The only time that Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan acted in a movie ‘together’ was for Ashutosh Gowariker’s directorial debut Pehla Nasha, where both appeared in a cameo in a song. While speaking to the media on his 49th birthday, Shah Rukh revealed that Ashutosh had a script for Aamir and Shah Rukh but somehow it didn’t materialise. Vidhu Vinod Chopra, at the poster launch of PK, had said that he hopes someday Shah Rukh and Aamir will work together in a film.
On being asked if he would be open to working with Aamir, Shah Rukh said, “If there’s a director who has a two hero film, it will be good. For us to make it on our own, wo nahin hoga, I think. If there’s a director who has a two hero film, achcha rahega agar hum ek film Karen saath mein. We know each other for so long. We’ve worked together for such a long time, dosti hai, we’ve done world tours together. We also discuss a lot of things together.”
The prospect of a film with Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan is a bonanza in itself. It goes without saying that the business will be unprecedented and unimaginable. But if it ever happens, everything will surely be scrutinized very minutely. “It will be nice if there’s a producer-director, who can write, make a film for us and then jhelo the stress ki kaun behta rhai. Media will say, Aamir ne role kata diya, Shah Rukh ne usko edit kar diya. But I think it will be really nice if we get an opportunity to work together,” Shah Rukh said.
Shah Rukh Khan also clarified that he hasn’t been offered to play the negative lead in the Dhoom series yet. He likes the idea of bikes and the chase very much but he hasn’t been made an offer yet.
