“If given a chance, I’d put back Aamir Khan’s cradle sequence for which he cried and fought with me in Raja Hindustani. I had to cut it because of length,” said Dharmesh Darshan as he spoke exclusively to Bollywood Hungama’s Content Head Broadband Faridoon Shahryar on his blockbuster film Raja Hindustani completing 20 years on November 15. “It was a brilliant 15 minute scene when Aamir Khan comes to know that the child is there. He goes in the house and the child is not there as Karisma had taken the child to see a doctor. He cries. Archana Puran Singh, Pramod Moutho and Mohnish Bahl get him beaten up, throw him out of the house and tell him that Karisma doesn’t want him. He did it very, very well. That is when Aamir Khan gets aggressive and kidnaps the child. I went to meet Aamir Khan in Film City at night to inform that the length was an issue and the producer wants it cut. He requested to retain, but, I couldn’t. If that sequence would have been retained, Aamir Khan could have won a National Award for his performance,” Dharmesh said.
