Even though Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, received bad reviews from critics for its performance at the box office, there is no denying its heart. The eternal appeal of the film is much more significant to Mona Singh, who plays the mother of the main character in the Indian remake of Forrest Gump (1994), than its financial success.
During an interaction with Mid Day, Singh said that when the movie debuts on Netflix, more people will see it and will view things differently. The short-term success or failure of this movie cannot be determined. People will remember it for a very long time, she predicts, proud of their labour of love. The actor is thrilled to have a part in such a nice movie.
She made her film debut in the comedy-drama 3 Idiots (2009), directed by Rajkumar Hirani and one of the highest-grossing Indian movies ever. The film features Aamir Khan, R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead roles.
Thus, in Laal Singh Chaddha, Singh reunited with Aamir and Kareena on the big screen.
The actor's next project is Ek Chup, which is a short film directed by Sonya V. Kapoor. The film examines how domestic violence instances have increased as a result of the pandemic. As a female actor, Mona claims that working on the project was upsetting and triggering. They read about divorce and abuse cases while they were under lockdown. People were acting unusually, and the script caught her attention.
Although it is a serious topic, it is written delicately. They read a lot and participated in workshops. It's difficult to depict internal conflict on TV, so the character had to be internalised. She hopes that the movie will advance the dialogue on domestic violence and emotional abuse.
