Young film maker Reema Kagti is aware that many are surprised about Aamir's decision of being directed by her in a film, a suspense drama which would go on floors early next year.

"Well, I am sure lot of people are surprised out there. They could perhaps be thinking that how come my movie got precedence over the ones being designed by others", smiles Reema who originally hails from Assam but now has made Mumbai as her home.

Meanwhile the audience has been caught unaware, the trade is surprised, the industry is amazed and the detractors shocked as Aamir Khan, whose last release (3 IDIOTS) was close to a year back, hadn't signed a film for ages. In fact work on 3 IDIOTS had begun more than two and a half years ago and ever since then, there were speculations galore around what would he do next. Today, he has agreed not just to work with Reema but had also stepped in to co-produce it along with Farhan Akhtar & Ritesh Sidhwani (of Excel Entertainment).

Concurs a veteran industry insider, "Aamir Khan being Aamir Khan, he has thrown a complete surprise here. Though there were talks about Yash Chopra, Karan Johar and Vidhu Vinod Chopra lining up projects for him to pick and choose, his decision to go ahead and firm up plans to work with one film old Reema Kagti (who saw good critical as well as reasonable commercial success coming her way with her debut effort HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD) is a development that no one could see as coming."

"I am not surprised though. I was in talks with Aamir for quite some time after all", says Reema who has also co-written Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer ZINDAGI NAA MILEGI DOBARA for close friend and colleague Zoya Akhtar and had also made a 'blink and you would miss' appearance in ROCK ON, "Now that we have locked the script, it is time to set the ball rolling."
