It may take many years for Aamir Khan to bring his film on the screen, but he prepares closely for it. From the story of the film to the character and its look, Aamir works very carefully. That’s why Aamir Khan is called ‘Mr. Perfectionist’. Aamir Khan’s film ‘Lagaan’ is considered his best film. The film was also sent from the country to the Oscars. But now Aamir has noticed a big mistake in this film, which he has mentioned in an interview.
Story of Lagaan and character of Bhuvan
Aamir Khan was seen in the character named Bhuvan in Lagaan. The film was set against the backdrop of a village which is suffering from drought. Bhuvan lives in the same village. All the villagers are in bad condition because of the drought. Due to lack of rain, the crop dries up and the British have to pay rent. That’s why Bhuvan (Aamir’s character) holds a cricket challenge with the British. If he won, the British would not have to pay rent. Bhuvan’s character was shown completely clean shaven in this film. Aamir considers this to be the biggest mistake. ‘Lagaan’ was released in 2001 and was directed by Ashutosh Gowariker.

Aamir has a problem with Bhuvan’s clean shave
Aamir Khan, in a recent conversation with IMDB, spoke about the things in ‘Lagaan’ that he was not satisfied with and wanted changed. One of these was Bhuvan’s look. Amir says there is no water in the village. It is dry and in such a situation, Bhuvan shaves daily, which is not right from anywhere. Aamir said that if he makes ‘Lagaan’ today, he will make it in a completely different way.

Aamir told this reason
Aamir said about this, ‘I will say again to Ashutosh that Bhuvan’s character should not be clean shaven. At that time also I emphasized on this point. I said there is no water. It is not raining here. People are suffering and this guy is shaving daily. Does he have any secret water supply?
‘If I get to make it again, I will grow a beard’
According to Aamir, Ashutosh Gowariker did not heed his advice at that time. However, Ashutosh Gowariker wanted to show Aamir Khan in a special look in the film. He emphasized that it is important for Bhuvan to be clean shaven. That’s why he wanted to show Aamir in the same look. But Aamir did not understand any meaning of this. He said, ‘So today if I have to make a rent, then I will tell the director that we go according to the growth. I will let my beard grow this time.

Now Aamir is in discussion about his film ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’, which is releasing on August 11. The film also stars Naga Chaitanya and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
