Chandigarh, July 8
Punjabi actress Sargun Mehta and her Sohreyan Da Pind Aa Gaya co-star Gurnam Bhullar think Aamir Khan’s Punjabi accent in Laal Singh Chaddha is not up to the mark.
Aamir Khan, who is all set to play a Sikh man in his most-awaited film Laal Singh Chaddha, has received criticism for his Punjabi accent in the film’s trailer. Twitterati thinks ‘it looked artificial’.
Even Punjabi actors Sargun Mehta and Gurnam Bhullar have reacted to memes on Aamir Khan‘s Punjabi language skills in Laal Singh Chaddha.
Sargun Mehta believes Aamir could have done better. In an interview with India.com, Sargun Mehta said, “If Aamir would have said in pure Punjabi, nobody could have understood. If the superstar next does a Bengali film and uses too much of Bengali words, then we’ll be not able to understand it.”
She added, “Aamir sir is not a Punjabi and he has taken up a role. Actors are supposed to take versatile roles. I can say that he could have done a bit better but jitna bhi unhone kia hain bahot kaam and mehnat lagti hain sirf utna karne mein bhi. (Whatever he has done in the film, it takes a lot to get the results. He has worked really hard).”
Gurnam Bhullar, added to the thought. He said, “Basically, it’s national cinema that will be released pan India. The Hindi films have a mix of Punjabi, Marathi, Tamil, etc. We are the ones who point out these things. So it should not matter.”
Watch the trailer:
Laal Singh Chaddha is directed by Advait Chandan and stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya and Mona Singh. The film, a remake of Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, will release on August 11.
