Aamir to act in Priyadarshan's AIDS film

Perfectionist Aamir Khan has signed his next project. He is likely to feature in Priyadarshan’s film based on AIDS.

"The project on AIDS is on, but the script is not yet ready... (I had) too many schedules and things to do so couldn't finish the script. I had discussed it with Aamir earlier and that time he wanted to do the film," the director told.

Priyadarshan is working on his current project, 'Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal' and once he completes the film, he would start working on the untitled AIDS film. The film will be devoid of songs, comedy and commercial trappings.

"I will complete the script first and approach him (Aamir) again. If he has time he will do it," the National Award winning director said.

Filmmakers Revathy and Onir had explored this subject (AIDS) in their films 'Phir Milenge' (2004) and 'My Brother Nikhil' (2005), respectively.

Both films failed to create magic at the box office but they received critical acclaimation.
