Is Mansoor Khan planning comeback to direction?

Spotted having a great time at Imran Khan‘s wedding this week was his reclusive uncle Mansoor Khan who had flown in especially from Coonoor to be present at the happy occasion. Is the reclusive, Mansoor Khan finally ready to relinquish his hermetic life in Coonoor in Tamil Nadu and return to Mumbai to direct a film?

Mansoor, who voluntarily withdrew from the rat race after directing Josh 11 years ago, made a rare appearance in the glitz-midst on Sunday evening when he showed up for the sangeet and wedding of his nephew Imran Khan. Those present at the vibrant venue say Mansoor was locked in earnest discussion with Aamir.

And now the buzz is, Mansoor is being persuaded to give film direction another try.

Abbas Tyrewala who was present at the sangeet ceremony and the party that followed on Sunday evening confirms Mansoor’s presence at the Sangeet.

“But I don’t know if Mansoor is ready to direct another film. I don’t think he’s against filmmaking. He just couldn’t take the Mumbai bustle. He did come back to help me and Aamir with Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na. Since then Aamir has been urging Mansoor to direct another film. He has even put me on to the job of persuading Mansoor. Let’s see.”

Abbas doesn’t rule out Mansoor’s return. “He seemed to be very much at home enjoying himself at Imran’s sangeet. When he left Mumbai and settled in Coonoor, his biggest concern was how to keep elephants out of his farmland. Who wouldn’t want a life like that? I don’t rule out the possibility of my moving out of Mumbai after directing a few more films. Maybe Mansoor and I will swap places.”
