Mona Singh On Being Aamir Khan’s Mother In Laal Singh Chaddha
Apparently many netizens were seen criticizing the makers of Laal Singh Chaddha for casting Mona Singh as Aamir Khan’s mother in the film since Mona is only 40 while she plays the mother of a 57-year-old actor Aamir Khan. Reacting to this Mona defended her role and said, that she is playing the mother of Laal Singh Chaddha and not Aamir Khan in the film.
In a conversation with India Today, Mona Singh said, “There was the whole thing going on. I didn’t want to talk about it before because I wanted people to see the movie. And I am an actor. I am not playing Aamir Khan’s mother, I am playing Laal’s mother. As Laal ages, I age in the movie.”
She further added, “It is not an Aamir Khan biopic where he is 57 and I am 40 and playing a mother. That would be wrong. Honestly, it did not once cross my mind that I might be doing the wrong thing. I was so confident and sure that most people would not question the age gap once they watched the film.”
Meanwhile, this is Mona’s another collaboration with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor after their film 3 idiots in which she was seen playing the role of Kareena Kapoor’s sister named, Mona. While in the recently released film Laal Singh Chaddha the actress was seen reprising the role of Sally Field from Forrest Gump.
