New Delhi:

The new episode of Coffee With Karan 7, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, aired at midnight, but it was worth the wait. During the show, Aamir Khan revealed that Kareena was not the first choice for Roopa’s character in Laal Singh Chaddha and that the actress took a screen test for the first time in her 22-year career. Kareena also added that it was her husband Saif Ali Khan who convinced her for the screen test, saying it was “really cool”. Kareena said: “Aamir was very sure that I had to do a screen test for the role. And it’s clearly the first movie in my career that I think… It was actually Saif who told me, he said listen, I think it’s really cool because only Aamir Khan can really tell someone this that you should do a screen test for a role. Because he thought everyone does. He said I’m glad you should do it and you should do it. They have bought a camera for my office they made me stage the scene because he acted like i wasn’t sure it was because of saif i was like no one had ever done because here i don’t know if i’ll do it in 22 years never did.’

The 41-year-old actress added that she was “nervous” about the screen test, saying: “It wasn’t ego, it was just that I had never done it before so I was nervous. And when I told Saif, he said I think it’s really cool You should do it And I actually told ya what the hell What will happen He’ll say it didn’t work So it’s fine I said it’s Aamir And “If I did it. Do it. It will be for Aamir. So I said listen whatever it is, I’m going to take the plunge and have fun with it.”

Aamir Khan also revealed that Kareena was not the first choice for the role. He said he and the film’s director, Advait, saw an ad that featured Kareena with another actress, whom they were considering casting. However, they changed their mind and thought that Kareena would be the right choice for the role. “Advait and I were watching and that girl was also very good, but when we saw Kareena in it, we were lost in Kareena. We looked at each other and we said Kareena. We didn’t think of her originally because we thought 25. We were stuck in those 25 which was stupid she too can age with me and whatever and i’m so glad we saw that ad because i can’t imagine anyone else in this role but kareena,” said Amir Khan .

Aamir also revealed that he is “very stressed” about the film and that it took about 8-9 years to get the film rights and about 14 years to make the film.

Laal Singh Chaddhaa remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gumpis scheduled for release on August 11.
