Aamir Khan: Aamir Khan wanted son Junaid to become ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’, know where the mess happened, why the matter was not made

Aamir Khan’s film ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is going to release on August 11. It is a remake of Tom Hanks’ Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’. The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan along with Aamir Khan. ‘Secret Superstar’ fame Advait Chandan is directing this film. While there is a demand to boycott the film even before its release, Aamir Khan has revealed that he wanted to see his son Junaid Khan as ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. Yes, the superstar informed during a conversation with reporters that he wanted to see his son Junaid playing the lead role in ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ in his place, but then things did not work out.

Aamir Khan was talking to some journalists before the release of the film, during which he was asked if he had seen Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump? In response, Aamir Khan said, ‘I saw Forrest Gump long ago. But when this project came to me, I never saw that film after that. Aamir said that he and his team did watch some Forrest Gump scenes to get some references, but have never sat down and watched the entire film together.

The test scenes of ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ were shot with Junaid
During this conversation, Aamir Khan praised the film’s director Advait Chandan and said, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha is a difficult film. He was initially reluctant to do the film himself. Later he prepared his own crew and shot some selected scenes. During this time Junaid also returned from Los Angeles after taking training. In such a situation, I suggested to Advait that he should shoot those scenes with Junaid Khan. It was like a test for both of them.

Aamir Khan further says, ‘When I saw test videos with Kiran Rao, my senses were blown away. Seeing Junaid’s performance, I felt that I had lost my chance. He had the innocence that Lal Singh Chaddha’s character needed. Whereas I had to bring it because of acting. I showed those videos to about 100 people, including my family, friends, some people working together, Raju Hirani, Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra. Out of these 98 people agreed that I should include Junaid in the film.
