Superstar Aamir Khan is likely to feature in Priyadarshan’s much-awaited film based on AIDS.
“The project on AIDS is on, but the script is not yet ready... (I had) too many schedules and things to do so couldn’t finish the script. I had discussed it with Aamir earlier and that time he wanted to do the film,” the director told PTI April 30.
The 55-year-old filmmaker has been talking about this project since 2009. It has been learnt that after Priyadarshan wraps up his current project, “Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal,” he will start work on the untitled AIDS film, which will be without songs, comedy or commercial trappings.
“If he has time he will do it,” the National Award-winning director said.
Earlier, filmmakers Revathy and Onir had explored this subject in their films “Phir Milenge” (2004) and “My Brother Nikhil” (2005), respectively. Neither film had a successful run at the box office, but they received critical acclaim.
