Aamir Khan opts out of acting in ‘Champion’; to produce the film instead

After the debacle of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, it seems Aamir Khan is carefully contemplating his next move.

If rumours are to be believed, Khan has opted out of acting ‘Champion’ and will instead produce the film under Aamir Khan Productions, along with Sony Pictures India. It will be directed by RS Prasanna. The film has been described as a slice-of-life film based on the Spanish film, ‘Campeones’ (Champions).

A source told PinkVilla, “Aamir and Sony had multiple meetings over the last few months and finally came to a common ground that they would team up on something bigger. He met the Sony bosses even during his trip to the US. While he has stepped back from acting in Campeones in the capacity of an actor, he will continue to be associated with the film as a producer.”

The source further stated, “The script, and the screenplay is locked and the team will soon move onto the pre-production stage and location scout. They are all very keen to start the inspirational sports drama soon and an actor will be locked by end of this year,” added the source. The film will now be produced by Aamir Khan Productions with Sony Pictures International Productions and 200 Not Out Productions. “If everything goes as planned, it will hit the screens by end of 2023.”
