Aamir Khan is being considered for the Indo-British venture Maheen opposite a British actress.
Aamir has already committed himself to Ketan Mehta's The Rising, opposite Rani Mukherji. He will play Mangal Pandey, a freedom fighter. Bobby Bedi, who has produced films like Shekhar Kapur's Bandit Queen and Deepa Mehta's Fire, will produce the film.
Filmmaker Harry Baweja is glad Former Miss India-Universe Neha Dhupia replaced Lagaan's Gracy Singh in Qayamat.
Says Baweja, "Gracy Singh's date hassles made us take Neha in my film. It has proved to be a blessing in disguise.
"There is a scene where Neha comes out of the pool wearing a swimming costume. I don't think viewers would have digested Gracy doing it, but they can surely visualise Neha in that [swimwear]," he says.
Qayamat is ready for release.
Saahil back in style
Saahil Khan virtually disappeared after N Chandra's semi-hit Style (Sharman Joshi, Riya Sen).
He will now feature in N Chandra's Excuse Me. He is also working in Sangeeta Ahir's [former wife of producer Sudhakar Bokade, who made Saajan] Sab Golmaal Hai, directed by Ajay Chandok.
Besides, he is the male lead opposite Urmila Matondkar in Ajay Phansekar's new film. Phansekar earlier made Encounter - The Killing with Naseerudin Shah and Tara Deshpande.
