Aamir Khan, who has been on a self-imposed sabbatical from acting, is reportedly planning his comeback with the Ujjwal Nikam biopic. Khan is planning to co-produce the film with Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films and is in talks with Avinash Arun to direct the film. Arun is a cinematographer and director who made the National Award-winning Marathi film Killa (2014), co-directed the web series Paatal Lok (2020) and filmed and directed the Disney+Hotstar web series School of Lies

As per a report in Pinkvilla, a source close to the development said, “Avinash is working closely with Aamir and Dinesh Vijan to develop the screenplay of the Ujjwal Nikam Biopic. All the stakeholders are happy with the right energies associated with the project and are keen to take the film on floors next year.”

The source added, “It’s still not confirmed if Aamir will act in the film himself or if he will get another person on board. There are all sorts of conversations happening, and the team is also figuring out the permutation combinations with regard to the casting. He might just surprise everyone by acting in the film, or may just be associated as a producer.”

Nikam is an Indian special public prosecutor who has been a part of several high-profile cases such as the Gulshan Kumar murder case, the 1993 bombings, the Pramod Mahajan murder case, and the 2008 Mumbai attacks case. 

Khan’s last release was Laal Singh Chaddha (2022), which didn’t fare well at the box office.
