Aamir KhanHopefully, he is. The actor is reportedly considering two reality shows, both of which have social causes as their backdrop. Industry sources say that Siddharth Basu’s Big Synergy will produce the shows.

This company in the recent past has produced shows like Sach Ka Saamna, Dus Ka Dum and India’s Got Talent; and Kaun Banega Crorepati back in the day. “Aamir was approached to host Kaun Banega Crorepati Season Four. Basu had also approached him for another show, which had a social message behind it. The only reason Aamir would take up a TV show is to cater to a social cause. If KBC doesn’t work out, then he might accept the other show,” says our source.

While at one point KBC Season Four was expected to have a Slumdog Millionaire-ish format, where a contestant from the slums would be invited to play the game and take home a million rupees in one day, now, with a social message in mind, the show might have a new set of rules and regulations.

On being asked, Siddharth Basu of Big Synergy dismisses all news about Aamir Khan doing Kaun Banega Crorepati, but admits that if ever given the opportunity, he’d like to work with Aamir Khan. “He’s a powerful star and will bring great energy to any show he does. So, I want to work with him on a show whenever that’s possible.”
