Aamir Khan, who is busy promoting his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha, was recently asked about the film’s similarities with his 2014 hit PK. And here is what the actor has to say about such criticism.
Aamir on his acting similarities
After Laal Singh Chaddha’s trailer was released, netizens pointed out that Aamir Khan’s wide-eyed expressions were similar to the character he played in his 2014 hit PK.
Reacting to the comparisons, Aamir Khan said, “I think you all should watch the film and then decide. I will tell you why, because there is one similarity between Laal and PK and that is innocence. Laal is innocent and so is PK. This is a very strong quality that both of them have. So, in the trailer, you might not be able to see the difference which you will see in the whole performance.”
The actor responded to calls for a boycott
In Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan will be seen sharing screen space with his 3 Idiots co-stars Kareena Kapoor and Mona Singh. It also marks the Bollywood debut of Naga Chaitanya.
During the media interaction, Aamir also responded to calls for a boycott of his film and requested the audience to watch Laal Singh Chaddha first. “I really love the country. That’s how I am. It is rather unfortunate if some people feel that way. I want to assure everyone that it’s not the case so please don’t boycott my films. Please watch my films,” he said.
Laal Singh Chaddha is a Hindi remake of Hollywood’s classic Forrest Gump, which featured Tom Hanks in the titular role. The Hindi version has been directed by Advait Chandan. Laal Singh Chaddha is collaboratively being produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
