Aamir and Tabu have not worked together before and they will be paired with each other in Priyadarshan’s serious film on AIDS.
A source tells us that Aamir has agreed to do the film as it is realistic and he wants to contribute to the cause of AIDS through this film, which is only 95 minutes long. Priyadarshan wanted to make this film last year, but he waited to see the reactions to his other realistic film, Kanchivaram. He got a positive response and now he is thrilled about his AIDS film. Aamir and Priyadarshan will team up for the first time if Aamir likes the script as much as the idea of the film.
Tabu hasn’t confirmed her presence in the film. She has previously worked with the director on Hera Pheri, Kaala Pani and Viraasat. She is presently busy with Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s The Legend of Kunal and romantic comedy Toh Baat Pakki.
Our source tells us that Priyadarshan will now start work on the script and he will take his time to finish it, because he wants the film to be as well-researched and sensitive as possible. He wants Aamir to be part of it because the audience knows that Aamir is very choosy about his scripts and only does quality films. Everybody goes to see an Aamir Khan film as he has one release a year. This could become another phenomenon like Taare Zameen Par.
Tabu and Aamir were part of Fanaa, but they didn't have any scenes with each other.
Kanchivaram won several awards internationally and the National Award in India. Let’s hope the AIDS film does equally well.
