Khan: 'I'm taking another year off'

Aamir Khan has revealed that he will be taking a break from acting.

The actor decided to take a year away from the screen because of the physical and emotional toll Ghajini had on him, but he has now claimed that he will be taking another year off to concentrate on producing movies.

"Aamir had earlier decided to take one year off. But now he has decided to extend his sabbatical by one more year," a source revealed to Real Bollywood.

"Filmmakers who have approached him with projects have been told that Aamir intends to take approximately one more year to supervise the post-production and final look of the three films that he has produced in 2009, namely Abhinay Deo's Delhi Belly, Anushka Rizvi's The Falling and Aamir's wife Kiran Rao's Dhobi Ghat.

"The only way Aamir feels his three productions can be completed and released in 2010 is if he sets aside all his own acting assignments to look into them. So he isn't signing any films in 2010 either.

"It requires guts to say no to the best roles going in Bollywood and to a reported fee of approximately Rs. 30 crores per film. But Aamir suffers no security pangs about not signing films. He told a friend he would work at his own pace, no matter what the temptation or provocation to take on extra work."
