Bollywood"s legendary veteran singer, Asha Bhosle has a piece of
advice for the perfectionist actor Aamir Khan. The versatile singer
wants him to play the role of George Washington, the first
president of the United States. She even wants him to win an Oscar
for that role.
The actor has always dreamt of winning an Oscar and he was even
close to achieving it with his movie Laagan in 2002. His
movie Taare Zameen Par was in the line for an Oscar too.
The actor attended the Oscar Awards ceremony with filmmaker
Ashutosh Gowariker that year. But, the film lost the award to
No Man"s Land from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bhosle has her own reasons for the suggestion, she says if the
foreign filmmakers can make films on India based themes like Gandhi
or Slumdog Millionaire, then the opposite is also
possible. She thinks Indian filmmakers can also make a film on
foreign themes and win an Oscar.
Asha Bhosle knows the ability of the actor and she believes
Aamir can do that. She said, “If the Englishmen are able to make
Oscar (winning) films like Slumdog Millionaire and Gandhi,
Aamir should also do a film on George Washington and finally win
Indian music maestro AR Rahman has already brought an Oscar to
India. But, that was for his music of British filmmaker Danny
Boyle"s movie on an Indian theme. Now, if any actor in the Indian
film industry can do it, he is Aamir Khan and the actor has proved
it time and again.
