Bollywood's Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan really knows how to pick his projects. The actor is known for his attention to detail while working on a film and only selects all his ventures with precision, never shooting for multiple films at the same time.

Khan, famous for his ethics and professionalism, really gives his all when prepping for a role. In the 2016 film Dangal, the actor made headlines for his brilliant transformation as Mahavir Singh Phogat. It was a hit at the box-office and if reports are to be trusted, we might see Khan in another sports drama pretty soon. Rumour has it that the Ghulam star might work with Shubh Mangal Saavdhan director RS Prasanna soon.

According to Pinkvilla, an insider shared, “The screenplay of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan followed the Aamir Khan narrative of LED (Laughter, Emotion, Drama) and the actor is himself a fan of the film. The two had met even before to discuss a subject, but things didn’t fall in place. But now, Aamir is in advanced talks with the director for his next and has basically loved the concept.”

The source added, “It’s not a quintessential sports film but something very ‘special’. One can bracket it as an inspirational, slice of life sports film and it falls right in the alley of brand Aamir. Being a film set against the backdrop of sport, it calls for a big ensemble. However, the casting will begin once Aamir officially signs the contract.”
