Laal Singh Chaddha—which is set to release on August 11—has become the talk of the town for a number of reasons, and no, you cannot watch this Aamir Khan-starrer anytime soon on OTT. In a recent interview, the Bollywood superstar talked about the rise of OTT platforms and the impact it has had on theatrical releases. 

Without mentioning names, Aamir said that the overall boom of OTT is “very nice” and is a positive step forward in the moviemaking business. However, the industry is making it a challenge for itself by releasing the films on OTTs within a few weeks of their theatrical run. 

“What we are doing is, we are saying that we will release our films in theatres but you don’t really need to come because in a few weeks you can see them at home,” Aamir told Galatta Plus, before adding that we cannot expect the audience to come to the theatres if we release the film on some OTT platform in a couple of weeks. 

Aamir Khan also said that if someone wants to make a film for OTT, then they should do it from the start. And, that clear demarcation between the two platforms must be put in place.

“I make sure that my films don’t come on OTT so fast. The whole industry has to do the same,” he shared his take on the subject. 

Laal Singh Chaddha is releasing on August 11, 2022, in three languages—Hindi, Telugu and Tamil—and features Aamir Khan in the lead role, alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Naga Chaitanya and Mona Singh. 

Directed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is the official remake of Tom Hanks’ Oscar-winning movie Forrest Gump.
