Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha was released this year on August 11. There were a lot of expectations placed on it because it starred Aamir Khan, whose movies frequently smash records and become classic blockbusters. Unfortunately, Aamir's performance in Laal Singh Chaddha was a rare failure. The movie received bad word-of-mouth. Additionally, there was a lot of criticism directed at the movie, and it appeared that a part of the audience "boycotted" it.

However, the situation altered after Laal Singh Chaddha was released on Netflix on October 6. Many movie fans who watched the movie on the major streaming service thought it was endearing. Indeed, many people have admitted on social media that they erred by skipping the theatres to see this film since last month.

Manav Vij, who played a key role in Laal Singh Chaddha, recently made a pointed statement about this. In an interview with Mid-Day a few days earlier, Manav admitted that numerous online users had apologised to him for skipping the movie because of the boycott trend. Manav criticised them for subjecting the producers to suffering as a result of their "stupidity," rather than feeling humbled by their open acceptance. Additionally, he advised them to give the producers a sum equal to a movie ticket.

Manav Vij said, "Many people also apologized to me on Twitter, saying they didn’t watch Laal Singh Chaddha in theatres following the boycott trend. But they loved it when they watched it on Netflix. I said, 'If you were so apologetic, you should have transferred Rs. 500 to Aamir Khan Productions’ account. The producers are at a loss because of your stupidity'."

The film Laal Singh Chaddha, which was directed by Advait Chandan, tells the story of a guy with a low IQ. Laal Singh Chaddha, a soldier during the 1999 India-Pakistan war, is depicted in a pivotal scene as saving the Mohammed movie (Manav Vij). Mohammed is actually a Pakistani soldier, something Laal is unaware of. Despite losing both of his legs, Laal gives him a new lease on life. Laal's love and respect for him make him want to get better and go back to Pakistan to stop extremists from brainwashing young people.

The film also starred Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mona Singh in pivotal roles.
