EXCLUSIVE: Zoya Akhtar meets Aamir Khan to initiate conversations on a new film

Over the years, Aamir Khan has spoken highly about Zoya Akhtar and has even expressed his will to collaborate with the filmmaker. In fact, Aamir has even given a voice-over to Zoya’s Dil Dhadakne Do. The duo have discussed several ideas over the years, but nothing really materialized. And now, Pinkvilla has exclusively learnt that Zoya Akhtar is yet again attempting to get Aamir Khan on board her next directorial.

Zoya Akhtar pitches an idea to Aamir Khan

According to sources close to the development, Zoya Akhtar recently met Aamir Khan and has initiated conversations on a new film. “Zoya is working on the idea of a slice-of-life film with a middle-aged protagonist. Much like all her films, this one too is a light-hearted subject with drama and emotions. While the story and concept draft is ready, the filmmaker is yet to spin that into the screenplay format,” revealed a source close to the development.

The source further informs that Aamir has liked the idea and is also looking to work with Zoya, as its an age-appropriate character for him. “However, Aamir is a perfectionist and will never commit to a film based on just the idea. He has asked Zoya to develop the story and come back for a narration. Aamir has also asked Zoya to reach out to him or his team for inputs, whenever she stuck through the writing process,” the source added.
