Aamir Khan is "perfect" for Danny Boyle's next

"It's a fantastic script and we had a very good meeting with Aamir Khan," the Oscar-winning director said after a meeting with the actor here.
"I don't think Aamir is definite for it yet, but he is obviously perfect for the role," Boyle added.

The director who had won the Oscar for the best director for his Mumbai-based potboiler, had met Khan at the premiere of 'Slumdog' and had expressed his wish to work with the 44-year-old actor.
"I have met Aamir before and I think he is unbelievable and a very special person," Boyle added.

The director was also very impressed with Khan's 'Taare zameen Par' and had praised him as a good filmmaker.
Though Boyle refused to give further details about the film, it is said to be named 'Bombay Velvet' and earlier reports suggested that the director wanted to rope in Shah Rukh Khan.

Like 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'Bombay Velvet' too is based on the city of Mumbai and depicts real life incidents. 'Dev D' director Anurag Kashyap will reportedly helm the project.
