Aamir Khan apparently opted out from the project due to date clashes; however soon, the matter was resolved. According to the sources, it was Rajkumar Hirani who brought Aamir’s attention to the project. A source also told a leading entertainment portal, “Actually when the script was drafted, Bhushan Kumar wanted to run it past Rajkumar Hirani for any inputs from him. Though Hirani was busy with the post production of Sanju, he took out time and made sure to go through the script and what he saw impressed him. So much so that he wanted Aamir also to read it. As Aamir and Hirani have had a great working relationship and shared quite a knack for storytelling, Aamir got his hands on the script and liked it.”
On the other hand, Aamir Khan is currently working on his upcoming movie Thugs Of Hindostan. It also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles. The film is slated to release in November this year. Also, Aamir Khan’s production house will be releasing the Hindi version of Kamal Haasan’s much-anticipated film Vishwaroopam 2.
The film is slated for a Diwali release this year.
