Happy Birthday Aamir Khan: When Mr Perfectionist got jittery at the thought of working with Sridevi, here's why
When Aamir Khan had gotten major cold feet while working with the legendary actress Sridevi.
Today marks the birthday of Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood aka Aamir Khan (March 14). The superstar has had a celebrated body of work in an illustrious filmography. However, there was a time when Aamir despite his all-rounder tag had gotten jittery to work opposite none other than the then-Lady Superstar, Sridevi . Let us take you on a trip down memory lane to find out why Aamir turned down an opportunity to star alongside the late actress.
Talking about the same, according to a news report in BollywoodLife, Aamir Khan was then enjoying his superstardom which he garnered after delivering a string of hits including the romantic flick Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak . Needless to say, the actor started being in demand and was offered many movies by some acclaimed directors wherein he was also offered a film opposite Sridevi. A filmmaker managed to rope in the two talented actors and everything was almost finalized until the Taare Zameen Par actor developed cold feet.
Well, the reason behind this was Aamir Khan felt that his pairing with Sridevi will not look quite convincing on screen. The Dangal actor felt that since he played a college boy in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and was known for his chocolate boy looks, he would look much younger than Sridevi who was then quite a senior artist. Reportedly, along with this, Aamir also wanted to explore working with younger and fresher talents like Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit. Well, sadly due to this reason, the movie was scrapped but not without a beautiful photoshoot that the two actors had done together.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Aamir Khan’s last venture Laal Singh Chaddha sadly tanked at the box office. The movie fell prey to the Boycott Bollywood brigade. The megastar then announced a hiatus from acting and is thus currently on a break.
