Battle of the Khans: It’s either Shah Rukh or Aamir in Imtiaz Ali’s next!


Now that Tamasha is over and ready for release, all eyes are on what director Imtiaz Ali will helm next. Sources say that the director who is known to work mostly with Gen Next actors, will be casting one of the Khans in his next venture. And no, we’re not talking about Saif Ali Khan.

Sources say that either Shah Rukh Khan or Aamir Khan will feature in his next. The SRK film that he is in talks with might be a co-production with Red Chillies and Sajid Nadiadwala, who has signed the director for two more films. Imtiaz’s forte is modern-day love stories and SRK is the King of Romance; it will be interesting to see what the duo will do together. In fact, insiders say that Shah Rukh and Imtiaz had even met to discuss the possibility of doing a film. But that was a few months ago. SRK already has a couple of films on hand — the upcoming Dilwale, Raees and Fan, so this film might not happen right away.

Aamir, on the other hand, works only on one film at a time and is currently shooting for Dangal. It’s more likely that he will sign his next with Imtiaz. It will be nice to see Aamir who lately has been doing action films, thrillers and satirical comedies returning to romance. Unless, Imtiaz plans something different, of course.
