New Delhi, June 10 (Calcutta Tube) After the success of his production ventures ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and ‘Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na’, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has been flooded with scripts so much so that he had to set up a new section to take care of them.
‘Aamir Khan has a strange problem on his hand… his office is flooded with scripts and he does not know what to do. His acumen as a producer can be seen with the kind of films he has produced… people are now keen to get him to produce their films,’ said a source close to the actor.
The 45-year-old’s banner Aamir Khan Productions is getting around eight to 10 scripts everyday. And Aamir is making sure all the scripts get enough attention from him and his team.
‘His past films are testimonial of this fact… He has now asked his script department to start reading the scripts for him and get him the ones which they’d like him to read. As a mark of respect to the writers, the production doesn’t turn away any script,’ the source added.
Aamir, who turned producer with Academy award nominated ‘Lagaan’ in 2001, is taking his role as a producer so seriously that he has taken a break from acting until early next year to concentrate on his three home productions – ‘Delhi Belly’, ‘Dhobi Ghaat’ and ‘Peepli Live’.
