Aamir’s proud ‘Lagaan’ legacy

When ‘Lagaan’ released in 2001, it created a rage and now after a decade, Aamir Khan celebrated the film’s 10 years and his own 10 years in production with a stylish party.
The actor invited all those who were part of ‘Lagaan’ and also the teams of all the films produced under his banner ‘Aamir Khan Productions’.
“I’m very happy to meet my entire team of ‘Lagaan’ after so long. The film has completed 10 years. It’s so nice to meet all these people and celebrate with them,” Aamir said.
“Teams of all the other films are also here. I thank them that such great talents have worked with our production house and made it what it is today,” he added.
A special screening of a film based on the making of ‘Lagaan’ was also organised for the guests who included Ashutosh Gowariker, Imran Khan, Javed Akhtar, Gracy Singh and many others.
In 2002, ‘Lagaan’ was nominated for the best foreign language film at the Oscars but it didn’t win the award. Amitabh Bachchan, who was the narrator in ‘Lagaan’, also made an appearance.
“I’m happy and proud that my name is associated with such a great actor, director and producer like Aamir Khan and with a film like ‘Lagaan’ that created waves even internationally,” Amitabh said. Also present at the party was Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao, who was an assistant director on the sets of ‘Lagaan’, and his ex-wife Reena Dutta was also present. Aamir also ruled out the possibility of a sequel to ‘Lagaan’. “We will not make a sequel of this film. That’s for sure,” he said.
