The Khans, except Salman, have kept a low profile in 2019 but are expected to make heads turn with their films in 2020. This year, Aamir Khan will be coming to the theatres with Laal Singh Chaddha.
The new year has started and so has our excitement for the next set of releases scheduled for this year. While we are well aware of some of the films that we can expect like Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak or Kangana Ranaut’s Panga, when it comes to the Khans of the industry, we wonder what are they up to? While Shah Rukh Khan is currently on a break, actor Salman Khan has recently impressed us with his character Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg 3. So without wasting much time, we have listed out where you can spot your favourite Khans this year. Check out the exciting list here:
Perfectionist actor Aamir Khan had maintained a distance from the 70mm in 2019. His last release Thugs of Hindostan failed miserably at the box-office. Produced by Aditya Chopra under the Yash Raj films banner, the movie also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in lead roles.
But, fret not Aamir fans! For we have a treat for you all. The star will return to the big screens with Laal Singh Chaddha opposite Kareena Kapoor. The film has been produced by Kiran Rao and Aamir under Aamir Khan productions. The movie was officially announced on March 14, 2019 by Aamir on the occasion of his birthday and it went on floors in October last year.
अभिनेता आमिर खान में बड़े स्टार होने का अहंकार नजर नहीं आता। वह अपने करियर की सफलताओं और असफलताओं, दोनों को बेहद विनम्रता के साथ स्वीकार करते हैं। पिछले साल उनकी फिल्म ‘ठग्स ऑफ हिन्दोस्तान’ बॉक्स ऑफिस पर कुछ खास कमाल नहीं दिखा पाई थी। वह दर्शकों से उनकी उम्मीदों पर खरा न उतर पाने के लिए माफी मांगना चाहते हैं। एक रोचक बातचीत में आमिर ने अपनी फिल्मों, सफलता और साल में एक से ज्यादा फिल्मों में काम न करने जैसे मुद्दों पर बात की। वह कहते हैं, ‘मेरी काम करने की गति काफी कम हो चुकी है। अब मैं औसतन दो साल में एक फिल्म कर रहा हूं। ‘ठग्स ऑफ हिन्दोस्तान’ पिछले साल दिवाली पर रिलीज हुई थी। ‘लाल सिंह चड्ढा’ अगले साल क्रिसमस पर रिलीज होगी। यानी दो साल से कुछ समय ज्यादा।’
जब आप दूसरे अभिनेताओं को साल में कई सारी फिल्मों में काम करते देखते हैं तो क्या आपके मन में कोई असुरक्षा की भावना आती है? कभी नहीं। जब मैं अपने सह-कलाकारों को शानदार फिल्मों में काम करते देखता हूं तो मुझे बहुत खुशी होती है। आयुष्मान खुराना इतना शानदार काम कर रहा है कि मैं बतौर दर्शक उसकी फिल्में देखना चाहता हूं। फिल्म इंडस्ट्री के सभी कलाकारों की अपनी-अपनी खासियत है। कोई भी किसी दूसरे की वजह से असुरक्षित महसूस नहीं करता।
Aamir Khan is ‘very sorry, hurt and upset’ for not living up to expectations in Thugs of Hindostan.
Actor Aamir Khan doesn’t come with the ego that comes with being one of the biggest names in showbiz. He humbly accepts success, and candidly takes credit for his films’ failures, too. Last year, Thugs of Hindostan (TOH) tanked at the box office, and he feels like apologising to viewers “for not living up to the expectations”.
In a chat, he discusses success, films and if he wants to do more than one film a year. Well, for the last question, he says, “The pace has reduced considerably. It’s more like one [film] in two years. TOH was on last Diwali, and Laal Singh Chaddha will be out on Christmas next year, so, it’ll be a little over two years.” Excerpts:
Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor look really good onscreen despite the obvious height difference. The duo was first paired by Rajkumar Hirani for “Three Idiots” and the pair was quite a big hit. After that, Aamir roped the gorgeous actress for his home production “Talaash” in which the mother-of-one portrayed the role of a ghost. After a long time, the two will now be seen together in “Lal Singh Chaddha” that will be directed by Advait.
The “Lagaan” actor is known for donning a new look for his every movie. From “Rang De Basanti” to his latest super flop “Thugs of Hindustan” Aamir Khan is known as a perfectionist and has tried novel looks for his every role. His character in “Ghajini” became famous for the special haircut that he had in the movie. So, when recently the actor was spotted along with his “Laal Singh Chaddha” actor Kareena Kapoor Khan and director Advait in totally different ‘avatar’ many speculated that it can be his look in the upcoming movie.
Although the star cast for the movie is almost final, it is still to go on floors. The recent citing of a lead couple of the movie and the director together also triggered off rumors that now the flick will go on the floors very soon. Aamir Khan was accompanied by his wife Kiran Rao who was busy chatting with Kareena.
Aamir Khan looked quite dashing in his thick beard and lean look. According to reports, both Kareena and Aamir will have different looks for “Laal Singh Chaddha” each dedicated to different eras as the flick will trace the journey from Kargil to Pulwama attack. The story will also give emphasis to various changes the country went during these times including change in the government and more. In nutshell, “Laal Singh Chaddha” will depict the socio-political history of India of the past 5 decades.
Aamir Khan: Will he be the last Khan standing? Far from being a serious contender for the numero uno spot over Shah Rukh or Salman, Aamir Khan has actually been the most consistent in starring in Bollywood’s biggest blockbuster of all time over the past decade. First, it was 3 Idiots (in 2009, which scaled that high. The record of 3 Idiots was broken by his own PK (Rs 339.5 crore) in 2014. Two years later, Dangal busted the record PK. Dangal (Rs 387.39 crore) continues to be Bollywood’s biggest hit as of date. Interestingly, all of Aamir’s biggest hits – also includes Dhoom 3 was released in Christmas. The actor’s success mantra is what has probably laid down the formula for modern-day Bollywood’s slant at content-driven entertainers. Among the Khans and also including most superstars before their era, Aamir was the one superstar who understood the importance of amalgamating solid script with commercial entertainment value. For this, he needed to avoid falling into an image trap – which let him play an oversized wrestler in Dangal with as much ease as he essayed a misfit alien in PK. Aamir’s problem now probably is that younger actors as Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao have picked up the trick. Although they are far from guaranteeing the sort of returns an Aamir Khan film normally gives, Aamir knows the film industry can be a fickle place, and fans can be unpredictable. The failure of his absolutely disappointing Thugs Of Hindostan last Diwali underlines the fact. The disaster that Thugs Of Hindostan was probably shouldn’t be held against Aamir alone. The film was a bad product, it would have crashed anyway. The actor’s detractors, however, have been quick to point out his 2013 release, Dhoom 3, would fall in the same category of brainlessness, and yet went onto becoming a superhit. If Dhoom 3 worked then, and Thugs Of Hindostan failed last year, his detractors hold it as a sign that Aamir Khan is slowing down. Aamir, it would seem, is best suited to survive age – not just for creative instincts, but for his commercial sense. He has selected the right script to return over two years after Thugs Of Hindostan, when his next release, Lal Singh Chadha opens on Christmas 2020. The film is a Bollywood remake of Forrest Gump and directed by Advait Chauhan, who directed Aamir’s superhit production Secret Superstar earlier. As a product in the making, Lal Singh Chadha seems like just the right one fans of mild, middle-of-the-road entertainers as 3 Idiots, PK and Dangal are awaiting after all this time. Aamir’s challenge right now is to live up to his image as an actor who ensures quality Bollywood fare every time without losing out on commercial value. With every film, living up to that challenge could obviously get tougher. But while Salman and Shah Rukh look increasingly headed towards a zone of unpredictability as younger actors close in, Aamir is most likely to adapt and survive. He is a bit like Amitabh Bachchan that way.
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan who was last seen in the movie Thugs of Hindostan, is next acting in the movie Lal Singh Chaddha, which is directed by Advait Chandan, who had previously directed the superhit movie Secret Superstar that had Aamir Khan in a cameo.
Lal Singh Chaddha is the official Hindi remake of the Hollywood classic movie Forrest Gump released in 1994. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the movie starred Tom Hanks, Sally Field and was an acclaimed movie that won Tom Hanks the Best actor Oscar award.
Recently it was revealed that Vijay Sethupathi will play a role in Lal Singh Chaddha, and the latest update is that he might be playing Aamir Khan’s friend, reprising the role Bubba played by Mykelti Williamson in the original. Reportedly the team has modified the screenplay to have Bubba’s character as a Tamil person, and that Makkal Selvan will play the role.
Perfectionist Khan is all set to do a ‘Tom Hanks’ in his next ‘Lal Singh Chadha’, but is in the mood for a bit of ‘Dhoom Macha Le’.
His last Thugs of Hindostan may have sank without a trace at the box office back home, but the film along with his last Dhoom 3 will be screened at the Jackie Chan International Festival in China this weekend.
Actor-producer Aamir Khan, whose films are making a killing at the box-office in China, modestly claims that though he has been bestowed with the tag of ‘Worlds Biggest Superstar’, his popularity in the country is accidental.
Speaking about the tremendous love he garnered from the adjacent nation, Aamir Khan said, “My popularity in China happened by accident. Not many people know that it all started with 3 Idiots (2009), which reached Chinese homes through piracy. I guess they really related with the subject of the education system. Then they followed my work, including PK, and even the TV show Satyamev Jayate. When Dangal released in China, they already knew me and my work. Also, the reason why the films did such business in China is the sheer number of screens. In India, we have around 5,000 theatres, while in China there are 45,000. Even though there isn’t as much difference in the population of the two countries (approx. 1.35 billion in India and 1.4 billion in China). I play a cameo in Secret Superstar; even then the film was released by the exhibitors in 11,000 theatres in China. Just imagine the scale!”
