Latest India News | Aamir Khan Was ‘Deeply Affected’ By Laal Singh Chaddha Failure; Ex-Wife Kiran Rao Reveals

Even though Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha was one of the most awaited movies, when it finally hit theatres in August 2022, it left the audiences disappointed. The film failed to leave a mark at the box office and earned hardly Rs 60 crore at the Indian box office. Over a year after the film’s release, Aamir Khan’s former wife, Kiran Rao has now revealed that the actor was “deeply affected” by Laal Singh Chaddha’s failure.

“It’s really disheartening when you put in all the effort and it doesn’t work, which happened with Laal Singh Chaddha and it definitely affected Aamir quite deeply,” Kiran said recently as quoted by E-Times. She also added that the film’s failure not just impacted Aamir but also the entire team.

Released on August 11, 2022, Laal Singh Chaddha starred Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya in key roles. It was directed by Advait Chandan and was the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ 1994 movie Forrest Gump.

Previously, Kareena Kapoor also recalled meeting Aamir Khan for the first time after the failure of Laal Singh Chaddha when she shared that the actor looked very apologetic.

“Aamir and I were at the inauguration of NMACC (Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre). That’s when we first met after (Laal Singh Chaddha). Well, I saw his face, and I could see how he was looking at me, apologetic and sad, at the same time. Together, we’ve delivered big films – 3 Idiots (2009) and Talaash (2012). But you know what? It doesn’t matter. I wrote a long letter (on WhatsApp) to both Aamir and the director (Advait Chandan), telling them that our relationships and talent don’t depend on the outcome of a film,” Bebo told Mid-Day in October 2023.

Meanwhile, Aamir Khan will soon begin working on Sitaare Zameen Par. The actor will be starring opposite Genelia D’Souza in the film. He will also be producing Lahore: 1947 starring Sunny Deol in the lead.
