Aamir replaced Akshaye Khanna in Taare Zameen Par

Aamir Khan’s much awaited film Taare Zameen Par which is to be released on December 21 has been into loads of controversies already. From who is the original director of the film to Aamir’s alleged tiff with the media and thus his decision to release his film’s promo on the internet! This talked about film based on dyslexic children has had enough unwanted exposure much before its release.

To add to the hype and intrigue surrounding this promising film, a reliable source exclusively revealed to Indiatimes Movies that it was Akshaye Khanna who was considered to play the role of a teacher who looks after dyslexic children in Taare Zameen Par instead of Aamir Khan as Amol Gupte (the then director of the film) had Akshaye on his mind first.

Apparently Amol had requested Aamir to put him through to Akshaye as he wanted Akshaye to read the script. However, since Aamir was producing the film, he expressed his desire to go through the script himself first. As soon as Aamir read the script, he fell in love with it and requested Amol to cast him instead.

We spoke to Amol Gupte about the issue and he confirmed the news saying, “As far as casting is concerned, yes, I wanted to meet Akshaye Khanna initially but Aamir expressed his desire to play the lead and the rest is history.”

We wonder what Akshaye must be thinking of now.

Not fair towards Akshaye Khanna. I like Amir Khan a lot as an actor. But, he should have let his onscreen-Dil Chahta Hai friend Akshaye Khanna to do Taare Zameen Par. Amir Khan could have produced and Akshaye Khanna could have done the role of a teacher. It would be a refreshing cast and crew. Anyway, I am waiting for both of them to work again together onscreen after Dil Chahta Hai. They shared a fantastic chemistry in the film.

Yeah. But one can't say Aamir was unfair toward Akshaye. It's not as if he snatched the role from Akshaye. AK didnt even get the role offered. Aamir produced the movie, liked the role, so offered to do the movie himself, what's the problem with that?

I like how there are so many directors who want to work with Akshaye.

Me, I would love Amir Khan to work with Akshaye Khanna after giving best performance in Dil Chahta Hai.

I have seen the trailer and promos of Taare Zameen Par...I wish that Akshaye Khanna did this sensitive role as caring teacher towards kids. I also wish that Akshaye Khanna does a movie for kids.

I agree with u. But, I wonder why don't Aamir Khan and Akshaye Khanna appear together in a flick after Dil Chahta Hai. They will give their terrific performance together in other films . If possible, a able director can interestingly direct them in a remarkable way.
