Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be reuniting on-screen after eight years for the Hindi remake of the 1994 Hollywood hit ‘Forrest Gump’, in a film called ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. The film is set to go on the floors on 31st October 2019, ahead of a release in December 2020.
In an interaction with Rajeev Masand, Khan opened up about auditioning for the first time in her career for ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. She said, “Knowing the way Aamir is, I think he wanted to be like 100 per cent sure. So very randomly, out of the blue, I got a call from Aamir. ‘I want you to hear this film, this and that and I am very excited about it.’ So, it just happened very organically. I heard the script like just then the minute he called me and he was just like let’s read some scenes. I want you to read some scenes. So, I was like yeah, I have never done anything like this. I thought like what the hell. I want to see myself if I want to do this or not and you know there is nothing wrong in that.”
She added, “I think the times are changing and if I don’t evolve and I behave like I am some diva or this is beyond me… And Saif (her actor husband Saif Ali Khan) was the one who told me, ‘What’s wrong with you? Even an Al Pacino would test for the part. There is nothing wrong, we all have to be sure as actors and artists.'”
