As fate has it, Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan are in the news again. The superstars are not at each other especially after bonding big time over the cinema multiplex-producers crisis but it seems Shahrukh has been tempted to step into Aamir's shoes.
The news is doing the rounds that Shahrukh is going to replace Aamir in a new film by Reema Kagtis. It is said that Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani had a fall-out with Aamir over terms of the film, as Aamir demanded a whopping fee and certain percentage of the profit. The fall-out happened on the sets of 3 Idiots where Ritesh had come to finalise the deal. He left the sets disappointed, as he couldn't buy the terms and conditions laid down by the actor.
It may be recalled that Farhan, Ritesh and Aamir were like family and their film Dil Chahta Hai was a huge hit. Now, it looks like their relationship will be affected by this turn out. Ritesh Sidhwani confirmed that they were supposed to work with Aamir but had fallen out over his unacceptable demands. However, he refused to confirm if Shahrukh is replacing Aamir. He said that they would announce very soon if Shahrukh is in the film.
On the other hand, sources close to Aamir claimed that the actor never works for money or friends. It added that he turned down the offer as he didn't like the script.
Well, nobody can hide the truth. Keep a watch on this space!
