Bollywood actor helping his writer-actor pal Amin Hajee realise his directorial ambitions

Aamir Khan’s close friend, actor-turned-writer Amin Hajee, will soon make his directorial debut.

Best remembered for his role in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s film, 'Lagaan', (where he played the drummer Bagha), Amin later penned Vikram Bhatt’s films such as 'Haunted', 'Dangerous Ishhq', and '1920: Evil Returns', apart from continuing with his acting assignments. He was also the co-writer for Gowarikar’s film, 'Swades'.

A source close to Hajee says that his directorial debut is a murder mystery. Aamir is said to have already read the script and he liked it. “He has also shared his inputs with Hajee,” says the source. There’s no word yet on whether Aamir will star in the film or not.

But the source says that casting for film will begin shortly.
