According to reports, the creators of Lagaan are still speaking with the producers of West End Show in order to make a final decision regarding the movie. Other possibilities are also being considered for the 2001 hit. “Aamir Khan’s team is yet to make a final decision about it. The makers have different plans which include doing a worldwide tour of the show that will feature a completely original cast,” Indian media reported.

Set in 1893, Lagaan is a landmark movie that explores the relationship Indians have with cricket and the atrocities they faced during the British Raj. It is also only the third Bollywood film to be nominated for an Oscar. Regardless of whether it gets a theatrical performance or not, the film continues to live on in the hearts of its fans.
