Actor Salman Khan, who is famous among his fraternity for being a true friend, has reportedly asked director Siddique of Bodyguard fame to cast Aamir Khan in his next Bollywood film.
A source said after Bodyguard became a hit last year, the South-based director wants to work with Salman again. Veteran producer Shyam Bajaj is keen on the alliance too.
“But after hearing the script, Salman felt that the project would suit Aamir Khan. Besides, he also conceded that he’s currently tied up with prior commitments like Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2. So even if he wished to, he couldn’t commit to it,” said the source.
“He’s even believed to have said that he would talk to Aamir if Siddique wanted him to,” added the source.
When contacted, Siddique maintained that he’s still working on his next script. “Only after I complete the writing part can I figure out which actors can be considered for the cast. So it’s too early to talk about the casting,” he said.
Speaking about the kind of film he is working on, the director said: “It’s an action-romance with some humour and also a thriller element. That’s all I can say at this point.”Aamir Khan Bodyguard Salman Khan Siddique
