Almost sixty years after Bharat Bhushan played Baiju Bawra, Aamir Khan could soon reprise the role of the legendary gypsy singer in a new Bollywood film, a media report said Monday.
“Bollywood’s ‘Mr Perfect’ Aamir Khan has been picked for a special role, which nobody except him will be able to essay. Film-maker Krishna Shah wants Aamir to play the role of the wandering singer,” a leading Urdu daily reported.
According to the report, the project was lying dormant for a long time as Shah was involved in his film Mother: The Indira Gandhi Story but now Shah is determined to take it forward.
Krishna has already approached Aamir for the role, while A.R. Rahman has been roped in for the music.
