BOLLYWOOD: After Salman Khan, Karan Johar has secretly signed Aamir Khan for a Dharma Production.
Though the nature of the project is yet to be decided apparently Karan Johar, who has been relentless pursuing Aamir to come on board the Dharma bandwagon has been keen for years to just get the superstar on board.
Says a source, “Karan has offered several projects to Aamir including the recent Shuddhi.Aamir declined them, but insisted he was keen to work with Dharma Productions. Karan finally did what he had never done in the history of Dharma Productions. He invited Aamir to sign on with Dharma. The project would be finalized later according to Aamir’s preference and comfort.”
Apparently, the amount of money that Karan has agreed to pay Aamir for the privilege of having the exclusive actor in the Dharma roster could feed the famine-stricken children of Ethiopia for 20 years.
“We don’t know the exact figure. But it’s close to Rs 150 crores,” says a source.
