Even though they are yet to work together in a film, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan are all set to share the stage for an upcoming event in Mumbai. Later this week, the actors will launch the trailer of filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s maiden Hollywood venture - Broken Horses - that has been directed, written and produced by him.
"Aamir and Amitabh sir will be seen at the event as both of them share a great equation with Vidhu. They have worked with him on multiple occasions," says an insider. Aamir’s 3 Idiots (2009) and PK (2014) were produced by Chopra.
Bachchan starred in Eklavya: The Royal Guard, which was directed by him. The veteran actor is also part of an upcoming film that is being directed by Bejoy Nambiar and produced by Chopra. However, currently, the filmmaker is looking forward to the release of Broken Horses that stars Spanish actor María Valverde and American star Thomas Jane.
Confirming the story, Chopra says, "I am very grateful to Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan who have agreed to launch the trailer of my first Hollywood film. It is a very special film for me, and special people launching the trailer will make the moment even better."
Recently, the filmmaker, his wife, Anupama Chopra, and son, Agni, were diagnosed with Swine Flu. They are believed to have recovered from the illness now.
