Mumbai: Aamir Khan might have decided to take a sabbatical this year, concentrating on the release of his two productions, but the actor is keen to get back to acting. And doing just that, the perfectionist Khan has signed on Reema Kagti’s new film, which will be produced by Farhan Akhtar.
Kagti is one of the few critically acclaimed directors who has ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd’ to her name. And with Aamir by her side, Reema has decided to opt for a suspense drama this time round.
Confirming the news, a source said, “There has been a lot of speculation about the film Aamir will sign next, especially because it’s been more than ten months he hasn’t signed one since the release of ‘3 Idiots’. Also, news has been doing the rounds that the actor has taken a break just to read scripts, which have been lying with him since he got busy with Peepli Live. ”
Aamir signing Reema’s film comes as a surprise to many since many reports suggested that the actor might sign Aditya Chopra’s ‘Dhoom 3’ or Anuraag Kashyap’s ‘Bombay Dreams’
As per sources, Reema has written the script of this film with Zoya Akhtar. And for the leading ladies, reports suggest that the film will have two leading ladies. The film will be jointly produced by Farhan and Ritesh Sidhwani’s company Excel Entertainment and Aamir Khan Productions and will go on floors in February 2011.
As for Farhan, he said, “It feels great to be collaborating with Aamir a decade after ‘Dil Chahta Hai’. We had been hoping do a film together since then and I’m thrilled that it is finally happening with this script.”
Aamir too confirmed and said, “Yes it’s true. I found this script written by Reema and Zoya exciting and I am looking forward to working with Ritesh and Farhan once again.”
