Did you know Aamir Khan’s son Junaid Khan had auditioned for his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha? The Bollywood actor revealed that he was blown away by his son’s performance and even took inspiration from him while playing the character in Advait Chandan’s film. Aamir also shared why Junaid didn’t bag the part.
Aamir Khan-starrer Laal Singh Chaddha has been making waves ever since the trailer was released. After getting delayed multiple times, the much-awaited flick will finally hit the silver screens on August 11, 2022. Movie buffs have been eagerly waiting for the film as Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist will be seen in a different avatar.
Aamir Khan, who is on a promotion spree these days, revealed that his son Junaid Khan had auditioned for Laal Singh Chaddha’s role. He stated that he was ‘blown away’ after watching Junaid’s audition tape.
The Thugs Of Hindostan actor, while interacting with the media at a press conference, shared his first thoughts after he saw Junaid’s act. He said that his son had the innocence that they looked for someone, who was supposed to play Laal’s part.
“As soon as I saw the test video, I was blown away. I knew mera chance gaya (I thought my chance has gone). That innocence of Laal that we were planning to get was out there while I would have to act it out. The innocence on his face was Laal Singh and I would have had to work incredibly hard to get there. I don’t have that innocence anymore and he did that naturally,” Aamir said while speaking to the journalists.
The 3 Idiots star said that Junaid was ‘simply outstanding’ and he felt his son was the ‘right guy’ to play the part. Although he liked Junaid’s performance, the Dhoom 3 actor couldn’t take his son in Laal Singh Chaddha.
Sharing the reason behind the same, Aamir revealed that Atul Kulkarni and Aditya Chopra wanted him to play the titular role instead of Junaid. “They wanted me to play the role. According to them, the story of Forrest Gump isn’t that solid. It’s an episodic movie which required a star. A new actor couldn’t pull this off. So when the discussions came back around, I started to grow my beard again,” he stated.
