Actor Aamir Khan announced ‘Sitaare Zameen Par’ and ‘Lahore: 1947’ last year. In the former, apart from producing, Aamir is playing the male lead while Genelia D’Souza will be seen as the female lead. The film will be directed by RS Prasanna. He will also be producing the latter which will be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and the film will have Sunny Deol as the lead. As per the latest report, the shooting of both films will commence in February.
A source told Pinkvilla that Aamir Khan has already been in the prep mode for ‘Sitare Zameen Par’ for the past few months and is all set to take the film on floors from February 2. ”He has finally zeroed down on his look for the film and has done several reading sessions with the ensemble cast.”
“It’s going to be a marathon schedule for Sitaare Zameen Par and the actor has allotted 70 to 80 working days on the film. With a lot of time invested in pre-production, this would be among the fastest films that Aamir would deliver to the audience, the source said.
Talking about ‘Lahore 1947’, the source further said, “The film is a partition drama by Rajkumar Santoshi with Sunny Deol in the lead. Lahore 1947 goes on floors on February 12, 2024. The set work has already begun in Mumbai to recreate the era gone by. Multiple big sets to recreate India around the partition era are being put up.”
It also marks the reunion of Aamir Khan and Santoshi after their iconic cult classic, Andaz Apna Apna.
