Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has taken a year and a half break from acting to spend some time with his family and close friends. However, he could return soon after several filmmakers from Tamil, Telugu, and the Kannada industry have shown some interest to work with the actor.
Aamir receiving offers from South
Aamir Khan went heartbroken after the box office defeat of Laal Singh Chaddha. Just after the film’s disappointment, the veteran actor went on a vacation to escape from all the negativity. After coming back to India, he informed taking a temporary break from films. However, if the latest viral news is to be believed, the PK actor is getting a lot of offers from Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada industry directors.
“Madhu Mantena is trying to crack Ghajini 2 with AR Murgadoss. The process is on for the last few years, but there isn’t an outcome on the same as of now. Efforts are being made to bring Ghajini back as it’s a loved film with a character that has a possibility for a franchise. Madhu is also trying to connect with several other directors from the South for a possible collaboration with Aamir in lead,” informs a source close to the development. Reported Pinkvilla.
A Prashanth Neel film
Prashanth Neel has already reported a gangster drama with Jr. NTR. The film is expected to go on floors in 2024 and we hear that the filmmaker is planning to cast Aamir in the film.
“Prashanth Neel loves to make films whose core conflict revolves around the clash of powerful male egos. While just the first draft of the film is locked, Prashanth has been speaking with people around about how his dream cast for the film is a clash between Aamir Khan and Jr. NTR. The timeline of the shoot also is in sync with Aamir Khan’s break and it won’t be a surprise if Aamir actually zeroes down on Prashanth’s next as his comeback film in 2025,” the source said to Pinkvilla.
This is not it, there is news that many others from the South are talking about Aamir Khan and trying to crack some scripts for the actor. “A top producer is creating a mature comedy keeping Aamir in mind. Given that Aamir has ample dates, a lot of directors and writers are coming together to pitch something big and worthy to the Perfectionist,” said a source.
Talking of Aamir, the actor is clear to make a return to the big screen with a proper commercial entertainer that earns a theatrical watch. “He is hearing everyone out but won’t sign a film till he is 100 percent confident on the content,” the source added.
Meanwhile, speaking about taking a break after Laal Singh Chaddha’s failure, Aamir said, “I was supposed to do a film after Laal Singh Chaddha called Champions. It’s a wonderful script, a beautiful story, and it’s a very heartwarming and lovely film. But I feel that I want to take a break, be with my family, with my mom, my kids.” He added that he won’t be doing any film for at least a year and a half. But it seems that he might change his mind.
