According to sources, "Neeraj Vora, who has written super hit comedies right from Rangeela to Hera Pheri and has also directed Phir Hera Pheri, is an old friend of Aamir. He had recently approached Aamir with a comedy script. But so impressed was Aamir on hearing about the script and his role in it that he immediately volunteered to produce it under his banner as well. Vora was left speechless with joy as he had never expected such a thing coming from Mr. Perfectionist for him."
Not many are aware that the recent Tata Sky commercial where Aamir has dressed up partially as a male and partially as a female is directed by Neeraj. Their association goes long back to more than a decade now. Neeraj had even acted as Aamir's best friend in Mann. He has directed two films till date, Akshay Kumar starrer Khiladi 420 and Hera Pheri sequel Phir Hera Pheri. He is presently directing two films, Familywala starring Arjun Rampal and Diya Mirza and Anil Kapoor's home production Shortkut – The Con is on starring Akshaye Khanna, Amrita Rao and Arshad Warsi. His Aamir film is most probably all set to go on floors in early 2010.
Presently three of Aamir Khan Productions' films are underway. Delhi Belly starring nephew Imran Khan, Dhobi Ghat being directed by his wife Kiran Rao starring Prateik Babbar and a film on farmer suicides starring Aamir himself alongside Raghuveer Yadav.
