This film, released 16 years ago, not only created a stir at the box office but also made the audience cry with its heart-wrenching story. Artists became famous from acting to singing. Pradeep Rawat, who played the role of villain in this film, has now made a shocking revelation. He told that he was not in favor of taking 'angry' Salman Khan in the film, rather he was the one who suggested the name of 'calm nature' Aamir Khan to AR Murugadoss. Let us tell you what else Pradeep has said. The film 'Ghajini' is the Hindi remake of the 2005 Tamil film of the same name. When the Tamil film became a superhit, director AR Murugadoss thought of making it in Hindi also. He was desperate to make it in Hindi. Then Pradeep suggested him the name of Aamir Khan instead of Salman Khan. He also said that he is not in favor of casting 'angry' Salman. Since Aamir is of very calm nature, he was selected for this film.

Pradeep Rawat had suggested the name of Aamir Khan

Talking about this, actor Pradeep Rawat revealed why Salman Khan was not fit for this role! He said, AR Murugadoss kept saying 'I want to make it (Ghajini) in Hindi, I want to make it in Hindi…' I thought in my mind, 'Salman is angry and AR Murugadoss doesn't speak English or Hindi. 'He didn't even have a personality then.' Pradeep, who had worked with Aamir in films like 'Sarfarosh' (1999), thought that Aamir was better suited for the film due to his 'calm' nature.

'I thought Aamir would be better for this role'

72 year old Pradeep Rawat further said, 'I felt that Aamir would be the right choice for this role, because he is of a calm nature and treats everyone with respect. In the last 25 years, I have not seen Aamir shouting or screaming at anyone. He never insulted anyone or used foul language. So I thought that naturally Salman cannot be controlled, otherwise there will be unnecessary problems.
