Controversies around Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha refuse to die down.
On Thursday night, an apology video showed up on the official social media handles of Aamir Khan Productions that talked about the controversies surrpounding Aamir Khan's film Laal Singh Chaddha.
The now-deleted video footage began with the words Michami Dukkadam, loosely translating to 'may all my improper actions be inconsequential'. A voice, which did sound like Aamir Khan's, could be heard saying, "All of us are human beings and we only make mistakes. Sometimes through our words and sometimes by our actions, at times we do it without knowing and at times when we are angry," while the screen was completely black and no one was visible.
It then went on to seek 'forgiveness' for hurting people's feelings. "We also hurt people with our jokes and sometimes without talking. If I have hurt your feelings in any way ever then I ask for your forgiveness with my heart, promise and being," added the voice.
The mysterious video clip concluded with Michami Dukkadam, with the theme song from actor Shah Rukh Khan's film Kal Ho Na No playing in the backdrop.
Netizens were quick to share their thoughts on the cryptic video, with one writing, "Hacked For Sure!! Didn't expect this from Aamir...the voice ain't his," while another fan added to the conversation, "This account is hacked for sure." "Hack ho gaya kya account (Has the account been hacked)?" asked another Twitter user. "As always, every year, Aamir says Micchaami Dukkadam, the Jain sorry. This time, voiced -- by who?" asked another fan.
Meanwhile, Laal Singh Chaddha has faced boycott calls on social media. Aamir Khan’s visit to Turkey in 2020 and a meeting with Turkey’s First Lady Erdogan triggered off a massive backlash against him once again. Aamir has also been facing uproar on social media for his old remarks regarding intolerance in the country. All this has said to have affected the business of Laal Singh Chaddha.
Directed by Secret Superstar director Advait Chandan and written by Atul Kulkarni, Laal Singh Chaddha also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Manav Vij in important roles.
