RS Prasanna and Aamir Khan
After considerable mulling over which film to front next, Aamir Khan has finally decided to proceed with the remake of the 2018 Spanish hit, Campeones. Reportedly, he wanted to see how Laal Singh Chaddha, his adaptation of Forrest Gump fared. That*s why RS Prasanna*s directorial venture, initially slated to roll this month, was put on hold. Now, AK has not only made up his mind to go ahead with it, but has also allotted dates from January 2023. The pre-production work, which was halted in the interim, has resumed. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have been roped in to compose the soundtrack for the yet-untitled project. Currently on a holiday in the US, Aamir will get completely engrossed in the film as soon as he is back in the bay.
