Amongst several movies, his directorial, Lagaan released in the year 2001 not only impressed the audience but over the years, achieved the status of a cult classic. The historic drama had Aamir Khan and Gracy Singh in the lead roles. The film was set in the backdrop of 1893. However, recently Ashutosh divulged that he had originally planned to make the film in the era of 1885 but opted out of it later at the suggestion of the film’s costume designer. In a recent event held by Jio MAMI in Mumbai on Tuesday, September 26, the ace filmmaker, Ashutosh Gowariker talking about his iconic directorial, revealed, “Originally, the year was 1885. I chose 1885 as that was the year when the Indian National Congress (INC) was formed. I felt it would be nice to have the birth of the INC and the rise of Bhuvan as a hero.” Bhuvan was the name of the lead character, essayed by Aamir Khan .He further added, “I said I am okay to change the year but asked the reason for it. The costume designer of the film, Bhanu Athaiya explained to him that, ‘Queen Victoria was in mourning. She came out of it around 1890. That’s when the entire wardrobe changed from black and grey and became colorful’. I was absolutely blown. That showed how much knowledge she had,” the director revealed.
