This is what Aamir Khan looks for in a script

Mumbai: Superstar Aamir Khan who is one of the jurors of India’s biggest and most popular Cinestaan India's Storytellers Script Contest shares his thoughts on what he seeks from budding scriptwriters while writing a script.
Aamir Khan says, “When I sign a film, I first look at the story or the script. We are looking at somebody with an imagination and a different story or scenario that we come across, where the characters have been well written, the premise and goal is clear and where the whole journey of the story is highly entertaining and engaging. That’s what we look for in a good script. Actors and technicians are all a part of the film but it all begins with the writer. The writer is the origin and the most important aspect of the making of a film."
Aamir further adds that he learned about the importance of the script, the director and the producer at a very early stage in his film career. On being invited to be a part of the Cinestaan India’s Storytellers Script contest, Aamir felt that it is a really good attempt which must be supported.
Post the success of the first edition of the contest which began last year, the second edition of the script contest has already kick-started with entries continuously pouring in.
