Director Kundan Shah is planning to cast Bollywood perfectionist Aamir Khan in his next project titled Tycoon. However, due to some reason, Shah wants to keep the budget of the movie within Rs 5 crore, which won’t be possible if he has to pay Aamir his present market value. So, the director has probably expressed his desire to Aamir to consider some cut in the fee.
The director is planning to develop Tycoon in the line of his 1983 comic movie Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, which is still regarded to be a benchmark for black comedy in Hindi cinema.
The project of Kundan has excited and tempted Aamir but he wants it to be like any other big budget movie of him and he should be paid the usual fee.
Recently, Kundan Shah has been seen visiting Aamir Khan several times, probably to discuss the script. Confirming the news, Shah stated that he has talked with Aamir for this comedy flick titled Tycoon and it would be of the same genre of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron. He said that the movie will have an added flavor of romance also.
Kundan added that if he pays Aamir his market price, it would turn out to be another 3 Idiots and he has no such plans.
Aamir has not yet shown green signal officially. Only time will tell if Aamir considers the fact and goes ahead with Kundan’s Tycoon.
