In an effort to rationalize the debate, Aamir Khan recently stated that Mona Singh has done a fantastic job of portraying Laal’s mother, not Aamir Khan. In a recent interaction, Aamir spoke about the age conflict, saying: “I want to ask you a question that as an actor, as a creative person, if I look 103, what should I do, why my age is inappropriate 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 bhi age ka ho aur kuch bhi age low .(It is the beauty of the actor to put any age on it screen despite their real age being different.) Yeh toh Mona Singh ka kamaal hai Jab aap dekhoge toh aapko Lagega ke badi jong lag rahi hai, phir aapko Lagega ke yeh toh badi oud bhi dikh rahi hai.(If you When you see Mona Singh in the film, you will realize her brilliance. At some point you will feel that she looks very young, while at other times she also looks old).”
Aamir went on to state that if he had been in Mona Singh’s place, he would have felt disturbed by this age debate surrounding the film. Directed by Advait Chandan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is an adaptation of the Hollywood hit ‘Forrest Gump’ and is set for release on August 11.
