Actor-producer Aamir Khan released a documentary titled Chale Chalo on the journey of his film Lagaan. The epic drama film was the third Indian film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
“I am so glad I can show this film to the nation. I am extremely happy for the first time we will see this film live. This film is about the journey of how we made Lagaan and we wanted to make it on record,” said Aamir.
The screening of Chale Chalo took place at the Yash Raj Studios and was simultaneously premiered on TV.
“For me, this journey is now like a family album. I can even watch it 20 years down the line and enjoy it. I am so glad that the nation can watch it with us now,” Aamir told reporters during the screening of Chale Chalo.
“It’s a documentary film and we have also won a national award for best documentary,” he added.
Karan Johar hosted the show and interacted with Aamir Khan during the commercial break.
