Priyadarshan is goingthrough a rare problem in Bollywood for directors and that is problem of havingmore than one A Lister star interested in his project.
Priyadarshan is in adilemma with two A-listers vying to be a part of his new project. Sources claimthat Priyadarshan's next about AIDS, will do for HIV (in terms of evokingsympathy) what “Taare Zameen Par” did for dyslexia. " Percept Pictures,the film's producers believe that Aamir Khan after a successful TZP and a pan-India successrate at the box office would be apt for the role. But director Priyan hasalready discussed the role with his favourite Bollywood hero Akshay Kumar.Akshay, in turn, has loved the script and is more eager than ever to be a partof the project,"
"The AIDS script hasturned out wonderfully. But Priyan is caught in a dilemma. Akshay is keen ondoing the project. But he won't work with Percept, as he had a fall-out withPercept's head honcho Shailendra Singh over Nagesh Kukunoor's “Tasveer”.Meanwhile, Percept is keen on doing the AIDS film with Aamir Khan, who hasshown an interest in the film as well. Akshay on the other hand is not onlywilling to work immediately on the film but is also willing to produceit," quotes a source close to Priyadarshan. "Akshay is a very close friend. He is alsoPriyan's family now since Priyan's assistant Abhilash Nair is married toAkshay's cousin. More than that, Priyan and Akshay go back a long wayprofessionally," the tabloid quotes the same source. With the current producers, Percept keen to haveAamir on board and Amir interested in the project as well, the scales aretilted in Aamir's favour.
