Aamir Khan as Anna Hazare in new film?

While we are fully appreciative of Aamir Khan’s various non-Bollywood interests and his support of the cause of the common man, we cannot help wondering if it all comes down to the role…eventually. You saw him sit by Anna Hazare at the Ramlila Maidan protest last weekend and you may even have felt a little teary-eyed at the way he supported the activist on the stage. But we heard something that could add a little gossip-spice to the whole thing – apparently Ghajini producer Madhu Mantena wants Aamir to play a prominent role in his remake of the Telugu film, Tagore, the story of an anti-corruption crusader, essayed by Chiranjeevi. If things go as rumoured, our Khan saheb will act the part of the crusader who starts a vigilante organisation to fight corruption. We also heard, by the way, that Prakash Jha is also making a film on those lines, with Amitabh Bachchan as the hero.
