Aamir Khan has teamed up with director RS Prasanna for a new project. Reportedly, the film is an official adaptation of the Spanish sports dramedy, Champions and Khan will start his work on the film from January 20 and bring it during the Christmas 2024 weekend.
The latest development about this venture is that the makers have given it a tentative title – Sitaare Zameen Par.
A close source informed to Pinkvilla, “The basic plot of the film is about a sports coach bonding with and training a team of specially-abled kids, much like Taare Zameen Par, which chronicled the journey of a teacher and specially-abled student. The interpersonal relationships in the film and the evolution of lead characters is also very much like the cult classic, which led to Aamir and team zeroing down on the title Sitaare Zameen Par,”.
“The film will be a slice-of-life sport drama, that celebrates life. There is a lot of humor in the screenplay and it rides on a formula that Aamir has mastered over the years – Laughter, Emotions, and Drama,” the source added.
Meanwhile, Aamir Khan is also producing the Rajkumar Santoshi-directed Lahore, 1947 starring Sunny Deol in the lead. The film is expected to go on floors by December/January this year.
