PeepingMoon Exclusive: Mona Singh plays Aamir Khan's mother in Laal Singh Chaddha!


Aamir Khan's much-anticipated Laal Singh Chaddha reunites him with his 3 Idiots co-stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh. While Kareena plays his love interest in the human drama, the makers haven't divulged any details about Mona's character. They have so far refrained from revealing any details of the movie except the casting. However, Singh's role will not be a secret anymore as we have got an exclusive update on the same. sources have learned that Mona Singh plays the role of Aamir Khan's mother in Laal Singh Chaddha. Aamir and Mona's casting is quite surprising considering the latter is 16 years younger than Aamir who plays the titular role in this Advait Chandan directorial adapted from the Tom Hanks classic, Forrest Gump. However, the sources close to the project clarify that the "age disparity between Aamir and Mona" doesn't make a difference as Mona's scenes are with the child actor playing the young Laal Singh Chaddha. She doesn't have scenes with Aamir and will be seen in only flashback sequences.

"Mona Singh is playing the role essayed by Sally Field in the original 1994 Hollywood classic, Forrest Gump. She plays a strong single mother who loves her son unconditionally and raises him to believe that he's no different from anyone else despite his low IQ. It's only through her love and strength that Laal Singh Chaddha makes a significant impact in some of the key Indian events during 1968 and 2018," the source told us, adding that Mona's dialogues are more like slogans that keep the hero up and running throughout his life.

Laal Singh Chaddha chronicles several decades in the life of an intellectually disabled man who witnesses several defining historical events such as Emergency, 1983 Cricket World Cup, Operation Blue Star, the Rath Yatra, and the 1999 Kargil War among others. The film traces his journey from India's independence to present-day India and shows Aamir aging from 20 to 80. Also starring Naga Chaitanya, the film was earlier supposed to release next Valentine's day weekend but has now been pushed to April 2022 due to the pending post-production work.
