Sukhvinder Singh is a singer par excellence and his body of work is proof of that. His singing prowess and booming voice still echo in the minds of his fans. Sukhvinder has given us many unforgettable songs through the 90s and 2000s and has always been a go-to artist for Shah Rukh Khan.
But did you know that Sukhvinder was challenged by Aamir Khan once and the prize was to record for the Dangal actor. Unfortunately, Sukhvinder lost out on Aamir and blew the chance of working with him. According to the singing superstar, Aamir got to know about his quirk of singing in the dark.
So, he asked Sukhvinder to sing in dim lights in front of him and offered a film if he succeeds in the task. Unfortunately, luck was not on Singh’s side that day and he made a mistake, thus losing out on a film with the Lal Singh Chadha star.

Just hours after the two posted videos of them asking people to conserve water, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised them for their efforts in creating awareness.
“Extremely valid points by @aamir_khan on the need to conserve water and create awareness at the grassroots level,” said PM Modi, re-tweeting Aamir Khan’s video.
The Prime Minister’s reply did not go unnoticed by Aamir Khan, who then extended his support to the new government initiative.
“.@narendramodi Sir, the initiative taken up by you of making water the fundamental and primary issue for all of us is an extremely important step. Our wholehearted support is with you,” he replied.
In a second tweet, PM Modi also responded to Amitabh Bachchah or Big B calling his wise words inspiring.
“Wise words from @SrBachchan, which will surely inspire you towards conserving water and urging others to do so as well! #JanShakti4JalShakti,” PM Modi said.
The videos, over a minute long, by both Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were shared on the Jal Shakti Abhiyan Twitter account before PM Modi shared them on his official Twitter account that has 48.3 Million followers.
The time-bound conservation mission will focus on 1592 stressed blocks in 256 districts and will be centered on five aspects – water conservation and rainwater harvesting, renovation of traditional and other water bodies, reuse of water and recharging of structures, watershed development, and intensive afforestation.
The campaign will run through citizen participation during monsoon (July 1-September 15). An additional phase will run from October 1 to November 30 for states receiving northeast retreating monsoons.
On Sunday, during his monthly radio address “Mann Ki Baat“, PM Modi requested citizens to help conserve water.

Completing a decade this year, 3 Idiots is touted as an all-time blockbuster and has secured its place in the top highest grossers of India.
Ladakh which was one of the untouched destinations by major tourists got explored in Aamir’s film, making it a must visit place later.
To take care of this the Government is taking proper measures, Rigzen Samphel, Secretary of Tourism Department from Jammu & Kashmir said, “Every year we are getting a lot of applications for new hotels as tourism becomes a lucrative business in Ladakh. We have increased the number of approvals for hotels. In the last six months, we have also developed new guidelines to ensure that hotels follow the best eco-friendly practices and do not hamper the environment”.

Not just 3 Idiots, Aamir Khan is known to start trends with his other cult films like Dil Chahta Hai, Rang De Basanti, amongst others.
On the work front, Aamir Khan will start prepping for his next film ‘Lal Singh Chadha’ which was announced on his birthday.
Aamir Khan is gearing up to begin work on his next film – Lal Singh Chaddha which is an official Hindi adaptation of the hit Hollywood film Forrest Gump. The English film traces the journey of this dimwitted man as he witnesses some of the most iconic episodes in US history. Similarly, Aamir’s character will also be present during some of the most crucial moments in the history of the nation.
Our source tells us, “Aamir is known to delve deep into his character. He had been wanting to make Forrest Gump for quite a few years but getting the rights took some time. But now, he’s completely devoted himself to the project. He is currently getting into the proper shape to play the younger Lal Singh Chaddha. He will lose at least 12-14 kilos now because he needs to look leaner than what he did in Thugs Of Hindostan.”
On one hand, there’s Salman Khan’s Bharat which began with the India-Pakistan Partition and ended in 2010. But Lal Singh Chaddha will showcase other momentous events instead. The informer reveals, “The movie opens in the ’70s with the India-Pakistan War of 1971. Advait Chandan, the director, along with Aamir, is sitting and researching material from the time zone. They are planning it on the lines of a socio-political drama. Along with that, they will also capture the whole period when Emergency was declared in India. They also plan to show the assassination of Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi among other events. Aamir’s character will age through the years and will travel to present times. Apart from the 1971 War, a brief part of the film’s second half will be about the Kargil War.”
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is shattering box office records left, right and center. But can he transform his place in the hearts of everyday Chinese into a bridge between nations?
He is the movie star with many names. “India’s conscience” to Chinese media; “Guaranteed Sales” to film distributors, and nothing less than Nan Shen (Male God) to Mandarin-speaking silver screen lovers. Yet those most familiar with the man shattering record books for Bollywood films in China refer simply – and fondly – to “Uncle Aamir”.
Step forward Aamir Khan, an actor described by some as India’s greatest cultural export to China since Rabindranath Tagore, the Nobel laureate whose stories held the Middle Kingdom so spellbound in the early 20th century that he was credited with ushering in a new “Tagorean” phase of Sino-Indian relations.
The current excitement surrounds Khan’s latest movie, Secret Superstar, a 150-minute film that has become one of the most profitable films ever (it cost only US$2.4 million to produce but is expected to gross more than US$98 million in China alone). Indeed, the more than US$46 million it took in the first seven days since its China release last Friday was a record for an Indian movie in China, eclipsing even Hollywood hits such as James Cameron’s 2010 mega-hit Avatar.
The movie, a coming-of-age story about a Muslim teenage girl who dreams of fame as a singer and finds it after uploading a YouTube video, has struck a chord with Chinese audiences who see many of India’s social issues – the film tackles gender inequality and domestic violence, among others – reflected in their own experiences. The film – rated eight out of 10 on Douban, a viewer-led movie-ranking website similar to IMDb – has dominated discussions on Sina Weibo, China’s answer to Facebook, for days. Even Chinese state-run media has weighed in, with the online version of People’s Daily praising it for “touching the soul”.
Viacom18 Studios in association with Aamir Khan Productions has announced their upcoming Indian film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, inspired by Paramount Pictures’ Oscar-winning movie ‘Forrest Gump’. While Aamir Khan essays the titular role in the film, Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen paired opposite him for the third time.
Laal Singh Chaddha will be directed by Advait Chandan of ‘Secret Superstar’ fame and is being written by Atul Kulkarni. The film will release in Christmas 2020.
Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios said, “It gives me immense pleasure to announce our upcoming venture with Aamir Khan titled ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. For every cinephile out there, the must-watch list of films would be incomplete without the mention of ‘Forrest Gump’. To be able to adapt the classic for Indian audiences is a long-cherished dream for many of us. Knowing Aamir’s burning passion for this subject for many years, he is the perfect partner to bring to life this dream. I also want to thank Jim, Andrew and the wonderful team at Paramount Pictures for believing in our vision and continuously supporting all endeavors to bring some of their best content to the Indian markets.”
“We’re thrilled to be in business with Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios, and to see them bringing this timeless story to a whole new generation of audiences,” said Andrew Gumpert, Chief Operating Officer of Paramount Pictures.
