Mumbai, Nov. 11 -- Much has been written about Aamir Khan's next, which marks the actor's second collaboration with director Rajkumar Hirani after 3 Idiots (2009). The fact that Aamir is reportedly playing an alien in the film has created a lot of buzz.
Now, there is a rumour doing the rounds that the story sounds a lot like the Kevin Spacey starrer K-PAX (2001).
"It seems like Aamir is on some kind of a mission in this film that is similar to the one Spacey's character was on in the Hollywood movie," says an industry source.
Apparently, there is also some mystery around him on the lines of what is shown in K-PAX. In the Hollywood movie, Prot (Spacey) - a patient at a mental hospital - claims to be from another planet. His psychiatrist tries to help him, but later begins to doubt his own explanations.
When contacted, the studio that is co-producing the film refused to comment. Hirani also remained unavailable for a comment. However, the film's official spokesperson says, "No one is aware of Aamir Khan's character in the film. In fact, at a press conference recently, Aamir and Raju even laughed off the rumours that the actor was playing a drunkard, alien or madman."
