Aamir Khan describes Lal Singh Chaddha, says ‘He’s a lovable, innocent Sikh guy’

Aamir Khan has said that he has no problems doing remakes, as even before Lal Singh Chaddha, he has done Ghajini and Dil Hai KI Maanta Nahi.

Be it time, preparation or efforts — trust Aamir Khan to put his heart and soul into the characters he portrays onscreen. At present, the actor is totally devoted to his next, Lal Singh Chaddha — an adaptation of Hollywood film Forrest Gump — and is making sure that from his character’s looks to shooting locations, he leaves no stone unturned to get them right. “I’ve been after this film for the last eight years, so I’m thrilled it’s finally happening,” the actor tells us, as we caught up with him for a sit-down chat during his recent visit to the Capital. Excerpts:

So, what brings you to Delhi?

We’re on an extensive recee for Lal Singh Chaddha… seeing locations in Delhi, Punjab, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Ladakh, Rajasthan and I’ll be travelling for two to three days in each city.

When the film was announced, the title received a mix response. Did that make you anxious?

That’s the character’s name. [Actor] Atul Kulkarni has done the adaptation and he has made him a Sardaar (sikh guy), that’s why I’m growing my beard. So far, I’m happy with the script; we start shooting on November 1. Hopefully we’d be able to execute it well.

Tom Hanks did the role when he was 30, whereas you’ve crossed the 50-mark. Do you find it a challenge?

Not really. [In Forrest Gump]… if you see the each running shot, it’s not more than 30 seconds. Woh cut karke sequence mein lagta hai ki woh char saal bhaga. So, that’s not a worry. The challenge is actually getting the ‘sur’ of the character right.

Do you think audience easily relate with such sensitive characters onscreen or is there always a risk?

I think so. This character is very lovable. He’s so innocent… he has got this different way of looking at things. He’s someone you immediately empathize with when you connect. Unless I perform it badly (laughs), then it’s a different game. As a written character, it’s such that you’d fall in love with him straightaway.

Amid the debate that Bollywood films lack originality and that’s why we see so many remakes or adaptations; do you feel any pressure?

I don’t have a problem in doing remakes. I believe that whenever a script excites me, I want to do it. I have done remakes in the past, too — It Happened One Night was remade into Dil Hai KI Maanta Nahi and Tamil film Ghajini was remade as Ghajini in Hindi. But, it’s not something I do very often. Most of my films are original scripts. As a creative person, I feel it gives you an opportunity to reinterpret the same material. It’s like doing Shakespeare — down the centuries, people have been doing his plays again and again.

Be it Ghajini or Dangal, you’ve set the bar high when it comes to getting the look right for a character. Do you want to take it easy now?

Each time you have to not just be the character but look like that, too. In this case, I feel Lal Singh is a character — bodily and physically speaking — I see him as a lean person throughout the film, who is not exceptionally muscular. That’s how I’m hoping to project it. And I’d be speaking Punjabi in the film that I’ve just started learning.

Guilty until proven innocent? Aamir Khan’s U-turn on #MeToo accused director sparks debate

‘Perhaps some people will be critical of my decision,’ the actor told one newspaper. ‘But I’ve to live with my own conscience.’

Soon after the MeToo movement hit India in October last year, actor Aamir Khan and filmmaker Kiran Rao issued a statement on Twitter distancing themselves from Mogul, the Gulshan Kumar biopic they were producing. Khan was supposed to act in the film, portraying the man who founded the T-Series music label before going on to produce films. Mogul was being directed by Subhash Kapoor.

In 2012, actress Geetika Tyagi had accused Kapoor of attempting to molest her. After the incident, Tyagi confronted Kapoor about the incident and recorded a video of that encounter. In 2014, Tyagi filed a case against him, which resulted in director being arrested. He was later released on bail.

In their statement last year, Khan and Rao said, “We are not an investigative agency, nor are we in any position to pass judgement on anyone – that is for the police and judiciary to do. So, without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film.”

However, in an interview to the Hindustan Times on Monday, Khan announced that he was back on board for Mogul. “I’m just doing what my heart says is right, and what my conscience tells me is right,” he said. “At that time I felt that was the right step to take, so I took that. Today, I feel differently. I’m going with my heart. Perhaps some people will be critical of my decision. But I’ve to live with my own conscience. So, I’ve done what my heart and conscience feels is right.”

In an interview with Mid-Day, Tyagi said that she had commended Rao and Khan last year because their gesture had encouraged more women to speak up about their own experiences of sexual harassment. She said she had not solicited their support. “Now that Subhash has been hired back, it’s not like someone [from their end] reached out to me,” she said. “It would have been a fair game had they considered both sides of the story.”

She added: “I have never said that Subhash shouldn’t get work. But after I complained, I did not get work for a long time. The industry is patriarchal. Only women face the repercussions of complaining against sexual harassment, whether in the workplace or otherwise. They are ostracised when they complain.”

Actress Tanushree Dutta, who had accused actor Nana Patekar of inappropriate behaviour last year, criticised Khan’s decision to work with Kapoor on Mogul.

“How come nobody in Bollywood has sleepless nights when a woman becomes a victim of abuse and is not able to work due to the trauma and ostracisation,” Dutta told Mid-Day. “If he has agreed to hire this guy, why not hire the woman who suffered the consequences of his actions? Why do only the creepy men of Bollywood get compassion?”

The incident has started a debate on social media about whether Khan should work with someone accused of sexual harassment.

Is Khan’s decision justified? After all, according to the law, Kapoor is innocent until proven otherwise. Is Khan being criticized unnecessarily? Or will Aamir Khan’s decision to work with Kapoor be a setback to the #MeToo movement in Bollywood?

‘Would’ve been fair if Aamir Khan considered both sides’: Subhash Kapoor’s #MeToo accuser on rehiring him for ‘Mogul’

Aamir Khan rehired Subhash Kapoor without even talking to his #MeToo accuser, or so she claims

Aamir Khan surprised one-and-all when he made a massive decision. The superstar is back on track with Gulshan Kumar biopic, titled Mogul. Not only has he backed the movie as a producer and is acting in it, but Aamir has also roped in #MeToo accused Subhash Kapoor as the director for the movie.

Knowing that he would be questioned for his decision, Aamir Khan gave a lengthy interview where he justified his action by stating that he felt guilty and had sleepless nights thinking a person was unemployed because of his big decision. Aamir also stated that in order to make a decision, he and his wife Kiran Rao met other females who worked with Kapoor.

Astonished by the U-Turn which Aamir took, the #MeToo accuser of Subhash Kapoor gave an interview to Mid-Day claiming this episode feels strange. She said, “I had commended Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan [last year] because it gave hope to more women to speak up about their own stories. But I had never asked for it from them.”

Tanushree Dutta reacts to Aamir Khan’s decision to join Mogul: ‘Compassion should be universal’

Tanushree Dutta has responded to Aamir Khan’s decision to rejoin Subash Kapoor’s Mogul. The film is being directed by Subhash Kapoor.

Actor Tanushree Dutta, who sparked the MeToo Movement of India last year, has reacted to actor Aamir Khan’s decision to work with director Subhash Kapoor. He was accused of sexual harassment by actor Geetika Tyagi five years ago, a case that picked up wind again last year with the movement.

Talking to Mid-day, Tanushree said, “How come nobody in Bollywood has sleepless nights when a woman becomes a victim of abuse and is not able to work due to the trauma and ostracisation… If he has agreed to hire this guy, why not hire the woman who suffered the consequences of his actions? Why do only the creepy men of Bollywood get compassion? Let the girls also see some of that saintly do-goodery.”

“Compassion should be universal. If it’s so selective as is being displayed by the Bollywood’s bigwigs, then it’s not compassion. It’s convenience and ignorance. Nobody bothered to ask me how I was doing when my livelihood was snatched away after the Horn Ok Pleassss harassment episode. No compassion for me, Aamir?” she added.

Aamir and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao had decided to quit Mogul last year on learning of the accusations against Subhash. He wrote a long post voicing his support towards the MeToo Movement and also talked about it at length on Karan Johar’s show Koffee With Karan. However, even then, he had mentioned how he was staying up at night thinking about whether he caused an innocent man to lose his job.

Aamir Khan’s shocking U-turn!

Aamir’s decision has now set the grapevine buzzing.

Aamir Khan, who likes to portray a holier-than-thou image, has justified his decision of working with #MeToo accused, Subhash Kapoor. In a recent interview to a publication, the actor revealed that he decided to be a part of this project as he was troubled that his action might have cost Kapoor his right to work! And that’s when he and wife Kiran Rao decided to interact with a handful of women who had worked with Kapoor in the past. He also wrote to IFTDA (Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association) informing them about his decision to return to the film.

Aamir’s decision has now set the grapevine buzzing. “Rumour is that Subhash Kapoor went to Aamir Khan and asked him to help out as he has not been able to move ahead with other projects because of Aamir’s withdrawal from the film. Taking cognizance of the fact that it was also affecting his family, Aamir decided to get back to the project and get him back on board as well,” says a source.

Another film industry veteran, however, feels that it could just be hogwash. “Aamir will release Lal Singh Chadha during next Christmas. How will he have the time to do that film if he has eyes already on the Mahabharata as well as on the Osho biopic? Subhash has a few projects ready, including a Mayawati biopic and is not finding a studio because of the Aamir issue. Now, with Aamir’s announcement, it will be easy for Subhash’s career to move ahead. By the time they reach the bridge to cross it, there could be yet another U-turn,” insists the veteran.

Aamir’s decision now is clearly a paradigm shift from the stance he had taken when stepping out of the project. Last year, the actor had sent out an official statement saying that he would not be working in this film. “At Aamir Khan Productions we have always had a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour of any kind… Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct,” Aamir had said.

Akshay Kumar hijacks Salman Khan’s Eid, Shah Rukh Khan’s Diwali, Aamir Khan’s Christmas in 2020 – here’s how

Akshay Kumar has about 4 movies coming out next year right from Sooryavanshi to Laxmmi Bomb to Bachchan Pandey to his recently announced film, Prithviraj.

Is 2020 going to be the year of Akshay Kumar? I mean, no seriously! This man is unstoppable and how! Although the superstar is known to have a reputation of releasing multiple movies in a year but little did anyone expect that he would book not one or two but all the celebrated festive holidays (Eid, Diwali, Christmas) next year with some of his biggest movies coming up right from Laxmmi Bomb to Bachchan Pandey to his recently announced period-drama, Prithviraj, the biopic on Prithviraj Chauhan.

While usually, it’s either Republic Day or Independence Day that gets associated with Akshay’s films just like how Eid is reserved for Salman Khan, Diwali for Shah Rukh Khan and Christmas by Aamir Khan, 2020 seems to be setting an all-new trend with Akshay taking over all the festivals, throughout the year…

Starting from Eid 2020, although initially Akshay’s Sooryavanshi, directed by Rohit Shetty, was going to hit the screens they preponed it to March 27, 2020 to make way for Salman Khan’s Inshallah with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. However, now with Inshallah getting shelved, AK didn’t think twice before booking Eid 2020 for his another film, Laxmmi Bomb – the official remake of Tamil film Kanchana. Salman is yet to make an announcement on which film would he be releasing on Eid in place of Inshallah but with AK calling dibs on Eid first, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Khiladi gets an upper hand.

Then comes the Diwali festive. Now except for last year wherein SRK’s Zero released during Christmas and Aamir’s Thugs Of Hindostan released during Diwali, Shah Rukh fans have usually got a Diwali treat from the star. While we agree SRK has suspciously refrained from announcing a film since almost a year now but even if he wants to come out with a release next year, Akshay has already booked Diwali 2020 for his first ever historical period-drama – Prithviraj. The actor just made an announcement on the occasion of his birthday today.

And finally Christmas 2020, which, despite being booked by Aamir Khan first, for his much ambitious project, Lal Singh Chadha, AK hasn’t spared it either. The actor will be seen releasing his massy entertainer, Bachchan Pandey during Christmas next year. More recently, when AK was quizzed about his box office clash with Aamir next year, he had said, “We have 52 Fridays in a year and even fewer holiday weekends. We make over 200 Hindi films a year while Hollywood releases 40 more and then there’s the South industry and other regional cinema. So, we should be happy if we have two big releases in a week. This year, on the Independence Day weekend we had three, till one bowed out.”
