Actor Aamir Khan, who is busy promoting his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha, recently shared a video of him playing cricket with the film’s crew. He asked them towards the end of the video whether he has a chance to make it to an IPL team. Now, former cricketer Ravi Shastri has responded, sharing that while Aamir definitely has the necessary skills, he needs to spend some time practising his footwork!
In the clip shared by Star Sports, Ravi is heard saying, “He looks good in the nets. Probably, he needs to spend some time on his footwork. But [he] should get into most teams.”
Laal Singh Chaddha is all set to release on August 11 this year after several postponements, has been a project that took 14 years to be made. In a recent podcast, Aamir revealed that next month, it will be 14 years since the film started shooting.
“In June-July, the film will complete 14 years, since we started it. It has been quite a journey. First few years, we were running behind the rights of the film.” Aamir said. Further, spoke about Laal Singh Chaddha’s first song Kahani, which was released a few days back.
He revealed the reason behind releasing the lyrical video and said that the audience has stopped listening to songs, and we have stopped hearing the songs. The Rang De Basanti star said, “I wanted people to just listen to the song created by Pritam and Amitabh Bhattacharya. We have confidence in the singers that whatever they’ve created doesn’t need the film’s visuals. I wanted that everyone should listen to the song and experience it.”
