Laapataa Ladies stars Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta and Sparsh Shrivastava along with Ravi Kishan, Chhaya Kadam and Geeta Agrawal Sharma in key roles. Netizens applauded the film’s ‘fresh storyline’ and Ravi Kishan’s acting chops. 

Kiran Rao revealed that Aamir Khan also auditioned for the movie, however, she rejected him. Talking about why he rejected Aamir Khan for Ravi Kishan’s role In the film, Kiran Rao said, “He did one test which was amazing. I keep feeling that someday we should put it out to show the world what he had done. He did a really good test. It really tempted all of us to go with it on some level. But the presence of a star in this kind of environment makes you very aware that you are watching a star. At that point, it shifts from being a very believable story you are immersed into something else.” 

She added why she chose Ravi Kishan over Aamir Khan and said, “Ravi ji brings an incredible earthy ras (flavour) to the character that is instinctive and authentic, something that nobody else can bring.”
