It was an evening of nostalgia as actor Aamir Khan, 48, hosted a gala to celebrate 25 years of his first film, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (QSQT), on April 29, in Mumbai.
The occasion was marked by a special screening of the 1988 hit, and was attended by director Mansoor Khan, the lead pair Aamir and Juhi Chawla, the movie’s cast and crew, as well as members of Aamir’s family, including his ex-wife Reena Dutta, son Junaid and daughter Ira.
“I am very happy that the entire cast has met after a long time. We all sat together and remembered all those old moments,” said Aamir.
Juhi, who credits QSQT as the foundation of her career, shared that it would be great to work on a sequel of the classic. “I am emotionally attached to it. If it (the film) is made again, then Aamir and I will act in it again,” says the 45-year-old. Actor Raj Zutshi, who played Aamir’s cousin in the film, says, “I have never watched a glimpse of this film in last 25 years, but when I watched it at the screening organised by Aamir, I
marvelled at the fantastic screenplay. We all want Mansoor to make a sequel to this film and I would definitely love to be a part of it.”
Actor Imran Khan, who played the role of young Aamir in the film, was also at the party. “I did see the film 25 years back, but I don’t remember much as I was very young. My mother told me that during the ending of this film, I cried a lot and had to be taken out of the hall, as Aamir mamu was dying in the scene,” says Imran.
