    Shah Rukh Khan to launch son Aryan in Bollywood remake of 'Boyhood'

    Mumbai:
    Richard Linklater's Oscar winning film 'Boyhood' which had the entire western world going gaga, may just be remade in Bollywood. News has it that Shah Rukh Khan is in talks with the makers to acquire rights of the film's remake in India which will serve as the launch pad for his elder son Aryan Khan.

    In fact, Aryan was the one who recommended the film to his superstar father. "Aryan watched it and was so impressed that he called up SRK from London and asked him to watch the film. The father-son duo often recommends good books and films to each other," said a source close to the family.

    SRK was so moved by the film that he decided to produce it and asked his son whether he would be keen to play the role that has been played by actor Ellar Coltrane in the original. While 'Boyhood' was shot over 12 years- Khan is reportedly keen on filming the teenage part of the boy's life. There will be some shots of his childhood, for which Khan is keen on having youngest son AbRam playing the junior version of his elder brother.
    The film's director will be decided soon after the makers of 'Boyhood' give the final nod but Khan is in talks with Manish Sharma, his director of 'Fan' and Rahul Dholakia who he will work with in 'Raees' next. Director Linklater has already made a very hush-hush trip to Mumbai to speak to Khan. "SRK wants Linklater's inputs in the film and will work in close association with him," added the source. "In all probability Khan will play Ethan Hawke's character in the film." When we asked which actress is in the running for Patricia Arquette's role, the source said, "it has not been decided yet."

    Incidentally, Linklater on his Facebook page had posted about how he loved watching 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and praised the 'incredible talent in Bollywood'. His entire post can be seen here.

    I'm sorry. I saw it on two more or less reputable sources and thought it was for real. So much for two sources....I'm going to hide for the rest of the day.

    Thanks. It's almost midnight here, so I guess it's safe to come out again. I guess I really wanted it to be true. Wouldn't it be wonderful seeing SRK and all three kids in a movie together? Guess it won't happen in my lifetime. Sigh!
