Aamir Khan's film Lagaan was released in the year 2001. At that time this film had received praise all over the world. The character of Lakkha was played by Yashpal Sharma in this film. Now he has talked about his character in the film and the fees he received for the role of Lakkha. Yashpal has told many things.

Yashpal Sharma, who played the character of Lakkha in one of Aamir Khan's most memorable films Lagaan, has said that he liked his character in the film more than Aamir's character of Bhuvan. During this, he also revealed about the fees he received for the character he played in the film. Yashpal Sharma's character was much liked in Lagaan.

In an interview, Yashpal told that when he got the role of Lakkha in Lagaan, I was very happy because I found Lakkha's role to be the best in the film. In fact, I liked Lakha's role more than Aamir Khan's lead role, because there were many variations in it. Negative, positive, love angle and jealousy. There were many emotions in that character. He told that he had to audition for the role of Lakkha.

He told that he got a message in which it was said that you have been selected for the role of Lakkha. Yashpal said that he was very happy that he got the role and that he would work with Aamir Khan.

how much fee did you get

Yashpal himself narrated the story of the fees for the film. He told that he had discussed the fees with Reen Dutta, the producer of Lagaan and Aamir Khan's wife at that time. He said, “The next day, I went to meet Reena Khan (then Aamir Khan's wife). She was one of the producers. On the way, I kept thinking about how much money I should ask him for the role.”

He said that I was from a poor family but I told myself not to settle for less than Rs 1 lakh. But I was also scared that they might take someone else. So I thought I should ask for Rs 50 thousand. I was ready to do the work even if they give me Rs 20,000.

However, when I reached her office, Reena ji told me that she does not have much budget, hence she is giving only Rs 1.5 lakh to everyone. On this I said no madam, please give me at least two lakhs. Don't know what happened at that time but she agreed. Yashpal said that later I was thinking that even if I had asked for Rs 5-10 lakh, perhaps she would have agreed.
