Mumbai: A few days back, Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap had confirmed Aamir Khan’s presence in his joint venture with Danny Boyle titled ‘Bombay Velvet’. And now, the perfectionist Khan, who is presently looking forward to the release of his next home production ‘Peepli Live’, has opened up about his association with the much-awaited movie.

Confirming his presence in ‘Bombay Velvet’, Aamir said, "Yes I have been offered Danny`s film, but I am completely involved with Peepli right now."

A source reveals that Aamir and Danny had first talked about a combined project at the premiere of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ in Mumbai. But later, the two could be spotted meeting frequently, which was apparently Danny’s attempt to convince the actor to be a part of his upcoming project. "I have been offered many projects, I am thinking over them," said Aamir.

A couple of days back, while refuting the rumours about Shah Rukh’s association with the project, the critically-acclaimed director Anurag Kashayp had said, "Shah Rukh Khan is a nice actor, but this script is tailor made for Aamir. We never considered casting anyone else."

‘Bombay Velvet’, to be directed by Anurag Kashyap, is said to be based on a series of real life city based stories.
