Aamir Khan says his meeting with Shah Rukh Khan was "casual" and the duo did not discuss any projects.
Recently, Shah Rukh tweeted a picture along with Aamir and the team of Netflix, which started speculation that both of them might be coming on board for a project.

"No, I met him (Shah Rukh) twice in the last few months.
Once at Ajay Bijli's party, where we met after a long time. It felt wonderful spending time with him.
"Recently there was a get together at his place. We are meeting casually, just as friends. We haven't discussed work," Aamir said at a special press conference on his birthday.
The actor, who turned 52 on Tuesday, is currently gearing up for his forthcoming "Thugs of Hindostan".
There were reports that the actor has been approached for a biopic on Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to fly into space.
The film is reportedly titled be "Saare Jahan Se Achcha", as a tribute to Sharma's description of India from the space.
But Aamir says he is only working on 'Thugs' now and hasn't signed anything else. The actor, however, is excited to work with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in "Thugs..."
"This year I am very excited for one thing. I am a fan of Amitji and this is my first chance of working with him. I am so excited... The kind of actor that he is, the level that he has... I am sure I will learn a lot from him and it will be a very memorable experience for me," Aamir says.
The actor denied that the heavy moustache that he is sporting these days is the final look for the movie.
"We are still experimenting with different looks. This is one among them. But this is not the final look.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.
Prospects for Nepali talents in the Diaspora
When Indu, a Nepali American teen studying in Virginia, asked Panta whether she could inspire Nepali youngsters into music industry and convince their parents to consider Nepali music as a path to professionalism, the female heartthrob of Nepali music could not fully convince her.
Traffic Police in Kathmandu
As busy and hassling as the traffic system in Kathmandu is, the Traffic Police here have to handle an equally strenuous job. Over 1,400 traffic officers in and around the Kathmandu Valley battle against the pestering traffic and air pollution each day.
Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
