Now that GHAJINI has released, Aamir moves on to 3 IDIOTS, directed by Rajkumar Hirani. “I am enjoying working with Raju. He’s a terrific storyteller,” he smiles. Is he pumping iron to retain the muscular look for this film? “No, no… Raju wants a lean look for the film, so I’ve stopped working out since the past few months. I need to look different for this film,” he divulges. Flush with the success of his home-productions TAARE ZAMEEN PAR and JAANE TU… YA JAANE NA, Aamir has started three more films. And like his previous endeavours, the three films are being helmed by first-time directors. One of the projects is, in fact, being directed by his wife Kiran. “I am not producing this project. I’m funding and presenting it. Besides, I am also acting in Kiran’s film,” Aamir says. Tentatively titled DHOBI GHAT, Aamir says that the film revolves around four characters primarily, the other three being Prateek Babbar and two new girls. “Prateek is evolving into a very fine actor,” he states. The conversation veers to Aamir and SRK acting in a movie together. Is it possible? “Of course, it is! I am open to working with SRK. I have no problems. Only thing, the script has to do justice to the two actors. I’m sure there’re a lot of capable directors who’d be interested in signing this combination,” he states. Any director who can get this dream cast together? “Oh yes, Mani Ratnam, Ashutosh Gowariker, Farhan Akhtar, there’re so many talented names out there. I’m game to work with a new director as well if he has the right script,” he says.
