Mumbai, Mar 14: Aamir Khan says his meeting with Shah Rukh Khan was “casual” and the duo did not discuss any projects.
Recently, Shah Rukh tweeted a picture along with Aamir and the team of Netflix, which started speculation that both of them might be coming on board for a project.
“No, I met him (Shah Rukh) twice in the last few months. Once at Ajay Bijli’s party, where we met after a long time. It felt wonderful spending time with him.
“Recently there was a get together at his place. We are meeting casually, just as friends. We haven’t discussed work,” Aamir said at a special press conference on his birthday.
The actor, who turned 52 today, is currently gearing up for his forthcoming “Thugs of Hindostan”. There were reports that the actor has been approached for a biopic on Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to fly into space.
The film is reportedly titled be “Saare Jahan Se Achcha”, as a tribute to Sharma’s description of India from the space. But Aamir says he is only working on ‘Thugs’ now and hasn’t signed anything else. The actor, however, is excited to work with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in “Thugs...”
“This year I am very excited for one thing. I am a fan of Amitji and this is my first chance of working with him. I am so excited... The kind of actor that he is, the level that he has... I am sure I will learn a lot from him and it will be a very memorable experience for me,” Aamir says.
The actor denied that the heavy moustache that he is sporting these days is the final look for the movie. “We are still experimenting with different looks. This is one among them. But this is not the final look.” PTI
