It’s a known fact that Salman Khan and Aamir Khan are the best of friends. If further proof was needed for their comradeship, then Salman Khan recommending Aamir Khan for his ‘Bodyguard’ director Siddique’s movie will serve as one.
Siddique made his Bollywood debut with ‘Bodyguard’, which went on to become one of the biggest hits in Bollywood. Ever since then Siddique has been working on the script of his second movie and was keen to repeat the ‘Bodyguard’ success by signing Salman Khan.
But when Salman Khan read the script he told Siddique that it was fantastic script but Aamir Khan suited the role better than him. He also the told the director that he is busy with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Dabangg 2’ and wouldn’t be able to give the required dates.
“But after hearing the idea, Salman felt that it was more suited for Aamir. Besides, he also conceded that he's currently tied up with prior commitments like ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Dabangg 2’. So even if he wished to, he can't commit to it. He's even believed to have said that he would talk to Aamir if Siddique wanted him to,” said a source to a daily.
When contacted Siddique denied the report and said, “Only after I complete the writing part can I figure out which actors can be considered for the cast. So it's too early to talk about the casting.”
He though decided to divulge a bit of information on the movie.
“It's an action-romance with some humor and also a thriller element. That's all I can say at this point,” he concluded.
