Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s brother Faisal, who is best remembered for his role in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander and Mela, is all set for his comeback on the silver screen. Faisal will return to films with Sharique Minhaj’s yet-to-be-titled movie. The working title of the movie is reportedly Mental.

Incidentally, Salman Khan-starrer box office debacle Jai Ho was also initially called Mental. The film, that will be shot in Surat, Daman, Saputara and Mumbai, will go on floors in August.

“It is a new-age film, especially for the generation next who are madly obsessed with one-sided affairs and who take wrong decisions which is very immoral. This film’s subject is different from the earlier two films we did together. It revolves around a one-sided love affair and the guy goes at all lengths to win his love. He even becomes mental. I believe in quality rather than quantity. I listen to the script first before giving my nod. When Sharique narrated the script and my role, I eagerly accepted to do,” an NDTV report quoted Faisal Khan as saying.

Apart from a small role in Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander, Faisal has also worked with Aamir in Mela that also starred Twinkle Khanna. He also made a special appearance in Aamir’s debut film, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak.

Faisal has earlier worked with director Sharique Minhaj in Chand Bujh Gaya and Chinar Daastaan-E-Ishq.
