How Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies saved Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha from KGF: Chapter 2

The films, namely Pushpa: The Rise Part 1, RRR, and K.G.F: Chapter 2, left an impressive mark on the Hindi belt. Thus, people have been questioning the credibility of Bollywood films and their performances at the box office. Moreover, even actors and filmmakers are being quizzed about the way Bollywood films have been looking on the map. During the Telugu trailer launch of Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan was also asked about the infamous Bollywood vs. South Film industry.

At the event, the superstar stated, "I think that it's wonderful to see cinema coming out of any region. I will say that, in this particular case, it's a Telugu cinema. There was a K.G.F in Kannada; there's Pushpa, there's Rajamouli's film Baahubali and RRR. All these films have all come from the south of India, and they have won the hearts of audiences across the country."

Aamir recalled the averting of a clash between Laal Singh Chaddha and K.G.F: Chapter 2 while calling it fortunate. He revealed, "I remember when KGF 2 was about to be released, there was a lot of excitement among the Hindi audience, amongst my old friends. I must say that Laal Singh Chaddha was supposed to be released on that day. But fortunately for us, Red Chillies was taking a little time on the VFX, so we got saved. Otherwise, we would have come up with KGF 2."

The Dangal star concluded by saying, "I think it is wonderful to see that cinema coming out of one state in India can successfully give joy and entertainment to the whole country. It's a celebration time for us when that happens. So, I think it's wonderful to see that."

Laal Singh Chaddha is directed by Advait Chandan, and the film is the Hindi adaptation of Forrest Gump. The film, featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan as the female lead, is slated for release on August 11, 2022.
