Mumbai, August 3 - The anticipation around Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha
is building up as the release is getting nearer. The movie will have a theatrical release on August 11 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu languages.
"Laal Singh Chaddha" will have enough to perform at the box office as Aamir Khan is in no hurry to bring the film to OTT anytime soon. While most of the Bollywood films post-pandemic have opted for a 4-week theatrical window, "Laal Singh Chaddha" will be released on OTT only after 6 months of theatrical release.
The superstar, in a recent interview, revealed why is not in hurry to bring the film to a digital platform. "One of the reasons primarily I think the curiosity of going to theaters has reduced because films come on OTT right after they come in theaters, 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", he added.
Aamir is right in what he thinks about changing the mindset of the producers and moviegoers. Theater owners across the country have been speaking against this current model and have been asking for at least 8 weeks gap between theatrical and OTT releases of films. There are reports that Bollywood has finally agreed to keep the 8-week theatrical window from August 1st.
Meanwhile, the trailer of "Laal Singh Chaddha" is receiving love from all quarters. The audience is looking forward to seeing Aamir Khan depict the life journey of Laal Singh Chaddha. It is produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios with Paramount Pictures and also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Chaitanya Akkineni.
