Aamir Khan to play Baiju Bawra in Krishna Shah’s next

Spicezee Bureau

Mumbai: Known for his perfectionist ways, there is no dearth of good roles offered to Aamir Khan. And many actors can only dream of the roles essayed by Aamir Khan on screen. Going by the latest buzz in Tinsel Town, Aamir may play the lead in Krishna Shah’s next venture ‘Baiju – The Gypsy’.

According to reports, Hollywood director Krishna Shah was working on a script for his next movie ‘Baiju – The Gypsy’ and the director was very keen to cast Aamir in the lead role. But buzz has it that the script was put on indefinite hold by the director for some apparent reason.

Interestingly, director Krishna Shah seems inspired to work on the project again, after AR Rahman commented recently Krishna Shah`s ‘Baiju-The Gypsy’ was one of the most cherished scripts he has read and was disappointed when it was put on hold.

When contacted by a news daily, director Shah said, "In fact Rahman had insisted on me contacting Aamir for the role of Baiju. He even offered to call him. But somehow, things did not work out".

However, Shah does not have time to direct ‘Baiju – The Gypsy’ now, as he is working on his forthcoming film ‘Mother: The Indira Gandhi Story’. Shah is now looking for a talented director who can implement his much touted script of ‘Baiju – The Gypsy’ on big screen.
