Was offered number of Hollywood films, but I didn't like scripts: Aamir Khan
It seems like Hollywood has become a hot destination for Bollywood actors to work as a large number of actors from the Indian film industry including Irrfan Khan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are heading towards the west.

But then, not every Bollywood actor has the same craze for Hollywood films and one such example is of Aamir Khan.

Recently, Mr. Perfectionist was speaking at a discussion panel, The Indian Futurescape. When he was asked, whether he would like to expand his horizons and work in Hollywood films like other Indian actors, he said, he never liked the Hollywood scripts he was offered.

"Working in the west doesn't interest me particularly. What interests me is a good film. It should be a film that touches my heart and I feel I can perform in. Where the film is made is irrelevant. There have been number of offers to me from Hollywood but I did not like the scripts," said Aamir Khan. 

The PK star also added that doing international films would not give him the same joy that he gets when his work is received well by the Indian audience.

"Why I don't feel like doing that (work in the west) is because I feel I have an emotional connection with my audience, with the people of this country. It is a relationship that we have built over 27 years, something that I value a lot. I don't want to leave my audience behind. I will not be happy doing that. These are my people, we belong to each other. If I go to some other place and strange people react to my movie I may not feel the same. Emotionally, I would rather work here, if there is an offer from America, China or Japan which excites me I will do it," he said.
