    Aamir presents 'Jaane Tu...' audio CD to Shammi Kapoor

    Mumbai (PTI): Bollywood actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan on Tuesday said that he wanted his production house to be associated with sensible, entertaining cinema just like the films he acts in.

    "I am very particular about what goes in my name. 'Jaane Tu...Ya na jaane' is the first film as a producer which I am not acting in. But, I am happy with the way it was shaped," Aamir told reporters outside the residence of veteran actor Shammi Kapoor.

    Aamir along with the cast and crew of his film and family members visited Shammi Kapoor to present him the first audio CD of his film's music.

    "Shammi uncle is my lucky mascot. Whenever I have started something new, I have sought his blessings ... be it my first film as an actor or as a director," he said.

    "Jaane Tu..." marks the debut of my nephew Imran Khan and hence Shammi uncle's blessings are important," he said.

    Regarding the movie's music, Aamir said A R Rehman's score is "very youthful and fresh".

    Responding to questions on how he chose to launch his nephew, Aamir said he did not believe in launches. "Films are important. Whoever suits the characters should be taken. Abbas Tyrewala narrated the script to me and I liked it. He had already screentested Imran and had decided to sign him. 'Jaane Tu...' was not designed to launch Imran," he said.

    "I have to be convinced about the film as a producer. I would not like Imran to do a film which I didn't like," he said.

    Aamir said his biggest contribution as producer has been bringing his cousin filmmaker Mansoor Khan on board to oversee the production of the film. "We are all hoping that he will take to direction again," he said.
