Buzz is that the 51-year-old actor will be seen in the biopic on Sharma. When prodded further whether script of Rakesh Sharma biopic is the one film that he is reading, Aamir said, “It is not fair to talk about a film till I sign it. There are lot of people who approach me and they do it with confidence. When someone narrates me the script I don’t tell anyone about it. And if I don’t do it (film), then it is said Aamir rejected the film and why he did and all these things come up.”
