Laal Singh Chadda is currently in the spotlight as the film’s release is just around the corner. The film, which has been in development for a long time, is very close to the heart of main star Aamir Khan. Meanwhile, the actor stunned everyone with his appearance in Coffee with Karan with LSC co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan. However, the actor on the show said that Bebo was not actually the first choice and he went to talk about bringing in a new actress who starred with Kareena in the commercial, and netizens believe that the newcomer is none other than Manushi Chillar.
Directed by Advait Chandan, the film is an official remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump, itself based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name. In addition to Kareena and Aamir, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya will also play important roles in the film.
The last episode of the 7th season ‘Coffee with Karan’ was released earlier than usual and on the show Aamir Khan talked about how Kareena Kapoor Khan was not the first choice for the role of Rupa in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. He mentioned a Bebo advertisement that featured another actress who he did not name; however, Karan Johar knew who he was talking about. Now a Reddit user believes it was Manushi Chillar and the ad Khan was referring to is for Malabar Gold.
Check out the Malabar Gold commercial with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Manushi Chillar below:
In the episode “Coffee with Karan”, Karan Johar asked Aamir Khan about Kareena Kapoor Khan not being the first choice for the role of Laal Singh Chaddha. To this, the Dangal star said, “No, because we were actually thinking about the age group. Both characters go from 18 to 50 years of life. Initially, we thought that the less rejuvenation, the better. So only I have to de-age. We considered the age group of 25 (years). So that the actress can look younger and older.”
Aamir continued, “The casting director mentioned some new actress who was a rookie. He showed us her video. Karina was also in this advertisement. We watched the video for someone else. Advait (Advait Chandan) and I watched and this girl was also very nice; but when we saw Karina in it, we got lost in Karina. We both looked at each other and said Karina. Initially, we didn’t think about her because we thought (choose someone who was) 25. We were stuck in that 25, which was stupid. She, too, can go through rejuvenation with me and whatever it takes, and I’m so glad we saw this ad because I can’t imagine anyone else in this role other than Kareena.”
Laal Singh Chadda featuring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be released next week on August 11, 2022.
