Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has delivered a series of indelible performances in his prolific acting career, but one film that established him as the numero uno king of box-office was the A.R. Murugadoss directed Ghajini (2008).
Also starring Asin, Pradeep Rawat and late actress Jiah Khan in lead roles, the movie set the cash registers jingling and laid the foundation of the coveted ₹ 100 crore club in Bollywood. In the film, Khan played a businessman named Sanjay Singhania who develops anterograde amnesia following a tragic encounter which claims his girlfriend Kalpana’s life.
After eleven years of its release, we hear that a sequel to the blockbuster film is in the pipeline. Aamir Khan, who was recently seen in Thugs Of Hindostan (2018), may reportedly return to reprise his role.
“The titles have been registered primarily in Telugu and Hindi. Ghajini is a cult film in the sense that anyone today with a short-term memory loss is often referred to as a Ghajini. But then it is not clear whether the makers have approached director A.R. Murugadoss who had directed the film or Aamir Khan to be a part of it. We have to wait for the official announcement,” a well-placed source reveals.
Aamir Khan is also rumoured to be working on a mega-budgeted digital series on Mahabharat wherein he plays Lord Krishna. It will be interesting to know which project mounts the floor first.
