After delivering the blockbuster film ‘Secret Superstar’ Aamir Khan and filmmaker Advait Chandan teamed up again in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha.’ While many expected the film to emerge as a blockbuster, it not just tanked at the box office, but the film also failed to win the hearts of audiences. ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ turned out to be the biggest flop of the year at the box office. And, this gave rise to rumours of a fallout between Aamir and Advait. However, the director has now reacted to all such speculations and set the record straight.
Advait Chandan took to his Instagram handle to dismiss all the reports claiming 'all is not well' between him and Khan. He posted a photo of him and Aamir where they could be seen smiling and posing together. Alongside it, the director wrote, "Guys, for all those talking about a fall out between Aamir sir and me, I just want to say that we are like Genie and Aladin, Baloo and Mowgli, Amar and Prem.#HumSaathSaathHain #Bandhan #AamirKhan #LaalSinghChaddha.” ALSO READ: Lal Singh Chaddha: Aamir Khan Had Been Eyeing Forrest Gump Remake For Eight Years, Says ‘I’m Thrilled It’s Finally Happening’
To note, Aamir and Advait share a great bond of friendship and have been working together for the past many years. Before casting the PK actor in a special cameo in his debut film Secret Superstar, Chandan had worked as an assistant production manager on Khan’s film Taare Zameen Par. He was also the casting director and post-production supervisor on 'Dhobi Ghat' which was directed by Kiran Rao.
Meanwhile, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ also starred Kareena Kapoor Khan and was released on 11 August 2022. The film earned just Rs. 58.73 crores at the box office. Recently, it premiered on Netflix, and the movie has been receiving a good response on the streaming platform.
