Kareena has been promoting Laal Singh Chaddha in full swing with Aamir. The film marks their third film together. During their recent appearance on Koffee With Karan 7, Aamir confessed Kareena wasn’t the first choice for Laal Singh Chaddha.
Both Aamir and the makers of the film were looking for fresh and young female actors for the female lead. Since the movie portrayed a span from 18 to 50 years, it was decided that the younger version of the female protagonist would befit younger female actors.
Laal Singh Chaddha’s casting director showed an advertisement video of newcomers to Aamir, for him to select the one best suited for the film. Coincidentally, the video also featured Kareena. When the director of the film, Advait Chandan along with Aamir watched Kareena’s video they were awestruck by it and decided to cast her instead in an instant. The Dangal actor added that after they were done watching the advertisement video clip, they could not think of any other actor to play the role.
