Actor Aamir Khan has a strange problem on his hand. My birdy from Bandra explains that considering the kind of movies he’s produced, like Lagaan, Taare Zameen Par, and the forthcoming Peepli Live, many writers and directors have approached him to produce their ‘novel’ subjects.
They are so impressed with his acumen as a producer that they feel they can’t get anyone better than him to back them. However, the rule at Aamir Khan Productions is that they have to respect everyone who comes in with a script and not turn away a single person.
So, the company gets about eight-ten scripts a day. There are so many scripts that Khan, who’s busy with three productions, can’t figure out what to do with them. Since he can’t read every script that comes to him, Khan has asked his script department to shortlist the ones they’d like him to read.
