Aamir and Salaman Wants "Andaz Apna Apna" Magic again

Aamir Khan not just wants to act in the film but he also wants to produce it.

Way back in mid 90s, Aamir and Salman Khan had teamed up for Rajkumar Santoshi ’s rip-roaring comedy ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ that had left its audiences with aching bellies. Now, about 14 years after that, Aamir is in talks with Santoshi to make another film on the same lines.

The movie would naturally star Aamir and Salman in the lead roles. Aamir himself has offered to produce the flick.

The original film was about two guys who want to get wealthy by marrying a rich girl. But the rich girl swaps her place with another girl (a poor one) to win the love of a man for her own sake and not because of her money. What follows is a hilarious confusion of identities.

Santoshi would script the second version of the film but he says it won’t necessarily be a sequel. It would, of course, be difficult to pick up the thread of the story from where it ended in the 1994 movie. And new heroines would obviously be needed for the two heroes.

According to sources, Aamir has been very eager to produce the ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ sequel ever since his friendship with Salman became thicker again.

Aamir is reportedly also thinking of producing another film on farmers’ suicides. It would be a serious, issue-based film starring a host of actors from the theatre world.

So far, all the movies Aamir has produced have been hits at the box-office, his nephew’s Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na being the latest.
