Will Aamir Khan’s loss be Hrithik Roshan’s gain?

Mr Perfectionist was in talks with Excel Entertainment for an upcoming ‘time-travel’ drama to be directed by debutant Nitya Mehra. Though Aamir was impressed with the script he couldn’t agree with the financial terms for the project

The perfectionist that he is Aamir Khan will not give you a nod to your project unless all his creative and financial demands are met. The superstar is known for getting every nuance (including his contract) right before he takes up any venture.

Our secret khabroo tells us Aamir was in advanced talks with Excel Entertainment for an upcoming sci-fi drama to be directed by debutant Nitya Mehra. While Aamir was keen to do this project as he liked the scrip immensely, he couldn’t agree on his remuneration and commercial terms offered by the production house. The 48-year-old therefore decided to walk out of the proposed deal quite amicably without any hassle.

The production house has therefore approached Hrithik Roshan for the said project as Hrithik has been remarkably successful with his sci-fi outings like Koi Mil Gaya, Krrish and Krrish 3. We also gather that Deepika Padukone was being considered as the leading lady for the movie but with Aamir’s exit the makers are not sure if the leggy lass will be interested to do the film anymore. But, hey wasn’t Deepika keen to work with Hrithik as well?

The possibilities of this time-travel seem many at the moment with various permutations and combinations of its possible lead cast being calculated by the production house. But we at BL thinks that Hrithik and Dippy will make for a solid couple who can stand tall for this hatke project-both figuratively and literally, no?
