Aamir Khan has inspired many people over the years, whether it’s been through his films or characters. He has been the person who is sought after for a good story, and his films ‘Dangal’ (2016) and ‘Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke’ (1993), are the latest stories to be the basis of two new television shows.

DNA reports that the show based on ‘Dangal’, which told the story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters, wrestlers Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat, will be titled ‘Kesar’. ‘Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke’ starred Juhi Chawla and Khan, and it’s television adaptation will be titled ‘Papa by Chance’.

On ‘Papa by Chance’, a source revealed, “It is not exactly the story of the Aamir Khan-Juhi Chawla starrer, but there is a similarity in terms of the hero becoming a father by chance. He is this aimless guy without any care in the world and when a tragedy occurs, his family decides to give him charge of three children to inculcate a sense of responsibility in him. So far, they have finalised Zebby Singh as the male lead and the three kids are Ishant Bhanushali of Hanuman fame, Arshifa Gunjan and Sidhartha Dubey. They are yet to finalise the female lead.”
