Insiders claim P.K will be a political satire, hitting out at corruption in the country. Aamir will play an alcoholic social crusader in the film. The character’s name was decided upon after considering many options.
Hirani and Aamir chose P.K since the initials also sound like the Hindi word for ‘drunk.’ After fulfilling his commitments for Talaash and Dhoom 3, Aamir will begin shooting P.K.
For P.K, Hirani has booked Christmas 2013 for the release, even though the shooting hasn’t begun yet.
