Would you buy Bollywood's chocolate hero Imran Khan as the snot-nosed Saleem Sinai of Midnight's Children.

Well, we don't know about you, but author Salman Rushdie is convinced that Imran can play Saleem successfully in a Deepa Mehta adaptation of the historically rich novel. Of course, the young actor doesn't have the special nose that Saleem has in the book, but Rushdie is of the opinion that Imran would be the best person for a cinematic version of the book. Imran currently aces the shortlist of actors for the role.

Telling us more about the film, Deepa Mehta said, ''My friend Rushdie will take an active part in the casting for the film. He will also look into who plays Saleem, and quite approves of Imran. He is yet to meet Imran though, to take a final call.''

Apparently, Rushdie feels Imran is a one of Bollywood's most glamorous superstars. To this, Deepa said, ''I personally feel that if an actor is good and suited to the role he plays, then his popularity will only add to the film's equity.''

Interestingly, Imran's uncle Aamir Khan's 1947 EARTH, which was directed by Deepa was one of his best films.
