Aamir Khan, being a perfectionist, wants everything to be just right. He makes sure that the directors he works with or the directors who are appointed to work with his production house, Aamir Khan Productions, are equally perfect.
Anusha Rizvi, a debutante director, was made to undergo a test before she was selected for Aamir’s production, Peepli Live. Aamir gave her five scenes in order to test her and make sure she was the perfect choice. It was similar to the auditions that actors have to give.
According to sources, Anusha used to be a reporter who had sent Aamir an email with a script for a film on farmers’ suicides.
