WHAT?

In the recent episode of Koffee With Karan, Aamir Khan revealed that Kareena Kapoor wasn't the 1st choice for Laal Singh Chaddha as the makers were looking for a 25-yr-old actress. Kareena gave a screen test for the film for the 1st time in her 22-yr-long career.

HOW?

Aamir Khan revealed on the chat show that Kareena Kapoor was not the first choice for Laal Singh Chaddha. He said that he and the film's director Advait were seeing an ad, in which Kareena featured with another actress, who they were considering to cast. However, they changed their mind and thought that Kareena would be the right pick. Karan Johar asked Aamir, “Kareena wasn’t your first choice, was she?” To which, Aamir said, “No because we were actually thinking about age group. Both the characters have a journey from 18 to 50 years of life. Initially we thought the lesser the de-aging the better. So only I should de-age. We were looking at the age group of 25 (years). So that the actress can look younger and older.”
