In a recent interview Aamir Khan has finally confirmed the rumor that he has directed his next film, Taare Zameen Par. Original director Amol Gupte, a close friend of Aamir, did not live up to the expectations of Aamir, who is also producing the film. Therefore, he gave him the script back and told him to use it with another producer and actor. But Amol came back to Aamir and told him to direct the movie as to not waste any time looking for a new director. Aamir agreed upon it and became the star/director/producer of the film.
We all know an Aamir Khan movie is special, as they are rare to come by. Now this one is even more special as it is his directorial debut. We know what to expect from Aamir the actor, but we do not know what we are going to get from Aamir the director. If he is anywhere near what he is as an actor, we expect nothing but the best. Taare Zameen Par is slated for a December 21, 2007 release. Let us hope for the best!
