Tanu Weds Manu distributor Sunil Bohra has claimed that Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan are ready to act in the remake of John Travolta starrer Face-Off. But Aamir and Saif have no clue about it. Also, Bohra has no official rights to remake the John Woos film.
He approached Sanjay Gupta, an English remake fanatic, with the offer to remake Face Off for him.
"Bohra told Gupta that Aamir Khan would do the remake of Face Off. He even told Gupta that Aamir would arrange to get Saif Ali Khan on board for the second role," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
Earlier, he had approached Wake Up Sid director Ayaan Mukerji for the same. "Bohra told Ayaan that he should direct the remake of Face Off for him with Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan in the lead roles," informed the source.
However, Bohra denied the news. "Mere paas Face Off ke rights nahin hai. Aur Aamir koi remake mein kaam karta hi nahi. Main Ayaan aur Gupta se nahin mila hoon. (I Don't have Face Off rights. Aamir doesn't work in any remake. I didn't meet Ayaan and Gupta)," he told the tabloid.
But Sanjay Gupta confirmed the reports, "Bohra had come with the offer. After that, he never got back."
"Aamir was never in talks with Bohra for a remake of Face Off. How can Bohra go and speak to anybody outside like this," a source close to Aamir told the tabloid.
