Raj Kumar Hirani's upcoming movie PK will have the Gandhian philosophy as its core much like his previous 2006 blockbuster Lage Raho Munnabhai.

National-award winning filmmaker's PK, which is expected to be a satire on Hindu gods and godmen, stars Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles.

When asked whether PK too will have a Gandhian touch like that of Lage Raho Munnabhai, the 51-year-old director, who addressed a session on Richard Attenborough and Gandhi said, "Of course, it will have."

The director continued to retain the suspense on the storyline of the film, scheduled to hit theatres on December 19 adding, "I can't talk much about PK now and we all are pretty excited about it."

The session was also attended by his producer-friend Vidhu Vinod Chopra on the sidelines of ongoing IFFI.

Chopra claimed that he was scared and apprehensive about the reactions to PK. "I am scared before the release of every film and it is the case with PK too," he said.

"I was scared before the release of the film Lage Raho Munnabhai. We were not getting distributors to release the film as they felt the film is too boring without an item number in it. I told them there is item (referring to the role of Gandhi in the movie). That's a fight we had to do. It was the most courageous attempt to present Gandhi as a friend," he said.

Lage Raho Munnabhai starred Marathi actor Dilip Prabhalkar besides actor-duo Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi as the famous Munna Circuit.
