Bollywood actor Aamir Khan had doubts about the success of his debut film, ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, released in 1988. He and the film’s director, Mansoor Khan, repeatedly watched the film until its release, yet remained dissatisfied with their work. “Whenever Mansoor and I watched the film, we only saw flaws,” Aamir admitted at an event in Mumbai on Monday, April 22.

Aamir recently launched the song ‘Papa Kehte Hain 2.0’ from the film ‘Srikanth’, alongside lead actor Rajkummar Rao. The song is a revamped version of the iconic ‘Papa Kehte Hain’ from ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’. Reflecting on its significance, Aamir shared, “It’s the song that marked the beginning of my career. It holds a very special place in my heart.”

The actor fondly reminisced about the making of ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, which also featured Juhi Chawla in the lead role. “We were all newcomers in that film, and it was a very exciting journey,” Aamir recalled, praising the support they received from the film’s producer Nasir Hussain.

Despite their efforts, Aamir admitted to feeling uncertain regarding the audience’s reception of the romantic drama. “At the time, we were unsure about our success,” he confessed, while adding, “Whenever Mansoor and I would watch the film, humein sirf khaamiyan nazar aati thi (we would only see flaws). We would always be engrossed in those conversations. We would keep discussing how that scene could have been better or how we could have done this scene differently.”

However, upon its release on April 29, 1988, the film received widespread acclaim, putting an end to Aamir’s apprehensions.

“But one day that film released, and we lost our hold on it. Then it was exciting to see the kind of love it got. I love to believe that ‘Qayamat Se Qayamnt Tak’ was a milestone in Indian cinema. It changed the whole sensibility of Indian cinema from then onwards. From 1988, you can see the shift happening. Mansoor was the first director to bring that about. It was a special film for me in every way,” concluded Aamir.

Aamir Khan was last seen in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. After the film’s debacle, the actor took a hiatus from films. Now, he is set to return to the big screen with ‘Sitaare Zameen Par’, slated for release this Christmas.
