'Langda Tyagi' was Aamir Khan's brain: Vishal Bhardwaj
Mumbai: Bollywood director Vishal Bhardwaj, who made his identity in the industry with blockbuster 'Omkara', revealed some secrets about the film on Sunday. He said, Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan was the one who inspired him to make the film and had a keen desire to play 'Langda Tyagi' in it.

'Langda Tyagi' was the role which turned the table in Nawab Saif Ali Khan's favour and developed his image in the industry.

The movie was based on a tragedy 'Othello', written by the legendary writer William Shakespeare. The film rolled on the floors in 2006. It was Aamir Khan who talked to me about the film and the character and encouraged me to go for it. He also assured me of doing the role of Langda Tyagi.

"We (Aamir and me) used to talk about the film, which went to vain after some differences occurred," said Bhardwaj on the sideline of NFDC Film Bazar.

"When we were together, Aamir used to tell me about Othello and his character. So, he encouraged me to do something to make and assured me of doing the role himself. Therefore, he asked me to come to him after a year, when the script is ready. But for now, I had made up my mind to prefer Saif instead of him," added the filmmaker.

"I was so convinced seeing the eagerness of Aamir for the role. I thought, when he is interested in the role than there must be something in it. So, I went to Saif and he confirmed the role straight-away. He was fed up of his lover-boy image and wanted to move on. And the role really done the trick for the superstar," said Bhardwaj.

Saif was crowned with a 'Filmfare' award for performing the memorable role. Vishal Bhardwaj is working on his upcoming flick 'Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola' featuring Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapoor.
