Aamir Khan, who was extremely excited about doing a sci-fi-adventure to be directed by debutant Nitya Mehra has reportedly opted out of the film since he was unhappy with the money that he was being offered.
According to TOI, Aamir Khan was very keen on working on a science fiction and even had several script narrations with Nitya. Aamir was very impressed with the script, but couldn't agree when it came to remuneration with the production house and parted ways. Now the filmmakers are trying to find a replacement and are even contemplating casting Hrithik Roshan in the film.
It was earlier decided that Deepika Padukone would be cast opposite Aamir Khan; however since Aamir is out, it is not known whether the makers would look out for another face depending on who the lead hero is.
Aamir Khan has time and again said that he cares more about the kind of films he does rather than the remuneration. In fact, in Season 4 Koffee With Karan, Aamir Khan went on to say that he is the least paid leading actor in Bollywood as compared to his counterparts Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan. So, we can't help but wonder why it didn't work out!
