Aamir Khan appears to have gotten on well with Danny Boyle, the Oscar-nominated director of Slumdog Millionaire, at the film’s premier and party. The two could be seen talking freely together and Danny has said there are three people in Bollywood he would like to work with — Anil Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and of course Aamir. “I am very impressed with Anil. I would love to work with Anil again,” confirmed Danny, “I like your dancer Hrithik Roshan. I think he is extraordinary. Aamir Khan as well, is a wonderful filmmaker.” Danny has said that he would like to make a thriller set entirely at night in Mumbai. It’s the type of rich lyrical concept that could prove attractive to Aamir.
Rumour has it that Aamir, who is currently working on 3 Idiots, has given the nod to Ferrari Ki Sawaari and will begin work on the movie as soon as his stint on 3 Idiots is completed. The movie is about a little boy who sees a cricketer’s Ferrari motor car and dreams of becoming a cricketer.
In other news, Aamir has expressed his hope that all the major parties in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will field candidates worthy of the name. “I think public sentiment is that we are looking for leaders to be positive and progressive and take us forward and we would like to believe that you would do that and you can do that,” he says.
