Aamir Khan’s Oscar-nominated film Lagaan recently celebrated its 21st anniversary and to mark the occasion the film’s crew had a reunion. Aamir Khan’s production house shared a video of the meeting on social media.
The video gives insights into the intimate party the actor hosted for filmmaker Ashutosh Gowarikar, actors Yashpal Sharma, Akhilendra Mishra, Raj Zutshi, Shankar Pandey, Raja Awasthi, Suhasini Mulay, Pradeep Ram Singh Rawat and Amin Gazi. Former Indian cricketers Irfan Pathan and Aakash Chopra also attended the celebrations.
Aamir Khan Productions shared a video from the party on Instagram and wrote: “#21YearsOfLagaan”. Irfan commented on the video, “What a lovely evening.” One fan wrote, “So adorable.” Another wrote, “What a wonderful idea to meet again after years, what fun it was…” Another said: “What a spectacular reunion!!!” Another wished Aamir’s upcoming movie to be a hit too, writing: “Hopefully one day we’ll celebrate 21 years of #lalsinghchaddha like this ❤️.”
The production house shared another video and wrote: “Thank you for all the love over the past 21 years! The Aamir Khan Productions journey began with #Lagaan and the film continues to be a part of our journey! Sach aur saahas hai jiske man mein, ant mein jeet usi ki rahein…”
Lagaan was a breakthrough film in Aamir’s career and it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Last year, as the film celebrated twenty years, Aamir Ashutosh thanked Gowarikar for giving him the opportunity to be a part of the film. He had said: “First of all I would like to thank Ashutosh (Gowariker) and all the cast and crew and partners and the entire exhibiting sector for their support. I would also like to thank the seniors in the film industry who stood behind the project and showered it with so much praise.”
He had also talked about how challenging it was to make the film at the time. “Lagaan was a film that made us pay our Lagaan in full. It was a very difficult film to make. We had to face many difficulties, but the film also brought the team many unforgettable memories, relationships and happiness,” he shared.
