Today, Lagaan: Once upon a time in India, completes 20 glorious years since its launch and entered the history of cinema. Lagaan, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and produced by Aamir Khan, was a remarkable film in many ways. The historical drama is currently available on Netflix in over 190 countries.
As Lagaan completes two decades, Netflix, Aamir Khan Productions and Ashutosh Gowariker will come together to celebrate this historic moment in Indian cinema through a festive reunion that will feature Lagaan’s team. The reunion titled Chale Chalo Lagaan – Once Upon An Impossible Dream will air on Netflix India’s YouTube channel.
Lagaan, an ode to team spirit, was one of three Indian films to be nominated in the Best Foreign Language category at the 74th Academy Awards and received widespread critical and commercial acclaim.
Speaking of Lagaan’s great trip, Aamir Khan said, “We broke our backs doing Lagaan, but our hearts were full of joy. Lagaan has filled us all with so much love. I am very grateful to all my fellow travelers on this magical journey. Starting with Ashu and his team of screenwriters, the entire cast and team, all our partners, our distributors, my seniors in the film industry who have given their wholehearted support, the exploitation sector, and most importantly, our audience, I cannot thank all of you enough. Lagaan is something I am extremely grateful for and will always cherish every memory of this current trip. It’s also so wonderful to see that Lagaan’s journey continues, and I can’t wait to reconnect with the Lagaan gang thanks to this initiative of Netflix. RE BHAIYYA CHHUTEY LAGAAN !!! ”
Celebrating this incredible milestone, film director Ashutosh Gowariker said, “My ultimate dream was to create something that will stay in the minds of audiences. That it will be appreciated in 20 years is something unimaginable. It is overwhelming for me and for the entire film crew that this dream has come true. Lagaan is the story of people coming together and staying united through thick and thin. Today, thanks to this special show with Netflix, we come together here and celebrate what people really believed in, which makes it an extremely proud moment. “
