Aamir Khan is one of those actors who argues that he values quality above quantity and hence never rushes his work. After a long wait, Aamir Khan’s much-anticipated film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has finally been given a release date. The film will be released on April 14 of the next year. However, Aamir’s film will compete at the box office with Yash’s ‘KGF: Chapter 2’, which opens on the same day.

Now, in a recent interview, Aamir opened up on why he delayed the release of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ as he said, “There are two ways of doing the visual effects — you can do a rush job or you can go for quality work. I didn’t want a rush job, hence I preferred to postpone the film.”

He also expressed his regret over the clash of his film with Yash’s ‘KGF: Chapter 2’, the Lagaan actor also said, “Ideally, I would never take a date which has already been finalised by the producer of another big film. I hate to give the impression that I am trespassing on someone else’s territory, but since I am playing a Sikh for the first time in my career, the Baisakhi day (14th April) seemed to be the most appropriate for the release of Laal Singh Chaddha.”

He further added, “Before I finalised the date, I profusely apologised to the producer (Vijay Kiragandur), director (Prashanth Neel), and lead man (Yash) of KGF Chapter 2. I wrote to them and explained my predicament. I told them how the lockdown had made matters difficult for all producers. I also explained that a Baisakhi release for my film would be ideal. They understood my viewpoint and were good enough to ask me to go ahead in spite of their film releasing on the same day. I was very touched by their gesture. In fact, I had a long heart-to-heart conversation with Yash who was very supportive of my plan. I told him that KGF was an established brand name and so, people would definitely patronise the sequel. I also told him that since his was an action film whereas mine was a family film as it was a love story, the two films would hopefully not eat into each other’s collections. I also volunteered to promote his film. I told Yash, I would be watching his film on 14th April in a cinema hall as I am a fan of the KGF franchise, like millions of others.”
