A brand new role for Aamir

Son rise

Jackie didn’t confirm it, but said that to be launched by Aamir would be a big privilege for his son.

“Aamir and I have known each other for years. We’re fond of one another. I was shooting for Ananth Mahadevan’s ‘Life’s Good’ in Mahabaleshwar. Aamir has a home there. He dropped in to see me twice. As far as launching Tiger goes, I’d be really happy if it happens,’’ said Jackie.

Even Subhash Ghai has shown a keen interest in the boy. In fact, Ghai’s interest goes back to Tiger’s childhood when he had made a pledge he would launch his friend and discovery Jackie’s son whenever the boy was ready to take the plunge.

But now, there is a very interesting twist in Tiger’s tale, with Bollywood’s resident maverick-producer Aamir showing a keen interest in launching Tiger. When asked about his son, Jackie said, “Tiger has turned out...decent. Hasn’t he? Yes, he has met Aamir Khan. To be launched by Aamir would be a big privilege.”
