Aamir doing Dhoom 3?


When veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra and his wife Pamela attended Aamir Khan’s party for international musician Gustavo Santaolalla, they weren’t just socialising with the Bollywood superstar. Their visit also had a serious business connotation to it. Chopra has reportedly left behind a script for Aamir to leaf through for his next directorial venture. And Aamir is likely to start reading it in August after he finishes with the Peepli Live promotions.

The meeting between Yash and Aamir is causing quite a flutter, and in the corridors of Naaz Building (Bollywood’s stock exchange) there is a lot of gossip floating around. Some naive, wet-behind-the-ears brokers are even insinuating that Yash wants Aamir to play a role in Dhoom-3 which will have Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Hrithik Roshan as the baddie.

The trade-sorts seem to think that only Yash can try and get Aamir and Hrithik together in a project. But sources close to Aamir veto the Dhoom-3 angle completely. In fact, no official quotes are available on this meeting between Bollywood’s most powerful actor and the veteran filmmaker.

The other buzz doing the rounds is that Aamir and the long-haired current craze, Imtiaz Ali, are in talks for a project. And knowing how fastidious these two are, the project may not take off before 2012.
