2011 would be the year to remember, as Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan would be pitted against each other at a global stage. Both the actors will be seen in a Hollywood project next year. While Aamir Khan would be seen in Danny Boyle's Maximum City, SRK will be acting in Paul Schrader's Extreme City.
Interestingly, both the films are set to go on the floors next year.
Aamir Khan's Maximum City is based on the novel by the same name. The book got rave reviews when it was published in 2004. The book combines elements of memoir, travel writing as well as socio-political analysis of the history and people of Mumbai.
Shah Rukh Khan's Extreme City looks at the underbelly of Mumbai's slums and the people living in it. The film will be in English and Schrader spent some time living in Dharavi to get a feel of the place. Apart from Shah Rukh there will also be a Hollywood actor.
Anubhav Sinha would produce Extreme City.
