Kareena Kapoor Khan and Aamir Khan attended the fifth episode of Karan Johar’s chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan Season 7’. They appeared together on the show for the first time and also promoted their upcoming film ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. Let us tell you that this will be the second time that Aamir and Kareena will create magic on the big screen. Earlier this pair was seen in the film ‘3 Idiots’.
During the episode, Aamir and Kareena had a fun chat with host Karan Johar. During one of the segments, Kareena asked Aamir about his first impressions about herself. Responding to this, Aamir said, “My first impression was that it was a really cute 12 year old girl sitting on the sets of Andaz Apna Apna. She used to come with Lolo (Karishma) and she would point to us. So, this is my first impression on you.” Remind you that ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ was released in 1994 and starred Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor and Raveena Tandon in the lead roles.
Kareena was not the first choice for ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’
Apart from this, Aamir revealed that Kareena was not his first choice to play the lead actress role in ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ as he was looking for a young face. During one of the segments, while talking about the film, Karan Johar asks Aamir Khan, “Kareena was not your first choice, was it?”
Aamir Khan replied saying, “No, because we were really thinking about the age group. Both the characters have a journey of 18 to 50 years of life. Initially we thought that the younger the age, the better – so only I should age. We were looking at the age group of 25. So that the actress can look small and big.
Can’t imagine anyone other than Kareena
During the show, Aamir Khan revealed that the casting director of the film mentioned some new actresses who were newcomers. He showed us his video. Kareena was also in that ad. Advaita and I were watching. We were watching a video for someone else. And that girl was also very nice but when we saw Kareena in her, we got lost in Kareena.
He further explains that both of us looked at each other and said Kareena. We didn’t think about her originally because we thought about the 25-year-old actress. We were stuck in that 25 which was an idiot. She too can age with me and whatever else is required and I am so glad we saw that ad because I can’t imagine anyone else in this role other than Kareena. ,
