Aamir Khan's Laal Singh Chaddha Moved To February 2022: Here's The Reason
Laal Singh Chaddha, the Forrest Gump remake headlined by Aamir Khan has been rescheduled. Instead of Christmas 2021, it will now be released on Valentine’s Day 2022. This is in deference to the cluster of films awaiting their turn to be released after theatres in Maharashtra reopen on October 22.

A source close to the Laal Singh Chaddha project informs, “Aamir Khan and his co-producers Viacom 18 have voluntarily taken their film to February 2022. The Christmas week of 2021 (which is the week when Aamir traditionally releases his films ) already has Kabir Khan’s ‘83 (December 24), the Shahid Kapoor sports film Jersey (December 31) and Rohit Shetty’s Ranveer Singh starrer Cirkus (December 31) lined up for release.

Aamir Khan gracefully bowed out of his traditional slot.


The theatrical release dates of the highly-awaited movies - Ranveer Singh’s 83, Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and Shahid Kapoor's Jersey among others - were recently announced on social media. The announcement came after the Maharashtra government announced the reopening of theatres from October 22 which were closed due to the second wave of COVID 19.

Producer-director Luv Ranjan, who is readying his Ranbir Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor starrer for a late 2022 release, says a protocol has to be followed in the release schedules.

“Now that the movie theatres in Maharashtra are finally re-opening there are producers who have been patiently waiting in line. They will have to be given the right of way. It is the decent, morally correct thing to do. One can’t jump the queue. Filmmakers like Rohit Shetty and Kabir Khan have waited for over a year for a theatrical release. They will come first.The others will have to wait," he tells me.
