Fakenews On Aamir Directing SRK….No, Sorry Aamir Is Not Directing Shah Rukh Khan

Entertainment  journalism is going  rapidly from fact to  fiction to fantasy. The latest brainwave  of a desk job is the “news” that Aamir Khan will direct Shah Rukh Khan in the latter’s cameo appearance   in Laal Singh Chadha

For those who came  in late, Laal Singh Chadha  is  the  Hindi remake  of  the  Tom Hanks’ classic Forrest Gump. It’s being directed  by Advait Chandan who earlier  directed Aamir in Secret Superstar.

The story that Aamir will direct Shah Rukh’s  cameo is  vehemently denied by  Aamir’s spokesperson.“This  is  an insult to  Advait who  is a very capable director. He will direct every single frame  of  Laal Singh Chadha,” says  the spokesperson.

So we wonder where  such wild stories come  from!

Aamir has always been choosy. The absolutely unexpected failure  of  Thugs  Of  Hindostan  in 2018  made Aamir even more  yes-wary. He wasmulling over  various scripts  for  months until  he finally  said yes  to Lal Singh Chaddha  a  remake  of  the  Tom Hanks classic Forrest  Gump where he  reunites with his 3  Idiots   co-star Kareena  Kapoor  Khan. There was  no  Aamir release  in 2019 and  none  in  2020 either.

 It is not so  unusual for Bollywood  to go through an Aamir-less  year. But a  year without Shah Rukh Khan was unimaginable until 2019Apparently he  had been reading at an average,3 scripts  every day.  Whenever he has worked with new directors(new for him , that is) like Maneesh Sharma(Fan)  and Gauri Shinde(Dear Zindagi) the  film has underperformed. And  yes,  no  SRK in 2020 either. Go,sulk.
