Aamir in Munnabhai director's next

Gullu Gupshup | February 18, 2008 14:08 IST

Aamir Khan

Shah Rukh Khan's loss has become Aamir Khan's [Images] gain.


SRK [Images] was slated to do a film with Munnabhai [Images] director Rajkumar Hirani. Unfortunately, the actor had differences with the film's producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and opted out of the film.


Hirani has moved on to his next film, called Idiots. It will star Aamir Khan, according to Khan's latest post on his blog.


Idiots is a story based on a college campus, and deals with five 'useless' students.


Hirani has become one of the most sought after directors in Bollywood after he delivered two blockbusters, Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai. SRK was so impressed with the director that he desired to work with the director.


Unfortunately, when Chopra's Eklavya was sent to the Oscars as India's entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category, sparks flew as Chopra belittled Paheli [Images]. SRK then walked out of the film.


Now, Aamir is all set to work in the film; the shooting of which will start later this year.
