Aamir Khan may play the character of legendary actor and filmmaker Guru Dutt in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's next. The movie will be based on the Dutt's biography by Nasreen Munni Kabeer. Rakyesh however denies making such a film. He says Nasreen had once come to him with the idea and the two of them had a detailed discussion on the project but he is not working on this project at present.
Rakyesh whose Delhi 6 has had mixed reaction from the audience says the story of the Dutt need to be told with the right intention and sincerity. Om Aamir's name doing rounds for the character Guru Dutt the director said it is the script which should choose the actor. But the perfectionist actor surely can play such a powerful role.
Guru Dutt had himself made the movie Kagaz Ke Phool based on his own life which was appreciated by the audience. Later filmmaker Johnny Bakshi had cast Rajesh Khanna to play Guru Dutt in his movie Khudaai which turned out to be an apology on Dutt's life. Guru Dutt's son Arun Dutt is also collaborating with Nasreen for the biograpgy.
