Aamir Khan- Kareena Kapoor Khan Laal Singh Chaddha is one of the highly anticipated films, and the film has been shot in several locations so far such as Kolkata, Delhi, Rajasthan, Chandigarh, and Amritsar. Two schedules in Delhi and Ladakh were still pending; however, the shoot was brought to a halt in March owing to the Coronavirus lockdown. While the shoot for films and television shows has gradually resumed, with safety measures, it is being reported that Laal Singh Chaddha shoot won’t resume until October. Now, Aamir Khan has reportedly cancelled the Ladakh schedule of Laal Singh Chaddha, post Indo- China clash at Galwan Valley.
As source informed Mid Day that shooting in Ladakh has been called off and actor-producer Aamir Khan and director Advait Chandan are considering shifting the shoot to Kargil. “Given the current scenario, shooting in Ladakh is out of the question. So, Aamir, Advait, and the top brass at the studio are considering shifting the venue to Kargil. The final call will be taken in the coming weeks,” said the source. Aamir Khan has also informed the co-producers that he does not wish to put the entire team at risk by resuming shoot so soon.
The source further added that with Aamir Khan’s staff members testing positive for Coronavirus recently, he is more certain that he will not return to the set until the situation is under control. “He also pointed out that some countries that opened up are now experiencing a second wave of the virus. Though a significant portion of the movie remains to be filmed, the creators and the studio have unanimously decided to exercise caution and hold off the shoot for now,” said the source.
Laal Singh Chaddha is an official adaptation of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump and was earlier expected to hit the theatres on Christmas 2020. However, the release date has now been pushed to 2021.
