Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan to share screen for a commercial


Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan may not have shared the silver screen in their long career span, but the two superstars are likely to team up on the small screen.

While Shah Rukh has been roped in as the host for the Indian version of Ted Talks titled ‘TED Talks India: Nayi Soch’, Aamir has just done a campaign for the same television channel on which the talk show will be aired. As both the actors are working for the same TV channel, they might as well come together for a commercial or brand campaign, on the lines of Shah Rukh and Salman Khan’s promo for ‘Bigg Boss 10’.

A DNA report quoted a source as saying, “Aamir playing a sweet seller who is helped by his daughters in the shop got rave reviews. This has encouraged the channel’s brand team to try and rope in both Shah Rukh and Aamir together. What a coup that would be!”

Interestingly, Shah Rukh and Aamir attended the 50th birthday bash of entrepreneur Ajay Bijli in Dubai last month, where the duo posed together for a photograph for the first time in 25 years. Shah Rukh had shared their picture on his Twitter timeline and wrote, “Known each other for 25 years and this is the first picture we have taken together of ourselves. Was a fun night.” It was indeed phenomenal. 

But it seems that the two actors dropped a major hint when they posed together it was no co-incidence.

On the work front, Shah Rukh will be next seen in Imtiaz Ali’s romantic drama tentatively titled ‘The Ring’ opposite Anushka Sharma. The film is slated to release on August 11. He will also make a cameo appearance in Salman’s ‘Tubelight’.

Aamir, on the other hand, will be seen in an extended cameo in ‘Secret Superstar’ starring Zaira Wasim of ‘Dangal’ fame. He will also play cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma in the latter’s biopic, besides ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.
