    Post Rang De Basanti and Fanaa we haven't heard much from Aamir Khan on the filmi scene. However the actor, off late, has been pretty busy with acting, production and rumouredly also ghost direction.

    Firstly he is producing Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na that marks the directorial debut of script writer Abbas Tyrewala. Recently rumours had it that the film has been renamed to Main Hoon Na Maqbool. "This is hilarious", exclaims Abbas Tyrewala. Perhaps the rumour originated from the fact that Abbas happens to be the writer of both Main Hoon Na and Maqbool. "But Main Hoon Na Maqbool is a better title. I should have thought of it before", he adds teasingly. The title of the film is confirmed as Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na.

    Speaking about the cast of the film Abbas says, "Aamir's nephew Imraan Khan will be seen as the male lead. He is Aamir's sister's son. I can't divulge much about him at this moment, but he is definitely one actor to watch out for!" Genelia D'souza of Tujhe Meri Kasam and Masti fame has been finalized to play the female lead.

    The film about young love is almost reaching completion. Says Tyrewala, "We will be shooting continuously till the first week of April. A few months of post-production after that and hopefully then the movie will be ready for release!"

    So is Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na a period film? "No, it is not a period film," says Tyrewala, "But it is not very modern as well. It has sensibilities of five years back." While Aamir is producing the film, PVR Cinemas is presenting it. A. R. Rahman is composing the music for this film.

    Being an Aamir Khan production we question Abbas if there is any possibility of Aamir Khan making a cameo in the film and he confirms, "Aamir himself will not be seen anywhere in the film. However there are a lot of other actors in the film who will make a special appearance including Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Arbaaz Khan and Arshad Warsi"

    Apart from Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Aamir is also producing a film called Tare Zameen Par that is being directed by Amol Gupte. Aamir plays the male lead of this film. He will also be starring in the remake of Tamil film Ghajini that pairs him with Ayesha Takia. Finally there is Mani Ratnam's Lajjo where he is cast opposite Kareena Kapoor.
