At the event, Aamir Khan spoke about the impact that South cinema is now having on the audience. “Cinema coming out of any region, in this case, it is Telugu cinema – KGF 2 is a Kannada film – they all have come from the South of India and they have really won the hearts of audiences across the country. I remember when KGF 2 was about to release, there was a lot of audience amongst Hindi audience among my own friends. I must say, Laal Singh (Chaddha) was supposed to release on that day, but fortunately for us Red Chillies was taking a little time on VFX and we got saved otherwise we would have come in KGF 2,” said Aamir.


“It is wonderful to see that cinema coming out of one state of India can actually successfully give joy and entertainment to the whole country. It’s a celebration time for us when that happens,” added Aamir Khan.

Laal Singh Chaddha is produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, and Viacom18 Studios. Directed by Advait Chavan, the film is the official Hindi adaption of Tom Hanks’ Hollywood film, Forrest Gump.
