On 14th March, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan will be celebrating his 55th birthday, and speculations are running rampant that Mr. Perfectionist may announce a new project to mark the occasion.

As we all remember that Khan announced his upcoming film, Laal Singh Chaddha, on his 54th birthday last year. Continuing the trend, the superstar may announce a new film on his 55th birthday as well. It is thought that the new project could be the Hindi remake of superhit Tamil film, Vikram Vedha (2017), originally starring R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi.

A well-placed industry source reveals to a publication, “Announcements on birthdays trend a lot and instantly get a lot of traction and are awaited. Saif is expected to play the role of Vikram in the film while Aamir is slotted to take on the role played by Vijay Sethupathi in the film of Vedha. It was only during these meetings on Vikram Vedha that Vijay got a chance to essay an important character in Laal Singh Chaddha as well. Aamir’s announcement is now awaited with bated breath. The only thing is will he be back in Mumbai and interact with the press on that day.”

If not the official remake of Vikram Vedha, Khan could go on to announce his ambitious project Mahabharata. Let’s wait and watch.
