Aamir Khan, who is now promoting his film Laal Singh Chaddha, was recently seen interacting with media reporters. As reported by Pinkvilla, the superstar reacted to the criticism, “I want to ask you a question that as an actor, as a creative person, if I’m looking 103, which I’m supposed to, why is my age inappropriate to play the role? Just because I am 57. What is the logic? Age specific kya hota hai actor ke liye? Actor ka toh yeh kamaal hota hai ke woh kuch bi age ka ho aur kuch bi age lage.”
“Kya baat kar rahe ho aap log? Yeh toh Mona Singh ka kamaal hai. Jab aap dekhoge toh aapko lagega ke badi young lag rahi hai. Phir aapko lagega ke yeh toh badi old bhi dikh rahi hai. Yeh toh uska kamaal hai. Aap uska kamaal cheen rahe hain usse. Bohot wrong kar rahe ho. Agar main Mona hota toh main bohut disturb ho jata,” Aamir added.
Helmed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is the official remake of the Academy Award-winning 1994 film Forrest Gump in which Tom Hanks played the lead role. The film is releasing on August 11 in theatres.
