Would Aamir and Shahrukh appear together ?

In what is probably the mother of all casting coups in Bollywood, SRK and Aamir might come together soon in a movie that has at its helm none other than Danny Boyle and Anurag Kashyap. 
News is that both the Khans have been approached by Anurag Kashyap to work in his next project, 'Bombay Velvet'. Anurag is known for being a director with very high artistic integrity, his recent claims to fame being 'Dev D' and 'Gulaal'. Danny Boyle of 'Slumdog Millionaire' fame is said to be producing this venture- now we know what those talks with Aamir Khan was all about!
SRK and Aamir, as all of us would know, have a long history of bitter face-offs and cold wars and grudging public acknowledgements of each other's star power. The media has thrived on the Khan wars, and if this casting miracle is true, we're waiting for the mayhem this will unleash on television, in print and online!
The two Khans have been vociferous about the causes they believe in and have come together in a display of solidarity during the recent spat between producers and multiplex owners. And they have kept us entertained all the time, whether on screen or off it.
If they are individually responsible for fireworks at the box office, imagine what their cinematic union can do to Bollywood. We're keeping our fingers crossed and are eagerly waiting for the official confirmation.
