When Saif Ali Khan Convinced Kareena Kapoor to Audition for Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha

Laal Singh Chaddha happens to be the first film for which Kareena Kapoor Khan ever auditioned and she did so only for her co-star Aamir Khan.

Having played an array of roles, from an escort to a feisty Punjabi girl and a fading Bollywood superstar, Kareena Kapoor Khan has an incredible ability to disappear into a character. She, however, landed all these remarkable roles without auditioning for them. Yes, you read that right!

Laal Singh Chaddha happens to be the first film for which Kareena ever auditioned and she did so only for her co-star Aamir Khan.

“In these 20 years, nobody has ever told me that you have to read these two scenes. But I think that even if it was for Hollywood, I would have not auditioned. I auditioned only because of Aamir. I know what his potential is, and I know his intent. He will create a world, and in that world, he wants to be 100 percent sure. I was reading the scene, and I knew that I had nailed it. When I was midway through the scene, Aamir told Advait (Chandan, director) that this is done, and that he can see my character in that,” Kareena said.

Reviving old tales

Aamir Khan opted out of Mr Mehta and Mrs Singh 15 years ago, and has registered the title again last week.

Around 15 years ago, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor were penciled in to star in a Vishal Bharadwaj directed film called Mr. Mehta and Mrs. Singh, which was to be bankrolled by UTV. Aamir later opted out of the project, after which it was shelved.  

But interestingly, the actor registered the exact same title under his production house, Aamir Khan Films LLP’s banner, last week. He has registered two titles with the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) — Mr Mehta and Mrs Singh as well as Mr Mehta Mrs Singh. “Aamir Khan has registered the titles of the film both in English as well as in Hindi,” informs our source.

While Bharadwaj’s original choice of heroine was Rani Mukerji, he later chose Kareena. “The film was billed to be a romantic comedy, very unlike the genre that Vishal had been trying to do. It was also a film where both Aamir and Kareena were shown ageing, like how they are doing so in Laal Singh Chaddha.
The film was to go on the floors in 2006 in Pondicherry, but things didn’t work out and the project was shelved then. Since Aamir has now registered the title, it does seem that he is keen to bring the film back to life. We wonder if it will have Vishal as a part of it, since it was his idea,” a film industry source muses.

Incidentally, there was another film that released in 2010 called Mr Singh Mrs Mehta with Prashant Narayanan and British actress Aruna Shields. The overtly bold film directed by Pravesh Bharadwaj got a lukewarm response at the box office.
