One of the most renowned singers of Punjabi Actor Gippy Grewal has recently spoken about an incident in which the team of Laal Singh Chaddha wanted his son Gurfateh to essay the role of young Aamir Khan. He also said that they also want to cut his hair for the role.
Speaking about the incident Gippy Grewal said, “Shinda played a small part in one of my films Ardaas (2016). The makers of Laal Singh Chaddha saw that and they approached me as they wanted him to play the young version of Aamir Khan in the film. Mukesh (Chhabra, casting director) also got in touch with me and told me to send across a few reference videos of Shinda saying ‘hello’ in Punjabi, which would also be a look test for him. I wasn’t even aware of the story of the film at that point in time.”
The actor also revealed why his son was not able to do the role. He further added, “There was an angle in the film where he had to get his hair cut. But we weren’t okay with it. In fact, it was not possible for us. That’s why he couldn’t do the film.”
Laal Singh Chaddha is directed by Advait Chandan. Produced under the banners of Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios, and Paramount Pictures, the film is an official Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks-starrer Forrest Gump. Mona Singh plays Aamir Khan's mother in the film. Before the release of the movie Boycott, Laal Singh Chaddha is trending because of Aamir‘s old controversial statement on India.
