One of the most anticipated films of all time, ‘PK’ finally releases on Friday (December 19). Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film stars Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, ‘PK’ also features Sushant Singh Rajput, Sanjay Dutt, Boman Irani and Saurabh Shukla.
The makers have definitely succeeded in creating an immense curiosity among fans and the media about the comedy drama. If you are still doubtful about watching it, we give you not one or two but 5 reasons that will hopefully make you see things clearly.
1. Aamir Khan – Rajkumar Hirani:: The duo has previously worked together to give us all-time hit flick, ‘3 Idiots’ which absolutely blew us away. Undoubtedly Aamir Khan and Raju Hirani are sure to recreate their magic once more. Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s association with the film is also bound to add to the quality factor.
2. The Suspense:Aamir Khan is a pro when it comes to surprising his audience and the actor seems all set to do it once more. Having managed to not only create a hype about the film, the ‘PK’ team has also kept the story under wraps and nobody really knows what the comedy drama is really about. But, one thing is for sure, we’re all dying to find out. While some say it’s similar to ‘OMG: Oh My God!’, others say Aamir Khan plays an alien in the flick. But you will know by tomorrow.

3. Anushka Sharma – Sushant Singh Rajput: We haven’t seen the ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ actress onscreen for nearly 2 years now, since her last release, ‘Jab tak Hai Jaan’. A substantial actress, always experimenting and a joy to watch onscreen, Anushka Sharma will be seen for the first time with ‘Kai Po Che’ actor Sushnant Singh Rajput, who plays her love interest. Wonder what kind of chemistry the duo will share.
4. Sanjay Dutt – Boman Irani: Sanjay Dutt who is currently in prison, shot for his scenes before his jail time. It would definitely be a treat to see the actor onscreen after such a long interval. Boman Irani on the other hand has been a part of previous hits by Rajkumar Hirani, including Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ and ‘3 Idiots’. We’re sure the actor will do justice to his role.

5. Music: Ajay Atul, Shantanu Moitra and Ankit Tiwari have composed the music for the comedy drama. The tunes are melodic as well as catchy. Songs like ‘Love is a waste of time’ and ‘Nanga Punga Dost’ have already become popular since their release.
Aamir Khan has been touring cities in the country for promotions. ‘PK’ will release in approximately 3500 – 5000 screens in India and about 820 screens overseas.
While Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan are collaborating after ‘3 Idiots’ in 2009 for ‘PK’, Aamir Khan will be pairing with Anushka Sharma for the first time.
