Actor Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha has been delayed once again.
The film, originally slated for a Christmas 2020 release, was reportedly to hit the theatres on Valentine’s Day 2022.
As per the source, the much-anticipated film has been postponed again and will now release only around mid-2022.
Reports circulating on media suggest that The Valentine’s Day slot is now have been locked by a big production banner for its yet-untitled upcoming relationship drama starring an A-lister, and the official announcement of that could arrive anytime soon.
“Laal Singh Chaddha’s post-production will take a lot of time. There’s so much work pending in its post-production and it can no way be ready for a February release. It’s a film made on a big canvas and requires at least six months of post-production work. Aamir and the makers don’t want to compromise on the quality of the film and hence have collectively decided to postpone it again by 2-3 months to make it as envisioned. A new release date, however, is not locked yet,” a source close to the project informed the portal.
The film is a remake of Tom Hankins’ 1994 classic, Forrest Gump, reportedly shot at dozens of locations around India.
Directed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya, and Mona Singh.
