Bollywood biggie Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha will soon hit the cinemas on the 11th of August. The movie which is the Hindi remake of the Hollywood classic Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks, has been one of the most awaited movies in recent times. The release of the Advait Chandan directorial has been postponed quite a few times in the past, due to the pandemic and numerous other reasons. Speaking of which, at a latest event in Hyderabad, Aamir talked about the same. He stated how averting the clash with KGF Chapter 2 has been fortunate for them.
For the information, Laal Singh Chaddha was supposed to release in the theatres on the 14th of April this year: the same day that Yash’s KGF Chapter 2 hit the cinemas. However, Aamir’s movie was pushed back as the VFX on the film was not completed on time. Speaking about how Laal Singh Chaddha was ‘saved’ by averting clash with KGF 2, Aamir revealed “Laal Singh Chaddha was supposed to release on that day. But fortunately for us, Red Chillies was taking a little time on the VFX so we got saved! Otherwise, we would have come with KGF 2.”
Aamir also talked about the pan-India phenomenon when it comes to films and told, “KGF 2 is a Kannada film, there is Pushpa, Baahubali, RRR (all Telugu)… All these films have come from the south of India and have won the hearts of audiences across the country.”
