The first motion poster from Aamir Khan starrer PK has people baffled.
The poster and small video teaser, which comes courtesy to Dawn.com from UTV Motion Pictures, features Khan standing with a bewildered expression on a railway track, in the nude with a boombox.
The actor’s voice then asks “Why are you staring at me like this? Don't you recognize me? I'm PK”.
The line is a bit of a marketing tease, because director Rajkumar Hirani, known for Munna Bhai, its sequel Lage Raho and Three Idiots is known for keeping mum about his productions.
Three Idiots, which once held the record for the highest grossing Indian motion picture before Bollywood started trending in on bigger budgets and regular 100 crore movies, also had limited information about its story line, other than the fact that it was a loose adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel “Five Point Someone”.
There is skepticism about Khan’s character’s origins, with initial guesses pointing towards him of being an extraterrestrial.
On the poster’s release the actor himself tweeted:
The only information available at the moment is that the film is going to be political satire.
PK releases worldwide on the 19th of December 2014.
