Aamir Khan, known as Mr. Perfectionist is not having the best of his time in bollywood due to the performance of his last two films. His recently released film Laal Singh Chaddha, which was a remake of 1994 Hollywood blockbuster film, The Forrest Gump, failed miserably at the Box office. However, Aamir seems to have no worries after its failure as a remake and maybe this is the reason, he is citing another remake on board.
Aamir Khan has reportedly given the shooting dates to his next project, which is said to be an official remake of 2018 Spanish superhit film ‘Campeones’. It will be an comedy-sport drama, in which Aamir will play the role of an arrogant, selfish, self-absorbed basketball coach, who as a part of his community service is asked to coach a team of intellectually challenged basketball players.
The title of Aamir’s new film is yet under wraps and very little information is available about the star cast of the film. However, the Campeones remake will be directed by Shubh Mangal Saavdhan fame RS Prasanna. The shooting of the movie will begin in January next year.
Talking about the movie, a source told Peeping Moon, “Everything has started moving at a brisk pace again. Aamir has given his dates from January onwards, and will decide on the other aspects of the project once he returns from the US. The casting, location scouting, and all other pre-production work are also going on in full swing. Furthermore, the makers have brought on board the musical trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to score music for the film.”
This will be Aamir Khan’s third collaboration with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy after Dil Chahta Hai (2001) and Taare Zameen Par (2007).
Earlier, it was reported that Aamir Khan has shelved the Gulshan Kumar biopic titled ‘Moghul’. Aamir had signed this film a few years ago. But unfortunately, it turns out, after multiple delays and the change of cast. While Aamir will be busy with the Campeones remake, director Subhash Kapoor, who was on board to helm the biopic, has begun work on Jolly LLB 3.
Aamir Khan is not a newcomer in sports drama films, in fact the two sports films he has been a part of, broke many records and accolades. His first sports film, Lagaan (2001) made it to the final 5 in the Best Foreign Language Film in 74th Academy Awards (Oscars). Last time, Aamir played a sports coach in Dangal, which was released in December 2016. Dangal went on to become the highest grossing Indian films of all time with a lifetime collection of over ₹2200 crore.
