Laal Singh Chaddha will be released in theatres in less than two weeks. Aamir Khan plays the lead role in the movie along with Kareena Kapoor. Despite anticipation from the actor’s fans for his return to the big screen after a long absence of four years, the movie landed into controversy on Twitter after the publication of the trailer. On Twitter, the phrase “boycott Laal Singh Chaddha” was also trending.

When asked about the frenzy at a roundtable discussion, Aamir said that he was devastated. He said that it makes him sad to think that some people think he dislikes India which is not right. Amir Khan also requested people to not boycott his movie. Please see my movie, Aamir pleaded.

Following the release of the teaser, a number of social media fans linked Aamir’s facial expressions in the movie to his performances to his past movies like PK and Dhoom 3. Aamir responded to these analogies by saying that people need to watch the film entirely before drawing any conclusions. He said that the only similarity he can see between the roles he played in PK and Dhoom 3 and the part he played in Lal Singh Chaddha is that they were all innocent individuals, and he thinks one can portray naivety in a specific way.

Laal Singh Chaddha is the authorised adaptation of the Academy Award-winning movie Forrest Gump. Tom Hanks acted in the Hollywood movie. In the Indian adaptation, Aamir plays Tom and falls in love with Kareena. This is their third time working together. They have previously worked together in 3 Idiots and Talaash. Mona Singh also appears in the movie. The movie will debut on August 11.
