Aamir Khan, the Anna Hazare in Bollywood???
Anna Hazare and his message of anti-corruption has managed to plant ideas into the minds of Bollywood producers.
Buzz has it that while director Prakash Jha has already planned to make a movie with Amitabh Bachchan playing Hazare, well-known producer Madhu Mantena (who produced Ghajini) has purchased the rights of an old Telugu film that revolves around the anti-corruption theme.
Titled Tagore, the film starred Chiranjeevi as an anti-corruption crusader who starts a vigilante organisation called Anti-Corruption Force.
When contacted, Mantena said he is in the process of acquiring the rights for the film. “I love the title and I love the message of the film. I think it’s far more relevant today than it was when it was made seven years ago.”
Interestingly, Tagore itself is the remake of a 2002 Tamil film called Ramanna. AR Murugadoss, who directed Ghajini for Mantena, had also written Tagore.
According to sources, Mantena wants to cast Aamir Khan in the role of the anti-corruption crusader. While not denying this bit of news, Mantena refused to talk about the subject. He said, “I can’t talk about the casting. It’s too early.”...being a human...
