Salman, Shah Rukh, and Aamir Khan reunite on stage, dazzling guests with their dance moves at the Ambani pre-wedding festivities in Jamnagar.
Aamir Khan, renowned for his discerning eye for scripts, has once again proven his knack for spotting potential in upcoming projects. The eagerly awaited Bollywood film, “Laapataa Ladies,” slated for release on March 1, 2024, owes its inception of script to none other than Khan himself. Contrary to popular belief, it was Aamir Khan who stumbled upon the script, not his spouse, Kiran Rao, who is directing the film.
The genesis of “Laapataa Ladies” traces back to the Cinestan Script Writing Competition, where Biplab Goswami penned the captivating storyline. Khan, impressed by Goswami’s narrative prowess, wasted no time in championing the script’s cause. Recognizing its potential, he eagerly proposed it to Kiran Rao, urging her to helm the project. Rao, acknowledging Khan’s keen eye and unwavering support, embraced the opportunity to bring the story to life on the silver screen.
In a recent interview, Rao shed light on Khan’s enthusiastic involvement in the project, particularly his affinity for the character portrayed by Ravi Kishan, Manohar. The duo engaged in extensive discussions, with Khan exhibiting genuine interest in the character’s nuances. Khan’s commitment transcended mere words, as he immersed himself in costume and makeup tests, showcasing his dedication to bringing Manohar to life.
However, despite Khan’s initial inclination towards the role, Rao experienced a delightful twist during Kishan’s audition. She was captivated by the actor’s portrayal, which exuded an unexpected depth and spontaneity, prompting her to reconsider her casting decision. Rao emphasized the invaluable contribution of Kishan’s portrayal, which injected a newfound unpredictability into the character, enriching the film’s narrative tapestry.
As the release date of “Laapataa Ladies” draws near, anticipation continues to mount, fueled by Aamir Khan’s discerning choice and Kiran Rao’s directorial finesse. The film stands as a testament to Khan’s unwavering support for promising talent and his commitment to fostering innovation within the industry. With a stellar cast and a compelling storyline, “Laapataa Ladies” promises to captivate audiences and carve its niche in the annals of Bollywood cinema.
