Mukesh Chhabra worked as a casting director on the Aamir Khan-starrer 'Laal Singh Chaddha.' The film, which is the Hindi remake of the 1994 film 'Forrest Gump,' released on August 11, 2022, and did not do well at the box office. 

In a new interview with The Lallantop, Chhabra revealed that despite not performing well at the box office, Aamir threw a party because he felt guilty. 

Mukesh said in Hindi: "After the movie flopped, I spoke to Aamir and Advait Chandan (director)… we couldn’t believe the movie had been thrashed. For a film to flop is one thing, but that it was a disaster… feels like a whole different thing altogether. Few people know this, but Aamir hosted a party for all of us in honour of the crew. He said, ‘Sorry the film didn’t work, but we should all meet’. Who does this? We were all wondering why they’re having a party, but they wanted all the departments to come together. Everyone was there, Advait, Pritam, Kareena, everyone was there, Amitabh Bhattacharya is singing songs from the film. Party was on Laal Singh Chaddha reunion. Aamir kept saying that it was his fault.”

Aamir is among the most devoted actors Mukesh has ever encountered in the film industry, he said in the same interview. He revealed that Aamir attended all of the film's auditions, acting alongside the potential candidates and giving feedback. "We auditioned a total of 13,000 girls for the four central roles, after a while, we narrowed it down to 400, then 200, then 100, and then, finally, to seven. He said he would like to personally audition with each girl," he said.

Aamir Khan has set Christmas 2024 as the release date for his upcoming movie, but he hasn't revealed what it would be.
