Laal Singh Chaddha, the eagerly awaited movie starring Aamir Khan, is getting closer and closer to releasing in theatres, and the audience is becoming impatient by the minute! This Aamir Khan starrer won’t be releasing on OTT until six months after the movie’s theatrical premiere because of the frenzy around “Laal Singh Chaddha.”
Several films release on OTT soon after they hit the cinema, which is why the curiosity among the audience about going to the theatre and watching a movie has somewhat reduced. Talking about the same, Aamir Khan says “One of the reasons primarily I think the curiosity of going to theatres has reduced because films come on OTT right after they come in theatres, they come on OTT very fast. So I have always tried to keep a 6-month gap for my films. I don’t know what the industry follows, but I like to keep a 6-month gap. So that’s what I tried to do for all my films and up till now, we have managed that”.
Will other prominent actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and Hrithik Roshan follow Aamir’s pattern of releasing movies on OTT only after six months? All the major films, such as Pathaan, Tiger 3, Vikram Vedha Remake, Thank God, and Ram Setu, starring the biggest stars in the business, are scheduled to hit theatres soon. If these movies adopt Aamir Khan’s formula, they may all earn respectable box office collections even if they are not huge hits. Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn had already released their films direct to ott during pandemic.
Meanwhile, fans can’t stop gushing over Laal Singh Chaddha’s trailer, soundtrack, music video, and every other nugget of information that the producers provide, which is why the endless build-up around Laal Singh Chaddha is admirable. The film’s trailer, meanwhile, is being praised by everyone. The crowd is eager to watch Aamir Khan portray Laal Singh’s life story.
The film, which also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya in major roles is all set to release in cinemas on August 11, 2022.
