New Delhi:

Veteran actor Dalip Tahil, who is best known for playing antagonists in Bollywood films, in a recent interview with eTimes revealed he was 31 when he played Aamir Khan’s father in the 1998 film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. The actor told ETimes, “I won’t be taking names, but a lot of people have refused. Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. I was 31 when I played Aamir’s father in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. And I didn’t even think before taking on this role. Aamir was then a teenager. I heard the prologue and I agreed to make the film even before hearing it further. I wasn’t even a father myself back when I played Aamir Khan’s father, I wasn’t even married.”

Recalling how he was cast in the project starring Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla, Dalip Tahil added, “A lot of great actors refused Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. It was to be done with Mr. Sanjeev Kumar and Mr. Shammi Kapoor. At that time, Nasir Hussain Saab was going to direct the film. But he suffered a heart attack and doctors advised him not to take on the burden of leadership. He gave the film to his son Mansoor, who loved the subject, but then said that it was impossible for me to work with Sanjeev Kumar and Shammi Kapoor, because they are too old. The film therefore underwent a complete overhaul and it was offered to quite a few players in the industry.

Dalip Tahil is best known for starring in projects like Buniyaad, Darr, Baazigar, Ishq, Ra.A and Bhag Milkha Bhag, to name a few. His film credits also include Gandhi, Ankur, Shakti, Arth and Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Keamong others.
