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.

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.

his movie Khudaai which turned out to be an apology on
