Bollywood superstar and director Aamir Khan is appreciative of the corporate houses entering film production but wonders whether their movies would have proper scripts that "truly entertain audience".

The maker of box-office hit Taare Zameen Par feels that the corporates would take time to establish themselves in the film world.

"It is good that the corporates are entering the film industry but there is no use of putting someone from the sectors like telecom or any other such sectors to head film production houses," Aamir, who is known for making unconventional films like The Rising and Lagaan , said.

"I have been reading scripts for the last 20 years. The corporates are just a baby and time should be given to them. It is very important to select the right script," he said while speaking at the India Today Conclave, in New Delhi on Saturday.

Giving examples of his own movies, he said, "Had I taken the script of 'Lagaan' to a corporate house, I am sure most likely, they would not have agreed to make a movie with rural background and actors in 'dhotis'. At that time, movies were all about foreign locations and designer clothes."

Aamir said, "The same would have been the case with 'Taare Zameen Par' (TZP). They most likely would not have agreed to make a film, if I told them the theme was childcare and education. It is important to have people on board who can select good scripts".

Terming himself as a complete entertainer, he said, "I listen to scripts all the time. When I listen to them, I think and feel like an audience. If a script can make me move, cry, laugh, then I am sure it would do the same to the audience".

"When I heard the script of TZP for the first time, I cried. I am told, that is exactly what most of the audience did".

Meanwhile in Chennai, Aamir has been chosen for the best debut director award-2007, instituted by the city-based Gollapudi Srinivas Memorial Foundation, for his latest flick 'Taare Zameen Par'.

The award carries a purse of Rs 1.5 lakh and a memento.

The highly-acclaimed film, which deals with the trauma of a dyslexic child, has been selected from 19 nominations from across the country in various languages including Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu and Kannada.

Announcing the award winner at a press conference on Saturday, actor Kamal Haasan said Aamir could've chosen any other subject that would be self-serving for a debutant. "But he chose this subject and went on to steal the show," he said.

The jury, including renowned Telugu film director Singeetam Srinivasa Rao and Foundation managing trustee Gollapudi Maruthi Rao, said the film was "a poignant human statement by an exceptionally gifted film hero-turned- director".

The award would be presented on August 12.

Established in 1998, the Foundation envisages to perpetuate the memory of Gollapudi Srinivas, a young director who tragically passed away in an accident during the shoot of his maiden venture in 1992.
