P.K. (also spelled Peekay) is an upcoming 2014 Hindi satiric film directed by Rajkumar Hirani.[2][3]

Director Raju Hirani has stated that the film will be a satire about "Hindu Gods and their godmen." Aamir Khan is starring in the lead role.[4]




Hirani cast Sushant Singh Rajput after Kai Po Che director Abhishek Kapoor showed him Rajput's rushes.[5][6] Aamir Khan, Ram Sethi, and Anushka Sharma were all confirmed to be performing in the film, with Khan stated to be portraying lead character P.K.[7][8][9]


Co-director Khan began looking for shooting locations in July 2012.[10] Second unit filming was set to begin in late 2012,[11] which was stalled after the rumoured departure of three department heads for the film and bad weather stalling initial shoots.[12][13] Hirani denied rumours that the film would be delayed, stating that principal filming had always been intended to begin in mid-January 2013 in Delhi and Rajasthan to "capture the winter of Delhi".[14][15] Shooting officially began on 1 February 2013,[16] with the filming[17] scheduled to occur over a 45-day period.[18] Some of the scenes were shot in the city of Bruges, Belgium, from 10 to 19 June 2013. A 26-day schedule in of shooting of P.K. started in n Delhi from 27 September 2013.[19][20][21] When the shoot of the film was going on in Chandni Chowk area of Delhi, an FIR was lodged against makers of the film for allegedly hurting religious sentiments in October 2013. The objection was regarding a scene in the movie where a man dressed as the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva pulls the rickshaw with two burqa clad women as passengers.[22]
