Director Mansoor Khan opting to help out his cousin-cum-friend, Aamir Khan, for his upcoming home banner venture, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, seems to have got the rumour mongers busy. Just a few days back, media was abuzz about the talented and successful director of movies like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988), Jo Jeeta Woh Sikander (1992), Akele Hum Akele Tum (1995) and Josh (2000), making a fictional comeback. But the fact of the matter is that Aamir Khan requested Mansoor to help him out with his nephew Imran Khan's debut movie (as an actor), due to his 24x7 engagement with Taare Zameen Par.
Being the righteous kind of person that Aamir is, he did not want Imran to feel that he was adopting a non caring attitude towards his film and thus making him feel kind of left out. And so he sent Mansoor an SOS. Needless to add that Mansoor graciously agreed.
However, Mansoor Khan, who is leading a semi-retired life at a southern hill station, has no plans of occupying the director's chair once again. In fact, all the talks of him introducing Sarika and Kamal Hassan's daughter, Shruti, can only be termed as a figment of someone's fertile imagination.
