So far, the wrath of COVID-19 has led to more and more delays in multiple films and their release dates. But it seems that films that are even fetched a date over three or four months away are also witnessing a postponement in release date apparently.
Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha, as of now is all set to release on April 14th of this year on the special occasion of Baisakhi. However, reports are now rife that the makers are contemplating postponing the movie once again.
The film will be locking horns with Yash starrer ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ at the box-office. Reports are rife that after seeing the response that ‘Pushpa’ has got and how the film overpowered Ranveer Singh starrer '83, the makers are now planning to push ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ ahead. Director Advait Chandan apparently doesn’t want to take chances, particularly with a franchise film that already has a fanbase, a report in a news portal stated.
Further, it added that the makers are now looking for a release window either side of Diwali weekend, though now bang during Diwali weekend as Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathan’ is expected to hit the theatres then.
KGF: Chapter 2 will also star Bollywood actors like Raveena Tandon and Sanjay Dutt in key roles.
Laal Singh Chaddha is an official Hindi remake of the Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’ that originally starred Tom Hanks in the lead role. The film stars Aamir in the lead role along with Kareena. It also features Naga Chaitanya and Mona Singh in key roles.
