Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, ultimately underperformed at the film office despite receiving favourable reviews. The film Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, was one of the most anticipated films of 2022. It was the official remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump, directed by Advait Chandan. Despite excellent reviews, the picture failed to impress audiences and had a low box office performance. The boycott trend also cost the movie money. Anupam Kher, a prominent actor, has now spoken out about the film, revealing whether it failed owing to the cancel culture and boycott trend.
The film starring Aamir and Kareena may not have done well in theatres, but it earned rave reviews when it was released on OTT. Netizens were blown away by Bebo and Aamir’s amazing performances. Anupam Kher recently told ANI that “if it was a great film, no power would have stopped Laal Singh Chaddha from working.” He stated, “Laal Singh Chadda was not a great film. If it was a great film then no power would’ve stopped it. Aamir Khan’s PK worked really well. The point is that you need to accept the truth.”
He also stated that if the product is good, it will find an audience. The Kashmir Files actor also stated that he does not support the boycott movement. He continued, “I am not for boycott trends, not at all but you can’t stop somebody from doing what they want to do. But if your product is good, it will find its audience. In fact, they will go with a vengeance. And the only way to kill this trend is to make brilliant work.”
He also stated that if an actor has the right to say anything about any scenario, they must also be brave enough to face the situation. Anupam Kher alluded to Aamir’s prior remark on ‘increasing intolerance in India’ in a roundabout way. Meanwhile, Aamir has yet to announce his next project following the failure of Laal Singh Chaddha. He is on leave and has stated that he wishes to spend time with his family.
On the professional front, actor Anupam Kher, will next be seen in Anurag Basu’s Metro In Dino, opposite Sara Ali Khan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pankaj Tripathi, Neena Gupta, and Konkona Sensharma.
