Aamir Khan actor Laal Singh Chaddha was one of the most anticipated films of the year as the emotional drama film marked Aamir’s return to the big screen after four years and people watched the superstar adapt Hollywood classic Forrest Gump for Indian cinema. .
However, Advait Chandan’s directing turned out to be a colossal failure at the box office as the film only collected Rs 58.73 crore in net India collections (according to Bollywood Hungama). Now, Aamir’s brother Faisal Khan has expressed his opinion about the film which hit theaters on August 11.
In a recent interview, Faisal shared that he didn’t watch Laal Singh Chaddha right away, but did watch the film later, adding that he thought the film was only good in parts. Faisal shared his opinion, telling ETimes: “I thought Aamir should have picked a better script, especially since he was going to come out with a movie after 4 years. With Aamir and other good actors, you expect them to do too good a job. But they did. unfortunately not with Laal Singh Chaddha. It wasn’t a wow! movie.”

One of the main reasons for Laal Singh Chaddha’s failure was also the boycott trend against the film that started after internet users brought out Aamir’s old comments about “growing intolerance” in India and attacked the film. “Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill will,” the Dangal actor had stated in 2016.
Before the release of Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir said he regrets hurting someone’s feelings. Faisal also responded to his brother’s alleged “apologies”, adding that he should have apologized right after he made that statement and not before his film was released.
