“Maybe you haven’t watched Lagaan”
Actor Aamir Khan has taken to social media to respond to Ravi Shastri’s critical scrutiny of his fighting skills. The actor, who is currently preparing the release of his ambitious project Laal Singh Chaddha, played cricket in a viral video and asked him if he could play in one of the Indian Premier League teams.
The former Indian cricket captain was quick to point out that the seasoned actor needs to work on his footwork, but he’s been lucky enough to make it to a few IPL teams. Shashtri said: “He looks fine. He probably needs to spend some time on his footwork. But should fit in most teams.” However, the 57-year-old actor didn’t take the criticism, posting a video saying he was “disappointed” by her review.
Aamir Khan reacts to Ravi Shastri’s review of his batting skills
Aamir Khan Productions shared the video of the Rank of Basanti star speaking to Ravi Shastri and responding to his criticism. The actor said he was “disappointed” and asked the former cricketer to watch his 2001 film Lagaan. Director Ashutosh Gowariker’s film showed Khan as Bhuvan who led a group of villagers to victory in a cricket match against the British, waiving taxes for his village for the next three years.
The video was posted with the caption, “When the boss asks, you deliver. #AamirKhan started working on his footwork. @ravishastriofficial toh selection pakka samjhe na?”. In the video, Aamir Khan said: ”Ravi, I’m a bit disappointed that you didn’t like my footwork. Maybe you haven’t seen Lagaan. Please watch it again. Any team would be lucky to have me. Please recommend me properly. ”He keeps moving his legs animatedly in front of the stumps while playing ball and says, ”It will be fun. Watch this if you want some footwork.”
Director Advait Chandan Laal Singh Chaddha is an Indian adaptation of the critically acclaimed 1994 film Forrest Gump. The film also stars Kareena Kapoor and is set to be released on August 11.
