But what surprised moviegoers was the announcement of the release date of Aamir Khan’s “Laal Singh Chaddha”. Aamir, who avoided releasing his films on dates preoccupied with other films and opted for a fresh, solo release for a long period of his career, amazed fans by choosing Baisakhi Day (April 14, 2022). The announcement left many Southern fans upset as the creators of Yash’s “KGF: Chapter 2” had postponed their project until April 14, 2022 much earlier.

In a recent interview, Aamir revealed that the extended visual effects took a lot longer, causing the film to be delayed. “There are two ways to do the visual effects, you can do a rush job or you can go for a quality job.

Aamir added, “I hate to make it look like I’m encroaching on someone else’s territory, but as I’m playing a Sikh for the first time in my career, Baisakhi Day (April 14) seemed like the more suitable for the release of Laal Singh Chaddha. “

But that wasn’t all, as the Bollywood perfectionist also revealed that he is a huge fan of the KGF franchise and volunteered to promote the film after a long conversation with Southern superstar Yash. “Before finalizing the date, I apologized profusely to the producer, director and lead man of KGF Chapter 2.
