Why Aamir Opted Out



We told you earlier that Aamir Khan would be playing the role of astronaut Rakesh Sharma in Mahesh Mathai’s directorial film Salute. The film was being co-produced by Khan and Siddharth Roy Kapur’s Roy Kapur Films. Now we hear that Khan is no longer a part of the project.

Naturally, this set the grapevine on fire, which spawned much speculation about why Khan opted out. Well, we have the inside story from an industry source, who tells us that Mr Perfectionist plans to dedicate the next decade of his life to a series of movies that will form a franchise. Khan was to start work on Salute after Thugs Of Hindostan. Now, he will work on his home production, which he feels will take up all his time. So, that’s why he has opted out of the biopic.
