Delhi Belly director Abhinay deo came to limelight after his film was a huge hit. The film's script writer Akshat Verma also rose to fame. Now the buzz is that he is back with a script for a dark situational comedy after a sabbatical of three years.
This time the script requires five young faces for the lead roles. Akshat has narrated the story to Aamir Khan.
"If all goes as planned, then Disney India and Aamir Khan Productions should produce the film. Aamir laughed throughout Akshat's narration. From the looks of it, he seemed impressed. He's likely to have subsequent meetings to take the project forward," says the source.
Aamir Khan who co-produced Delhi Belly has been contemplating of a sequel for almost three years but hasn't green-signalled yet.
This narration of new script just might be perfect for a sequel to the laugh riot, which can really turn fruitful for a new title.
"Akshat didn't discuss his wish-list of actors when he met Aamir but chances are that they may not repeat the cast of the previous film because the stories aren't connected," adds the source.
Aamir Khan, Akshat Verma and Siddharth Roy Kapur from Disney India were not available to comment.
