Mona Singh clarifies the age gap between her and her onscreen son Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan's latest film 'Laal Singh Chaddha' has been facing a lot of negativity at the moment but for the most part the movie has managed to live upto the high expectations of the audience. However, one issue that several people have pointed out was actress Mona Singh's casting as Laal Singh Chaddha's mother. Apparently Mona is 40 years old and she's playing mother of Aamir's character who himself is 57 years old.

Recently, Mona addressed this issue during a media interaction. The actress told India Today, "There was the whole thing [ debate] going on. I didn't want to talk about it before because I wanted people to see the movie. And I am an actor. I am not playing Aamir Khan's mother, I am playing Laal's mother. As Laal ages, I age in the movie. It is not an Aamir Khan biopic where he is 57 and I am 40 and playing a mother. That would be wrong."

She added, "Honestly, it did not once cross my mind that I might be doing the wrong thing. I was so confident and sure that most people would not question the age gap once they watched the film."

Mona further added that she believes she'll more opportunities to do unique characters after her stint in 'Laal Singh Chaddha'. She said, "I hope I get offered more diverse roles as I have always believed in quality over quantity."
