Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s movie, Laal Singh Chaddha, has been delayed multiple times. The film, which is the Hindi remake of Forrest Gump, was all set to release on April 14, 2022, on the occasion of Baisakhi. However, the makers of the film have decided to postpone the film’s release. And it is because they haven’t been able to complete the film. Just a while ago, the makers of Laal Singh Chaddha announced a new release date.
An official statement was issued by Aamir Khan Productions on their official Instagram handle.The statement reads,”This is to announce that our film, Laal Singh Chaddha, will not be releasing on 14th April as planned. This is because we are unable to complete the film in time. The film will now be releasing on 11 Aug 2022 in theatres worldwide. We would like to thank Mr Bhushan Kumar, T Series and Om Raut and the entire team of Adipurush from the bottom of our hearts.”
The other half of the statement reads, “We would like to thank Mr. Bhushan Kumar, TSeries, Om Raut and the entire team of Adipurush from the bottom of our hearts. We would like to thank them for being so helpful and understanding, and for shifting the release date of their much awaited, Adipurush, starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan, so that Laal Singh Chaddha can come on 11th Aug 2022 (sic).”

If Laal Singh Chaddha released on April 14, it would have clashed with Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2. However, in an interview last year, Aamir Khan revealed that he checked with Yash before locking the film’s release date.
The film has been directed by Advait Chandan. Laal Singh Chaddha is collaboratively being produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. In Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan will be seen sharing screen space with his 3 Idiots co-stars Kareena Kapoor and Mona Singh. It will also star Naga Chaitanya. The film marks the Telugu star’s Bollywood debut.
