In her over a decade-long career in Hindi films, Kangana Ranaut has never worked with any of Bollywood’s leading Khans – Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. It’s not that she was never offered roles opposite them, but the actress herself chose not to work in films where an actress does not get a meatier role as compared to their male counterparts. Kangana is never game for films where an actress is just supposed to look good and run around a tree.
However, some pictures of Aamir Khan and Kangna Ranaut along with producer Kamal Jain went viral on social media a couple of hours back, and netizens did not take much time in jumping at the conclusion that both are coming together for a film. Kamal Jain, who is the co-producer of Kangana Ranaut’s forthcoming period drama ‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’, reveals to a popular tabloid that a collaboration is indeed on the anvil.
Talking about the meeting, the producer says, “The meeting was regarding a collaboration that is in the works. It was a positive meeting. We had a long discussion, and are hopeful that something more fruitful comes of it.”
Well, before you think that Khan and Ranaut are teaming up for a film as a pair, let’s make this clear that the duo might join hands for a project where Kangna plays the female lead but Khan will be associated with the project in the capacity of a producer.
The trade circle is buzzing with the news that Ranaut and Jain met Khan to discuss the Arunima Sinha biopic. “The film was originally expected to be backed by Farhan Akhtar but was later acquired by DAR Motion Pictures. Given its compelling storyline, it won’t be surprising if Aamir Khan also comes on board as producer,” reveals a source.
An official announcement on the new project is awaited.
