Buzz in Bollywood has it that Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan, who was last seen in his home production Secret Superstar (2017), has signed his next. It is being widely reported that his next movie will be a biopic on controversial spiritual guru Osho, also known as Acharya Rajneesh.
The latest we hear that Khan will start shooting for the movie in December. He will begin the first schedule of the movie in Pune. The film will be helmed by Shakun Batra, whose last film Kapoor & Sons (2016) won loads of appreciation and adulation. Karan Johar will bankroll the movie under Dharma Productions in association with Aamir Khan Productions.
“Yes, it’s happening for sure. Shakun Batra, the writer, and director of such exciting Dharma Productions films as Kapoor & Sons and Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012), is going to be directing the Osho biopic and has reportedly been working on its script for the past eight months. There was talk that Karan Johar might collaborate with Shakun to make this into web series but that is apparently not true. Shakun and Aamir are now convinced this is a film for the big screen audience,” reveals a source to an entertainment portal.
Meanwhile, Aamir Khan is busy with his upcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
