Aamir Khan has added another feather to his cap by launching his own podcast, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha Ki Kahaaniyan,’ in which he discusses the making of his upcoming film and also reveals who was intended to sing the song ‘Kahani,’ which was released just a few days ago. Aamir Khan delves into the elements of everything that went into composing the musical marvel as part of an innovative, avant-garde promotional campaign for the upcoming film directed by Advait Chandan.
While sharing various anecdotes about the film and the first song, ‘Kahani,’ he also noted that getting Laal Singh Chaddha made took several years. He explained, “The film will celebrate 14 years since its inception in June-July. It’s been a long and winding road. We were behind on the film’s rights for the first few years.”
Aamir Khan explained why he chose to release ‘Kahani’ as a lyrical video “I wanted people to simply listen to Pritam and Amitabh Bhattacharya’s song. We trust the singers to produce something that doesn’t require the movie’s graphics. I wanted everyone to hear the song and have an emotional reaction to it.”
Amitabh Bhattacharya inquired during one of the meetings if the song’s essence may be similar to Raj Kapoor’s timeless song ‘Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai’ from Anari. Aamir concurred with Amitabh and described the experience of watching “Kahani” as “philosophical.”
Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, and Viacom18 Studios are producing Laal Singh Chaddha. The film will be released in theatres globally on August 11, 2022.
