Aamir Khan At The Secret Superstar Success Meet


Biopics have become the flavour of the season in Bollywood. Rumours are buzzing that Aamir Khan’s been approached to play the role of controversial guru Rajneesh Osho.
This piece of news went viral after the release of Netflix documentary Wild Wild Country based on Osho and the cult’s rise in Oregon, US. Karan Johar had apparently planned to make a film on Osho but the plan never materialised.
According to DNA, Shakun Batra, the director of Kapoor & Sons, has penned a script on the life of Osho that may be made into a web-series. And none other than Aamir Khan is said to have shown interest in the project.
An insider says, “Everyone knows what a great sense of script Aamir has. When he got to know about this one, it immediately piqued his interest. In fact, he is said to have visited Los Angeles to meet the officials of the streaming channel. This is definitely an important development.”
Aamir also has his ambitious project Mahabharat on the cards. “This project may happen before the Mahabharat,” says the source.
Alia Bhatt, who has worked with Shakun in Kapoor & Sons and is a close friend of the director, has apparently heard the script. The source adds, “She, too, has loved it. It’s not known whether she will be a part of the project, but she believes it’s a great script.”
