PK is a 2014 Indian comedy-drama film directed by Rajkumar Hirani, produced by Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Siddharth Roy Kapur, and written by Hirani and Abhijat Joshi. The film stars Aamir Khan in the title role, with Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani, Saurabh Shukla, and Sanjay Dutt in supporting roles. Aamir Khan’s character as PK is inspired from a real life character Abraham Kovoor. Hirani has stated that the film will be a satire on "God and godmen". PK released on 19 December 2014.
PK (Aamir Khan), an alien with a body similar to the human body, lands on earth but gets stranded in Rajasthan as his spaceship's remote control device gets stolen; PK, while trying to take it back just manages to take the radio recorder of the thief. At first naked, PK finds out that this is not accepted. He steals clothes from couples having S€X in cars.
He get's befriended by Bhairon Singh (Sanjay Dutt) who helps PK try to adjust to Earth customs. PK can download someone's brain to his own by holding hands with him or her. Among other things he wants to use this for quickly learning the Bhojpuri language. However, he finds out that just grabbing a hand of Sing or of a stranger, whether male or female, is not accepted. Sing, who interprets PK's behavior as sexual interest, takes him to a brothel. There he holds a prostitute's hand for several hours, and thus learns the language.
PK goes to Delhi, because he is told that this is a likely place where his stolen device has been sold. Delhi turns out to be a very large city, and people tell him only God can help him find the device. However, PK is confused by the various religions and learns that it is still not easy. Then he figures out that a Godmen, Tapasvi Maharaj (Saurabh Shukla), now owns his device and fools people that he got it from the Himalayas. PK meets TV reporter Jagat Janani (Anushka Sharma) and tells her the whole story and they both end up confronting the godman.
During their fight against Tapasvi, Jaggu's channel head (Boman Irani) helps them by using his channel as platform to expose Tapasvi. People in masses get connected to the show and open their eyes against the fake godmen. Finally PK gets his device back. In the same TV show Janani is happy to learn that Sarfaraz (Sushant Singh Rajput), a man from Pakistan she met in Bruges, is still in love with her, which she did not know due to miscommunication. Returning home is not easy for PK because he loves Janani, but he takes two suitcases with audio tapes of her voice with him, and many spare batteries for his radio recorder. Movie ends with PK coming back on earth for more research with another alien (Ranbir Kapoor).

Hirani cast Sushant Singh Rajput after director Abhishek Kapoor showed him Rajput's rushes. Aamir Khan, Ram Sethi and Anushka Sharma were all confirmed to be performing in the film, with Khan stated to be portraying lead character of PK.
The co-director Khan began looking for shooting locations in July 2012. Second unit filming was set to begin in late 2012, which was stalled after the rumoured departure of three department heads for the film and bad weather stalling initial shoots. 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". Shooting officially began on 1 February 2013, with the filming scheduled to occur over a 45-day period. A 26-day schedule of shooting of PK started in Delhi from 27 September 2013. 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 film where a man dressed as the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva pulls the rickshaw with two burqa clad women as passengers.
The movie released on 19 December 2014.
