There is no leading actor in Bollywood ace filmmaker Karan Johar has not worked with. From Khans to Kumars and Kapoors to Malhotras, all topnotch actors of the industry have done at least one film with Dharma Productions, except Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan. Yes, it’s been almost 20 years since Johar started making films, but he has yet not managed to take Aamir Khan onboard for any of his production or directorial venture. However, if latest rumours are anything to go by, Kjo and Khan might join hands for the very first time for a film.
A source reveals to a popular entertainment portal that Aamir has finally agreed to star in a Dharma Productions’ venture. “Aamir Khan is very excited with the script that has come his way. He gave his nod and is all set to dive into the skin of the character soon. The prep has already begun and one shouldn’t be surprised if we get to see a different Aamir Khan while promoting his much awaited ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’. However, Khan won’t be signing the dotted line until he is convinced about the look and the other details of his character and the film”.
Almost little to nothing is known about the new project which is taking shape, but we hear that it will be jointly produced by Dharma Productions and Aamir Khan Productions. An official announcement is awaited, though.
Meanwhile, there have been speculations that Aamir was planning a multi-million film on the Hindu epic, ‘Mahabharata’. Buzz also had it that business tycoon Mukesh Ambani was pumping around ₹ 1000 crores into the project. But we haven’t heard much about the ambitious project of late. Looks like Aamir has shelved it.
