Laal Singh Chaddha, directed by Advait Chandan, was one of the most-awaited Bollywood films this year. One of the reasons behind expectations surrounding the Aamir Khan-starrer was that it is the official remake of Robert Zemeckis' Hollywood film Forrest Gump. 

The Hindi film also marked the return of the versatile actor after a four-year hiatus post Thugs of Hindostan. However, Laal Singh Chaddha, which was released in theatres on August 11, opened to discouraging reviews from most of the critics and the audience. The movie went on to become a flop at the box office, though a few aspects received appreciation from film lovers.

The film was dropped on Netflix a week ago, and it started hitting headlines again. Earlier, Aamir had said that he is keen on OTT release of his movies only after six months of their theatrical release. It looks like the poor performance of Laal Singh Chaddha has made the makers reconsider their decision.

The film is now ready to be screened at a popular film festival, and makers themselves took to social media to inform the same. The movie is one among the few Indian films which will be exhibited at the Indian Film Festival Prague tomorrow.

Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Badhaai Do, The Last Film Show, Gangubai Kathiawadi and The Great Indian Kitchen are the other Indian movies that will be screened at the four-day film festival which began on October 12. Last month, Laal Singh Chaddha became the first film to be screened at a multiplex in Kashmir.

The Aamir Khan-starrer was the first movie to be screened at Srinagar after a three-decade hiatus, owing to the political chaos that existed in the state's capital city for a long time.
