According to a Bollywood Hungama report, Aamir Khan will be stepping back from doing the official adaptation of Campeones as an actor and wants Salman Khan to take up the role.
A source close to the portal revealed, "Aamir wants Salman to do Campeones, we also hear, Salman is very much interested in the film, but is still considering other offers. "Salman has liked the script and wants to play the role of a coach for the first time in his career. He is expected to sign on the dotted line in the next 15 days and start shooting for this Aamir Khan film from summer this year."
The Campeones adaptation in Hindi is tentatively titled Champions and will see Salman coach a team of disabled. While Khan was supposed to do the film before, he now feels that the role and story is more apt for Salman.
Khan and Salman have acted together in 1994 comedy film, Andaz Apna Apna and if the collaboration is successful this will be their first project since Andaz Apna Apna but in the capacity of actor and producer. Champions will be directed by RS Prasanna with Aamir Khan Productions and Salman Khan Films as producers.
