Twenty-one years ago on June 15, 2001, Ashutosh Gowariker’s historical fictional sports drama broke all kinds of records when it released in cinemas.
The Aamir Khan starrer movie was critically acclaimed as well and it even went on to be nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language film category.
To commemorate 21 years of this iconic movie, Aamir Khan is all set to reunite with his ‘Lagaan’ team mates at his house today.
‘Lagaan’ remains one of the most successful Hindi movies of all times and it is considered an evergreen timeless movie that captivates and enthralls audiences even today. With its Oscar nomination, it became only the second movie after ‘Mother India’ in the history on Indian cinema to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
Even though it has been 21 years the popularity of the movie has not dimmed. Last year to mark the 20th year of celebrations the entire team of ‘Lagaan’ had gotten together for a virtual meet up to celebrate two decades of this timeless blockbuster. They kept it virtual due to the restrictions in place owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This year, though, since things are better, the team decided to have an in person meet up and intimate celebration reminiscing the time they had shooting for a movie that will go down in history as an all-time favourite mass entertainer.
On the work front, Aamir Khan is all geared up and busy promoting his upcoming movie, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ which releases in cinemas on August 11, 2022.
