PeepingMoon Exclusive: Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha postponed again; to not release on Valentine's Day 2022 weekend anymore?


The next year's Valentine's Day weekend will not be so romantic anymore! has exclusively learned that Aamir Khan's much-anticipated Laal Singh Chaddha has been postponed again and will now release only around mid-2022. The Valentine's Day slot is now believed to have been booked by a leading production banner for its yet-untitled upcoming relationship drama starring a top actress, and the 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 us.

This is the third time Laal Singh Chaddha has been delayed. The film was originally supposed to hit cinemas on Christmas 2020 but was postponed by a year due to a production halt owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The second wave of the coronavirus this year further delayed the shooting plan, advancing the release to February 11, 2022. 

Laal Singh Chaddha is the official remake of Tom Hanks' 1994 Hollywood classic 'Forrest Gump' and chronicles the life story of a slow-witted but kind-hearted man from his childhood days (in 1968) to 2018. Produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Viacom18 Studios, and Paramount Pictures, the film that also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Naga Chaitanya and Mona Singh has reportedly been shot across 100 locations in India.
