Aamir abandons Kashmiri Glasshouse
After Abbas Tyrewala of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Abhinay Deo of Delhi Belly and Anusha Rizvi of Peepli Live, Aamir Khan had, last year, picked another debutant director Deepak Diwedi, who was all set to make a film about friendship that cuts across religious and cultural barriers.
Tentatively titled Kashmiri Glasshouse, Diwedi's film, based on friendship between two Agrawallahs; a saree shop owner and a photo-frame shop owner, found a strong supporter in Aamir.
However, Aamir has asked Diwedi to wait for two years before his production house can take it further. This - after working on the film for close to a year, and even finalising a few actors like Chandan Roy Sanyal of Kaminey fame to play a pivotal role in it. According to a source, the actor had given his nod to Diwedi before his television show and the film was scheduled to go on floors around November last year.
Asked the reason for Aamir's sudden U-turn, the source said, "No one quite knows... Diwedi has started approaching other production houses with his script."
