Aamir Khan's latest release 'Thugs of Hindostan' is still doing business in overseas theatres. But the movie has to draw a early closure in deshi theatres after receiving bad reviews from critics. Aamir Khan himself responded to media and said this he failed to entertain as his every role is an experiment and most of the time public acceptance decides the luck. The film also casted Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles. However the Khan will be next seen in the project Mahabharata. Anjum Rajabali approached Aamir for his next film "Salute". But a project like "Mahabharata" already booked the most of the time next year. The film is a biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma. The makers are now trying to feature Shah Rukh Khan in lead role.

"I have been very excited about the project. Like Aamir, I have been a big fan of Rakesh and now he is a good friend also. Frankly speaking, I was very keen that Aamir do it and he, at that moment, had liked it," Anjum told. He also added, "We had discussed it a lot. We had a lot of hopes for it but unfortunately (there was) the larger project of 'Mahabharata', which he was consumed by."
