Do not let our headlines confuse you; we do not mean that Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan has been denied US visa. We are talking about another extremely talented actor, Aamir Bashir Khan, who was chosen to play the important role that of Shah Rukh Khan's younger brother in Karan Johar's upcoming MY NAME IS KHAN, but could not join the shooting in time due to a technical glitch.
Well, Aamir Bashir Khan needs no introduction. He came into prominence by playing memorable roles on television shows, such as Sony's ALPVIRAM and BHANWAR. He however made a mark on the silver screen after his portrayal of a powerful cop in the critically and commercially successful, A WEDNESDAY, for which he received praises from all quarters.
Aamir had been signed by Karan Johar to play Shah Rukh's younger brother but he could not make it to the US as his passport was on hold. And Jimmy Shergill, Aamir's co-star in A WEDNESDAY, has now replaced him. A thorough gentleman and a professional, Aamir wishes Jimmy luck and has absolutely no regrets in losing the role to Jimmy. But he does lament at the way a section of the intellectually bankrupt media made him out to be victim, whose US visa was denied because of him being a muslim, while another section went on to declare him a publicity-hungry novice!
Aamir now looks forward to other projects, which include a full fledged role in Vivek Agnihotri's HIMMAT SINGH KI SYMPHONY and a guest appearance in Aamir Khan's productions. But more on that later!
