Aamir Khan wanted to act in Laapataa Ladies

Earlier, in an interview with The Week, Kiran Rao revealed how Aamir was genuinely interested in playing Ravi Kishan's character Manohar, and the duo even engaged in extensive discussions regarding him playing the character.

According to Kiran, Aamir really loved the character and even went as far as conducting costume and makeup tests, showcasing his dedication to the role. She also acknowledged Aamir's commendable performance during the audition. But upon viewing Ravi's audition, she sensed a refreshing unpredictability, “a complete surprise,” in his portrayal, which she found intriguing. She expressed, "When Aamir is in a role, it sort of sets up expectations for this character." 

“I rejected Aamir Khan. I did actually in this case,” the filmmaker shared, while talking about choosing Ravi Kishan instead of Aamir to play the role.

Well, we can't wait to see the film which is hitting the big screens on March 1, 2024.
