Aamir Khan was offered 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'?

IANS

Superstar Salman Khan says his recent blockbuster "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" was first offered to his close friend Aamir Khan who suggested the "Dabangg" star39s name."Bahubali" director S.S. Rajamouli39s father K.V. Vijayendra Prasad wrote the initial script of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan". Salman wasn39t the first one to listen to the script, rather it was Aamir.At a special press conference on the success of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", Salman was asked if Aamir was offered the film first."Yes, Aamir told me that Prasad had come to him and he sent him to me. So this is just Aamir sahab39s generosity," Salman said.Asked about Prasad39s contribution to the film, Salman said: "The father of 39Bahubali39 director Rajamouli wrote the subject of 39Bajrangi Bhaijaan39. So the first question we asked him was why didn39t you ask your son to direct the film and why not there south India?"He said that was because there was a difference in language. He said if this film has to be made, it has to be made very authentically."Despite being from the southern film industry, Prasad is no stranger to Bollywood."He saw 39Ek Tha Tiger39, and keeps on telling me that he wants to meet my father. Before starting any film, he would watch 39Deewaar39, 39Zanjeer39, 39Sholay39 and only then begin the film," said Salman.According to a report, Aamir had certain issues with Prasad39s script and sought some modifications in it. However, Prasad refused to oblige.The report said Hrithik Roshan was the next one to be approached. He liked the script but felt that it was expensive. Salman eventually heard it and instantly gave him the signing amount.
