Would love to do a film based on chess: Aamir Khan


Aamir Khan

Mumbai: Actor Aamir Khan, who has done a film around cricket and is now working on a movie on wrestling, hopes to feature in a project on chess, a game which he enjoys playing.  The 50-year-old was present at the inauguration of the third edition of the Maharashtra Chess League here on Friday.  On being asked if he’d like to do a film around chess, he said: “I would love to do a film on the game of chess if a script comes to me. But I don’t work towards scripts. I like the scripts to come to me organically. Let’s see if something comes up.”  Aamir added: “I love playing chess and play it whenever I gets the time. I play on a very amateur level but I love this game a lot.”  He finds his “Dhoom: 3″ co-star Katrina Kaif to be a good competitor in chess.  She is a good chess player. I almost lost when I played with her,” he said.
