK when aamir says.. God creatd earth, planets. Galaxies &universes & u a mortal are "protecting" that gigantic force?"

Uday Chopra tweeted, "What a wonderful film #PK is...just saw it and I'm bowled over by it. It is the most important film that every Indian should see. Salute!"

All the tweets are taken from Twitter. 


Actor Ranvir Shorey posted, "I would say these morons vandalising against PKshould go get jobs, except that we all know this is their livelihood."

Bollywood producer Ritesh Sidhwani tweeted, "PK is a must watch. I am a believer and nowhere does it hurt our sentiments or questions religion. In fact it teaches you to love. And not fear in the name of God. What it rightfully does is questions the so called messengers and their role between us and our belief."

Shekhar Kapur wrote, "I found PK very entertaining. But I still admire the amazing selfless work some of our spiritual leaders are doing for our people #PKdebate," filmmaker Shekhar Kapur said. 


Filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted, "Attacking a duly censored film has to stop!!! What kind of a democracy are we living in?? No film should be targeted or be allowed to..,#PK."

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri also tweeted against the attack. He wrote, "If we all are so enlightened than why do we need a film like #pk to question the pimps of religion. Isn't it common sense? All those gundas attacking cinema halls showing #pk must be arrested immediately and locked up with Asaram."

Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors, also extended his support to the film by tweeting, "In Progressive India 2014, I don't understand the concept of ban. Even the Supreme court says don't watch the film if you don't like it! #PK" 


Anurag Kashyap too has come all out in support of PK and said in an interview, "Anybody who is shown the mirror will always feel offended. But the amazing thing about the film is that it is so clever. Clearly, it has done so well that anybody who stands up and says, 'This film offends me,' it shows them that the film was right."

Anurag is all praise for Hirani and calls him daring to take on a subject like religion, God and Godmen in PK. "Raju and everybody (Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Aamir Khan) are brave filmmakers because they went on and took something on hands that we all are afraid of taking. He has done it with such good humour and and fun that it is reaching out to who it should reach out to," he added.

He feels it's high time people stop getting offended every now and then about a film's content. "It's high time that we stop getting so offended all the time...our offence being politically motivated. Let things be (as they are)...allow every kind of debate and dissent to exist within our society," Kashyap said.
 

amir Khan, who is known for portraying his roles with perfection, says he respect all religions. "We respect all religions. All my Hindu friends have seen the film and they have not felt the same. Even Raju is Hindu, so is Vinod and so is Abhijat. In fact 99% of the crew was Hindu. No one would have done such a thing," he had clarified in an interview. 


n an Interview to DNA, Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani had explained his point-of-view with which the film was made. 
Rajkumar Hirani said, "We have not done anything for which people can tell we have deliberately hurt anyone's religious sentiments. The core idea of the film is just that we are not born with a birthmark proclaiming we are Hindus or Muslims or Sikhs or Christians. It is just that like a baby is born without any pre-conceived notions and is made to follow a certain lifestyle and perform certain rituals, we decided to have Aamir as an alien which meant he too did not have any idea or notions about what religion is here on Earth. A newborn baby is taught to follow certain rules and act according to one's religious traditions. When they grow up and have their own set of ideologies, they think their ways or methods are right and others are wrong. To a Hindu, some ritual might be done in a certain manner or something might be considered sacred. But for Muslims, it might be something else. That is what we tried to portray that our ways are different, not by choice, but our faith remains the same." 




In an IANS report, Boman Irani said that he's happy that PK had managed to engage people in a discussion over sensitive issues such as religion, God and Godmen. The actor, who has worked with Raju Hirani in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, 3 Idiots and is also a part of PK, says people should respect a director's point of view.
Boman says, "Any film worth a debate is a good film. It is a point-of-view and you have to respect that. Of course people will protest and create controversy. Everybody will do. But it is so nice because everybody is having discussion about it and anything worth a debate is a good film. Rajkumar Hirani films will always have something to think about. You agree or disagree with the film or you like or dislike a film, that's a different thing but his films will atleast make you think. His films will make you re-assess your own values and re-evaluate yourselves saying, 'May be he is right may be he is wrong but I am thinking'. And that thought has to be respectful because he is respecting the audience."
