A source with knowledge of this Laal Singh Chaddha project has revealed that “Aamir Khan and producers Viacom 18 have voluntarily taken their film until February 2022. The 2021 Christmas weekend (which is in which Aamir typically releases his film) currently has Kabir Khan’s 83′(December 24) and The Shahid Kapoor sports film Jersey(December 31) and Rohit Shetty’s Ranveer Singh-starring film Cirkus(December 31) set to release.
Aamir graciously quit his regular slot gracefully. The producer-director Luv Ranjan who is preparing for his Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor film to release in late 2022 states that a specific protocol must be followed when releasing dates.
“Now that movie theaters in Maharashtra are opening again, there are some producers who’ve been waiting patiently in the line. They’ll need to be granted the right to have their way. It’s the morally right and morally acceptable way to go. It is not possible to skip the queue. Filmmakers such as Rohit Shetty as well as Kabir Khan have had to wait more than a year for theatrical release. They’ll be first. The rest will be waiting.”
