Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak movie is discussed

Aamir Khan’s film ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ was released in the year 1988. Juhi Chawla was in the lead role with him in this film. The film received a lot of love from the audience and proved to be a super hit. But no actor wanted to play Aamir Khan’s father, so finally Dalip Tahil bagged the role. After 28 years he said that he is only 10 years older than Aamir.

Dalip said that when the film came, no one wanted to play the role of a father. He said, “This was my father’s first role and this film turned out to be a big turning point for me. I am ten years older than Aamir. In fact, this was the reason why many actors did not take up the role because they did not want to play the role of a father. This is what Nasir Hussain Sir tells me. I was in my 30s at the time and I didn’t think twice about it, the role was great and so I did it.”

When the concept of typecast came

Dalip also said this when asked if he was worried that he would be stereotyped as an onscreen father after the film. To this he said that at the time it was not, but later found out that it was typecast. Dalip said, “There was no question of fearing the typecast as it was my first time. After that I got a lot of father roles and then I started worrying about being typecast, as this is a problem for all actors.
