Unlike several others who have been recommended by Sallu earlier, this is no struggling new comer but an established actor known popularly as Ace Khan aka Mr. Perfectionist aka Amir Khan.
When Siddique, director of the blockbuster 'Bodyguard', approached Sallu with an idea for his next entertainer, the latter felt Aamir would best suit the role.
Apparently, Salman is busy wrapping up the shooting for Kabir Khan's 'Ek Tha Tiger' and also has his home production 'Dabbang 2' lined up.
Keeping in mind his hectic schedule, Salman will find it difficult to commit to Siddique's film even if he wanted to. Hence, he suggested good friend Aamir’s name and even offered to talk to him on Siddique's behalf.
Since their film 'Andaz apna apna' both have been the best of chums and thick as thieves. They are often seen hanging out at each other's success parties.
In an industry full of hypocrites, this altruist act by Sallu is quite admirable.
The sense of camaraderie among the duo is really inspirational and that is one reason why the audience has been craving to see them together on screen again.
When contacted, Siddique confirmed the news but stated that he is still working on the script.
According to him, until the screenplay is completed it is trifle difficult to figure out which actor would best suit the role. Therefore it is too early to talk about the casting.
Meanwhile, providing some interesting tidbits about his new venture, Siddique said the project will be produced by Shyam Bajaj, who had earlier made the movie 'Bandhan' with Salman.
The film is likely to be an action packed romantic thriller with a sprinkling of good humor.
Huh....., now that would be a perfect recipe for a hit movie. Wouldn't it?
