New Delhi: When director Ashutosh Gowariker narrated the story of ‘Lagaan’ to Aamir Khan, Aamir felt that this story was not suitable for him. He found this to be a very complicated subject. But later he worked in the film and it became a big film in the history of Indian cinema.

Inspired by film production

The film, based on a cricket match between a cricket novice villager and the British then ruling India, received a nomination in the Oscars in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. Aamir later not only made up his mind to work in this film but also made it his first production film in 2001. Aamir said that he took inspiration from big directors like Guru Dutt, V Shantaram, K Asif, Raj Kapoor and Bimal Roy and decided to produce the film.

20 years of ‘Lagaan’

On the occasion of completion of 20 years of the film, Aamir said, ‘If those people had faith in the story, they used to make it. He was very bold in the selection of subjects. I had a similar feeling when I thought of working in ‘Lagaan’ and producing it.

Something like this was Gowariker’s thinking

Aamir said he had faith in Gowariker’s thinking and his initial hesitation about doing ‘Lagaan’ was due to the fact that it broke several rules. It was a little different from all Bollywood movies, set in the backdrop of British India, and was about four hours long. Aamir said, ‘I really liked Ashutosh narrating the story to me but I thought it was a very complicated subject to make a film and I was not going to get into it. Ashutosh started meeting people in Bollywood with the script of this film and I used to hear about it every six months. It was 1997-98 when he was still walking around with the story.

‘Lagaan’ broke many rules!

When asked if this was the beginning for him to go with such a bold script, Aamir said that he has always worked with this mindset in choosing films, be it ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ or ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi’. Sikander’, or ‘Sarfarosh’ came before ‘Lagaan’. He said, “But in terms of ‘Lagaan’, it was made at a time when people were wearing designer clothes and shooting in Switzerland. Here we were wearing ‘Bundi’ and ‘Dhoti’ and talking in ‘Awadhi’. We were breaking many rules of mainstream cinema.

Aamir said that he is happy that he became a film producer with this film in 2001 and started his own banner. This helped him take many big decisions, such as completing the shooting in a one-time schedule. He said that this had never happened before. Apart from this, he used the state-of-the-art sync-sound recording system of the time and for the first time introduced the system of assistant director.

Aamir did not listen to Karan and Aditya

He said, ‘I remember meeting Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra at a party a few days before the shooting of the film, then they told me that I am making a big mistake. He advised me not to shoot in the same schedule. He said that there will be a lot of mess but I stuck to my thinking. And today both Aditya Chopra and Karan use sync sound and shoot in a single schedule.

‘Lagaan’ made in 25 crores

Aamir said working on and producing ‘Lagaan’ has been an “important chapter” in his life. He said that in a village 35 km from Bhuj in Gujarat, the team prepared every house on its own with the help of local people. It was the most expensive film of its time. He started the film with a budget of 12 crores and eventually it cost Rs 25 crores.
