Aamir,
Refuting all the allegations that his forthcoming film Ghajini is a remake of Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) directed Hollywood hit, Memento, Aamir says, "Ghajini is not a remake or even slightly inspired by Hollywood flick Memento, but it's a remake of Tamil film Ghajini. Eight per cent of the film has been a remake of Tamil version, while the climax for the Hindi film has been changed a bit because director wanted to it to be fresh."

Speaking about Ghajini, Aamir tells us, "Its after a long sabbatical, I am doing an action film. After Sarfarosh (1999) I had not done any action film. Ghajini is my first out and out action film in years. The phase of action films had faded in the last couple of years so I hope with Ghajini I can re-start the trend for out and out action films."

Aamir has not been promoting his Ghajini starlet, debutante, Asin. In this regards he states, "Asin is a surprise package and a wonderful person. She will surprise audiences with her beauty charm and performance."

Aamir has managed to have eight pack abs for the film and he has gone through thorough training for the same. When asked will he be going Salman Khan way and do away with his shirts for his films, he laughs and says, "Salman is too sweet, he is the one who has actually started showing his physique. He is a fitness freak and I am slightly inspired by him."

When quizzed about Shah Rukh Khan who has recently quoted that he is the biggest brand. After a long pause, Aamir smiles and says "Shah Rukh has been saying this for last 20 years now, so it is not new."

For now the actor has made no new year plans. "It all depends on the film Ghajini how it does at box office" he concludes.
