Mumbai: Post the humongous success of ‘3 Idiots’, actor-producer Aamir Khan hasn’t signed a single film. Buzz has that Aamir is spending sleepless nights reading scripts and meeting Bollywood’s A-list filmmakers to pick his next outing.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Aamir had quite a few scripts to read. His last film ‘3 Idiots’ broke all Box Office records and collected over 425 crore. Even the collection for ‘Dabangg’ (240 crore) was neck to neck with Aamir’s ‘Ghajini’ (235 crore). Any other actor in Aamir’s place would have signed multiple films after the success of ‘3 Idiots’. However, Aamir got busy with his production venture ‘Peepli Live’. Over 10 months after the release of ‘3 Idiots’, he’ll sign his next.”
It is believed that B-town is keen to know which film Aamir will choose to sign next, as that one will surely become the biggest grosser for the coming year.
News has it that Anurag Kashyap, Aditya Chopra, Rajkumar Santoshi and John Matthew Matthan have been spotted visiting Aamir’s house late in the night. Apparently, for the past twenty days, Aamir has stopped socialising as he spends most of the time reading scripts.
“Everyone is aware that Aditya Chopra is keen to sign Aamir for ‘Dhoom 3’ and that Anurag Kashyap is talking to him for ‘Bombay Velvet’. John Matthew Matthan has been having discussions with the actor on ‘Sarfarosh 2’ and Rajkumar Santoshi too has a completely different script planned for him. There are other scripts as well but at the moment, Aamir wants to concentrate on these ones,” added the source.
When contacted, Aamir’s official spokesperson said, “Yes, Aamir is reading scripts currently and is in the process of finalising one shortly.”
