The buzz doing the rounds in film circle is that Aamir Khan has found his next film project. After his successful blockbuster Dhoom 3, the actor is ready with the second season of his television show Satyamev Jayate. He has also wrapped principal photography on Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K., which is slated to release around Christmas time this year.
However, sources close to the actor say he’d been meeting writers and directors for the past few months, listening to scripts and weighing offers. After considerable deliberation on his part, it seems Aamir has said ‘yes’ to a time-travel drama to be produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. The film will be directed by first-timer Nithya Mehra, and will likely go on the floors later this year.
Although Excel Entertainment’s Ritesh Sidhwani has denied any such project in motion, industry insiders are time and again pressing on the film being in process.
What’s interesting is that, in the 1990s too Aamir had signed Shekhar Kapur’s sci-fi titled Time Machine. The film starred Raveena Tandon, Naseeruddin Shah and Rekha. Although after its first schedule, the film was shelved.
