Aamir Khan’s ambitious film Laal Singh Chaddha, which was earlier scheduled to release during Christmas 2021 this year, is once again being pushed ahead of its scheduled release date. If industry insiders are to be believed, Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Naga Chaitanya’s Laal Singh Chaddha may now release in theaters on 14 April 2022. Lal Singh Chaddha, a Hindi remake of the Hollywood film Forrest Gump (1994), has been adapted to suit the Indian audience.
Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha release date changed
An industry source informed Bollywood Hungama about the new release date of Laal Singh Chaddha and said, “Lal Singh Chaddha is a heavy VFX film in which Aamir’s character will be shown rising and falling, for which special techniques will be used. And this process is taking more time than expected because Aamir wants to show it with perfection. Although this technique has been used in many films but Aamir is very clear about it that he will get world class big screen. So they have now decided to release Laal Singh Chaddha on 14th April 2022.”
Aamir is planning to avoid box office clash
Interestingly, if Laal Singh Chaddha releases on 14th April 2022 then it will have to compete with the much awaited KGF 2 at the box office. Regarding this, the source said, “Well, Laal Singh Chaddha’s team is considering several dates between April and May and April 14 is just one of them. Apart from this, Eid weekend i.e. 28 for the release of Laal Singh Chaddha. April 2022 has also been considered.
Aamir is also in talks with Sajid Nadiadwala (Heropanti 2) and Ajay Devgn (Meday), to avoid the box office clash. A decision on the release of the film will be taken in a day or two. But it is sure that Laal Singh Chaddha is not releasing on 11th February 2022.
Let us tell you that the story of the film starts in 1968 with the childhood of the main character and ends in the year 2018. So the historical events that happened in India during this period will be covered.
Aamir will be seen in the role of a Sikh man for the first time in Laal Singh Chaddha. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen opposite Aamir in this film. Written by Atul Kulkarni, the film will be directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Viacom18 Studios and Aamir Khan Productions.
