Mumbai: At present time in Bollywood, superstars are seen romancing women half their age but '3 Idiots' actor Aamir Khan has set a new trend by playing a father on-screen in films like 'Talash' and the recent hit 'Dangal'.
Few months back Amir, who is father of three kids was questioned if he would not mind playing on-screen dad to actors like Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, to which he gladly said, "Yes!"
However, when the offer came knocking his door, the actor reportedly shot it down.
According to reports, director Rajkumar Hirani and writer Abhijat Joshi had allegedly approached Aamir to play the role of father, Sunil Dutt, in the upcoming biopic of Sanjay Dutt, which stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. Aamir reportedly turned the offer down as he thought the director was approaching him to play the role of Sanjay and said that he was not interested in "playing Dutt's father."
Veteran actor Paresh Rawal is now playing the role of Sunil Dutt in the biopic opposite Manisha Koirala, who will be seen playing Sanjay's mother Nargis. Sonam Kapoor and Anushka Sharma will also be seen in sporting roles in the film.
