I am not the only reason for a film to be successful

Mumbai: Actor-producer Aamir Khan, whose home production `Delhi Belly` releases today, feels that he does not have a Midas touch to make a film successful but does take credit for accepting and supporting wonderful scripts, that made his ventures victorious at the box-office.

"I don`t believe I have a golden touch. I don`t think I am the only reason for a film to be successful. Every film that you see of my mine that has become successful has first being originated in the mind of the writer, with whom I have no connection and have given no idea to him," Aamir told PTI.

"Had these beautiful scripts not come to me then I would have not been able to be part of it. So I think the first thing we must realise that there is huge contribution from each of these writers. Then each of the directors and the other creative talent that has contributed towards the success of the film be credited," he said.

In the recent times, films like `Peepli Live`, `3 Idiots`, `Gajini`, `Taare Zameen Par` and few others – that have done well at the box office, have seen the perfectionist either acting or producing the films.

`Peepli Live` saw Aamir producing the film and for `Taare Zameen Par` he turned director and also acted in the film.

While, in case of `3 Idiots, `Gajini` `Rang De Basanti`, `Fanna` he as acted in these films.

Aamir said `Lagaan` was born in Ashutosh Gowarikar`s mind and he wrote it. "I had nothing to do it when he came to me his script was totally complete and I loved it. Same is the case with `Peepli Live` was written by Anusha Rizvi, `Taare Zameen Par` by Amole Gupte," he said. .
