View Full Version : A.R.Rahman - Mani Rathnam - Amir Khan

7th April 2006, 12:53 AM
[tscii:37c46eeca7]Bollywood’s number one hero Aamir Khan has officially announced that he will be doing his next films with Mani Ratnam and A.R. Murugadoss, two top south Indian directors. Aamir who is a total professional has doled out dates to Mani from October 2006 though the script is not ready.
But what has caught Bollywood brat pack directors who were after him for dates completely off the guards is Aamir’s statement- “I will be doing the remake of Ghajini a Tamil film and the original director A.R.Murugadoss will be directing it”. This has caught the entire Mumbai media by surprise as Aamir has put the soft spoken Murugadoss on the same pedestal as the great Mani Ratnam!

Aamir said that he was so impressed by the script of Murugadoss and also had a word of praise for its heroine Asin whom he personally called up to congratulate for her splendid performance as Kalpana.

Now the grapevine has it that Asin is the front runner for the heroine’s role in the Hindi version. It seems that Murugadoss has also put in a word to Aamir and the actor is reported to have said that he no problem with her being the heroine. The other contenders are Priety Zinta and Priyanka Chopra and a host of other top girls.

The Hindi producer of Ghajini is yet to be finalized thougha lot of Mumbai based corporates are willing to fund it. The film will start rolling from January 2007. Meanwhile the buzz is that Asin is not signing new Tamil films as she wants to keep her dates free for that dream role with Mr Aamir Khan which is her big ticket to Bollywood.

Aamir Khan in Mani Ratnam's film - shooting in Oct

This is sweet news for film fans that the Vindhya of the south is to join hands with the Himalaya of the north.
Mani Ratnam usually has an interval between films, but this long interval is a bit too much. After "Yuva,' his 'Guru' comes after quite a long gap. The shooting is coming along at a good pace at Chennai's Binny Mills.
The scenes involving Aishwarya Rai in 'Guru' are being shot in Mumbai. Even as 'Guru' is shaping up, Mani Ratnam has procured Aamir's call sheet."Mani Ratnam has approached me many times, but only now the time has come for things to fall in place. I have accepted to act in a Hindi film to be directed by him, shooting for which is to start from October." His acting is confirmed but Aamir says the heroine and technicians are not yet confirmed.The film is to be made only in Hindi as he has no wish to speak or act in Tamil. He has an explanation for this. However, he is to act in the re-make of a Tamil film. "After Mani Ratnam's film is completed, I am to act in the re-make of 'Ghajini' by A R Murugadoss.
