Aamir Khan to star with Kate Winslet?May 21st, 2009 - 7:05 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 21 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is set to star in his first Hollywood film alongside Oscar winning actress Kate Winslet, if reports are to be believed.
Helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Pan Nalin, the film will show the funny side of an Indian mental asylum in 1947 during the partition of India. The film is based on a Pakistani play “Toba Tek Singh” by Sadat Hasan Manto, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Winslet is lined up for the film but if she rejects, Nalin has plans to approach actress Rachel Weisz to play the role.
“Either Kate or Rachel will be doing my film. I will be meeting both of them after my Cannes trip to finalise the casting. Either of them will be able to do justice to this marvellous story,” said Nalin.
Aamir is said to have been impressed with the script and will play the mentally retarded person.
